  • Hi all, my first post, so hopefully I won't incur wraith for posting in the wrong section! I did take a look to see if this had been sked before, so apologies if it has.

    How often should you, if at all, rebag your comics? They're in mylar bags, with backing boards, but have been in them for quite a while, but not sure if they need to be refreshed periodically?

    They're stored in comic boxes.

  • for me its more the board then the bag... the board absorbs all the impurities from the comic paper, including ink sometimes... the bags id say is up to you, but if you are changing the board...well, might as well right... just monitor your boards and thatll give a clear indication on when to switch...

  • My two cents is look at the bag and if it's discoloured (ie. yellow) then replace that baby. Another thing to consider is how many you need to actually re-bag (and I assume board). If it's some (under 100 or so), go ahead. If it's thousands, maybe start looking at some CBR values and any book worth more than $10 or $20 should receive some extra love.
