If you are particularly serious about your collection, you need to invest currency in protecting it. I have regularly felt this way. When I first started to collect scarce as well as vintage comic books in my teenage years, I regularly took care of them. I sealed them in bags, using cardboard backing so they would never get bent. I kept my entire collection in boxes, as well as stored them in a safe place away from moisture as well as sunlight. I still do all of those things, except now my collection consists of fifty thoUSAnd comics! I considered paying for a weather conditions controlled storage locker, however instead I decided to build my own collection room at home, with its own dedicated Heating as well as Air Conditioning system. This was not a cheap thing to have done, however compared to the price of renting a weather conditions controlled storage locker for multiple years, it was adequate. I needed a dedicated Heating as well as Air Conditioning system for the collection room, plus additional insulation in the walls as well as blackout shades for the window. I didn’t need to make the room as cold as a freezer by any means, even though I needed reliable as well as consistent weather conditions control settings that would never change no matter what. There is an ideal level of temp as well as humidity for comic books, as well as I got that locked in! The only possible concern I have is a long-term power blackout for the section would shut down this Heating as well as Air Conditioning system. In case that happens I have a small power generator in the storage shed, which I can hook up to the Heating as well as Air Conditioning system in case of emergencies.
