It's mostly just a recap of the postseason and an overview of the entire season, but there are a lot of tribute ads from companies that are Sox-specific. Worth 50 cents, at least.

I bought it to add my other collection of newspapers.

Anybody know the best way to preserve papers?

Big, acid-free bags, if you can find them; comic collectors use acid free bags to prevent the pages from turning yellow.

It depends on if you ever want to read those newspapers or not. You roll them up in tin foil then seal them in a plastic bag.

I still have my newspapers from the day Kennedy got shot, the first moon landing and of course, September 23, 1959!

Was wondering the same thing. I was just going to put in a plastic box, but I like the comic collector idea.

I've used these:

You can get 100 for cheap.

I'm not a professional collector, so I don't know how they rate with other products...

I have some 30-40 papers from the last 20 years...

While I'd love to spend the weekend scanning in 48 oversized pages, I'm going to have to disappoint my fans in Toronto and elsewhere and decline; sorry.

Bags Unlimited (http://www.bagsunlimited.com) is a great source for everything related to collecting pretty much anything under the sun, especially records, CDs, magazines, comics, post cards, etc.

Do I detect a note of sarcasm there?:wink:

I was wondering how you were going to get out of that!!

Meanwhile, the Sun-times screwed up by putting the game 4 boxscore with the game 2 story.

The also screwed up their timeline of Sox season finishes since 1901 which highlights postseason results. They list the 2005 Sox as "American League Champions". :?: Didn't they win the World Series?

The best stuff is Mylar, which is considered archival quality.
