    Thanks for the feedback guys....truth be told, I know it is real because King signed the book in front of me.....but it is a bit unconventional, and I wanted to see what members thought about it.

    I will post more pictures in the new P&J thread shortly.

    Well, in his defense, I was holding the book, and he was standing while he signed it.

    Looks great Rick, that was a fun trip, on par for recent signatures, the fact that he signed for all of us was awesome was happy to get my Stand and Shining Proof signed but great pick on your part on choosing the Comic Con Charlie especially with no Beryl Evans signature!!!!

    Hi guys,

    Apologies if this question has already been answered. A quick search turned up no results.

    Does the absence of glassine paper issued originally with a book (Danse Macabre - S/L, for example) diminish the copy's overall value?

    As always, I appreciate the feedback of this community!

    I believe as with any edition that requires a glassline... it does detract some value... yes.

    Glassine is easily purchased and cut to size.

    Im sure it is a collecting faux pas for purists (of which I am not), but glassine doesn't always age particularly well and there is nothing unique about it, so I have no issue at all with a replacement piece being added to a book which is missing it.

    Thanks, everyone, for the thoughtful replies.

    I definitely respect that, for some, the glassine paper was never kept with some of Mr. King's more collectable books post shipping. I see, too, that the paper itself can be easily replaced today. I just wasn't sure if, in the absence of the original paper, some books are sort of viewed as being defective. Seems like this could go either way based on perspective.

    Unlike other aspects of collectible books, the glassine paper isn't unique. Replacing it isn't really an issue if done well.

    Probably been answered, but I have what is probably a stupid question.

    I've been looking at member collections. First off, HOLY CRAP there is some really nice stuff out there. OK, on to my question. What is the reasoning for some people using mylar covers where others I have noticed use bags. Is there an advantage either way. I can see where the bag would protect from dust, ect., but wouldn't humidity be a concern? Or, is it a special king of bag? If so, what king is it? I may have a need, eventually Thanks.

    I use archival plastic bags for my proofs and for the other items that are appropriate. I do not seal the bags but store them with the open side down, thus keeping the dust to a minimum.

    Not a stupid question at all.

    Gotcha. Makes sense. So the traycased Prime Evil would probably be good as is since it's completely covered anyway?

    I agree with John, it's not a stupid question at all.


    The mylar dustjacket cover protects the dustjacket very well. It provides UV, dust and other physical protection.


    The bags primarily offer dust protection. They also offer some other physical protection. Depending on they type of bag it could offer UV protection too.


    I have a lot of books with Brodart covers. I also have a lot of books in bags. Not to mention (though I did) the books with both.


    If you are concerned about dust then bag the books.


    As long as the humidity isn't high when you bag the book, and it doesn't get too high where you store them, they should be fine bagged. I live in Florida and know about humidity.

    Yeah, I'm in Georgia. Humidity here isn't quite as bad as in Florida, but it's not very much fun in the summer.

    Can you point me to a website where I can buy the right bags? Thanks.

    Yes, unless you want to keep the dust off the traycase and can find a bag big enough.

    I get the bags from my local comics shop.

    Some slipcases and traycases have issues that require bagging. Most don't. The Prime Evil S/L should be fine the way it is.

    Also some materials 'stick' like the traycase for The Shining. Not sure what material they are made of, but they will transfer or stick to another traycase or slipcase if left unbagged. I bag almost every traycased books I own. I also like my books bagged as it prevents the wear at the heels when they are slid in and out of the shelves.
