Hello Midtowners, this is Michael from the back issues department for another blog entry on protecting your collection.  On the last entry we talked about how bag and boards could protect your book as well as damage it by causing spine roll.  However, using larger bag and boards could prevent this.  Replacing your bag and boards is a case-by-case situation — both could go through wear and tear depending on how much you read the book.  Look for signs of acid burn, tears, wrinkles, etc.  Focusing on the key or money books might be a good start. If possible, keep your collection in a cool (temperature) room.  “Chemistry is the study of transformation”  thank you Walter White/Heisnberg!  Inside that bag and boarded comic book is a series of chemical reactions.  At high temperatures and humidity, chemical reactions accelerate, which affects the book, board, and bag.
