So, these are Silver Age by date, but sized much bigger. I picked a few off ebay several months ago, as I start dabbling in older comics. I never thought about the size of them, so of course I don't have the proper bags/boards. I went ahead and ordered golden age bags/boards off ebay the other day w/o even thinking "hey smartass, maybe you should measure the comic itself". So, if anyone knows (Pat maybe?) - will these books fit inside a Golden Age bag, or do I need to move up to Magazine or something?

I'm talking about this series:

I've got a few of those. They fit snugly in Golden size B&B's. Magazine bags let them shift around too much for me.

You're right, I'm no Pat. He knows more about this than me. He was born in the stone age after all!Laughing

I bet he still has one of those cars where you gotta stick your feet through the bottom to make it go.

Golden age should work fine depending on the bag company. Some sell Golden Age and Thick Golden Age. The thick are supposed to be for the early Golden Age books but then they make the regular Golden Age slightly smaller than other suppliers.

You should have said something to me earlier. I could have sold you a small supply of bags and boards so you wouldn't have had to order full packs.



The following stores are all stores that I've dealt with or have become friends with through the forums and I highly recommend them all.

Thanks for the confirmation, not that I doubted MoonKnight. I plan to get some more books this size, so I am sure they will be used. Eventually ;)

While I have y'alls ear, Savage Sword of Conan - I had an issue or two of this, I think in grade school. Don't have them anymore - were these similar sized to Turok or were they true "magazine" size? I am going to be looking into those soon as well.

They are mag sized. I have a box or two of them still I'll be posting at some point. But yeah, they are true magazine sized.
