Sports cards are typically stored in sleeves, such as the one pictured above. These sleeves are designed to go in three-ring binders. The sleeves protect sports cards from the rigors of the outside world and keep them in pristine condition. For those who want to raise the ante to total protection, there are hard sports cards storage cases. These cases are made of hard plastic and are available in a wide array of sizes and thicknesses.   Cabinet and briefcase style cases allow you not only store all the most valuable and well-protected of a sports card collection together, but they also will store well at home or in your storage unit.

Comic Book Storage

Comic Book Storage Tips

Bags & boards are great for protecting your comic books.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Comic books are long-time favorite amongst collectors. Comic books have been around since the late 1800’s and now are a multi-million dollar industry. Keeping a comic book in pristine condition is vital to the value of the book. There are many ways to protect your comic book collection while in storage.

  1. Boxes- specially built for comics. They come in two different sizes: long and short.
  2. Boards- The stiff board backing helps to keep the comics flat. However, the boards will need to be changed every 2-5 years to keep the board from changing the color of the comic.
  3. Bags- Made of polypropylene , or known as “mylar”, these bags protect your books from the elements.
  4. You are going to need somewhere to keep your comic book collection! They are best stored in a climate controlled setting. Avoid keeping them in wet, hot, or drafty areas.

 Sneaker Storage

Sneakers have exploded in popularity over the past decade. Lines wrap around stores nationwide whenever the latest Air Jordan, Lebron, or Kobe shoe is released. With this growth, came a resurgence of collectors as well as a secondary market catering to those who missed out on release day. As the demand for these items has increased, so has the prices they command on the secondary market. As the size of sneaker collections has grown over the past several years, finding places to store footwear has become paramount. Here are some tips for storing and protecting your footwear.

Tips for storing sneakers

Silica packs come in different sizes & are great for absorbing moisture

  1. The use of silica packets does help with keeping moisture away from your shoes. However if you are going to utilize them, make sure they do not touch the actual shoe, because they will dry out the leather or the midsole, which in some shoes will cause or accelerate the deterioration of the midsole.
  2. If the shoe has a clear outsole, remove the paper that comes with the shoes, if they are kept in the shoe box. The paper is acidic, and the acidity will cause the soles to yellow.
  3. Do not store sneakers in extreme temperatures, either very hot or very cold. In the case of very hot, it can cause sole separation, and very cold can also affect the glue and integrity of material components. It is best to store your sneakers in a climate controlled area, with the optimal temperature being 68-72 degrees farenheit.
  4. If they are stored in a climate controlled unit, add moth balls, particularly if boxes are sitting on the floor. You do not want any of nature’s precious creatures getting in to your shoe boxes.
  5. Take your shoes out of the box periodically and let them get some air.
  6. The most effective way to preserve your sneakers is to WEAR THEM! There is nothing worse than waiting years and years to wear a shoe, and the midsole crumbles the first time you put them on. Wearing them does help maintain their integrity.

When you store your collectibles, especially outside of your home, you want to take the necessary steps to ensure your valuables are not damaged. Following a few of these simple tips can keep your treasured items in great shape for years to come.
