#97191 Mine did, i put it to the side for the moment. Is it just a thicker poly or is it PVC, don't want to deal with off-gassing but it didn't seem as thick or have that PVC smell so i wasn't sure?

#97205 Yeah it's like a heavy mylar deal. Resealable. Mine went in the trash. Not a big fan of resealable sleeves. :)

#97238 I think those are a bit too big, they are huge! But I can get albums like Carpenter Brut Trilogy and Bloody Moon OST to fit just fine.

Seconded. These are the best I've used.

4 mil, big enough for 3LP trifolds, and 29 cents each shipped (compared to 52 cents for the Sleeve City ones).

I've never used those, Tex. I stock up on sleeves when Sleeve City runs one of their not infrequent 15-20% off promotions. It drops the unit price considerably and they are top notch.

#97244 @texas - Thank for posting the amazon listing. I will try those out as well. Always looking for a better deal, as shipping from Sleeve City is expensive.

@jgibbs - For the really huge DW sleeves, I have used the Sleeve City deluxe oversized 5mil outers. They *almost* cover the entire jacket! ;)
