Top Staple... this is very painful to observe









I thought you were talking about FLECKS of rust, which even then would be unusual on such "young" comics. This looks like some parasitic infection! Man, I am totally bummed for you.

How are the covers? It's hard to believe that much moisture hasn't affected them in some way.




I don't think that's moisture causing that. It looks more like serious corrosion caused by some other chemical in that safe.

the other 3 only have the start... some grouped flecks. No where near what happened to this one. Its one of the oldest books in the safe

I agree with you since there is no "other" visible signs of moisture infiltration such as "wavy" pages or other paper damage like foxing, etc.

I have heard that some coin owners (with coins made of precious metals - rust proof) have experienced other reactions (toning issues) within fireproof safes.

Brian is thinking of helping me with this after I learn more information about the chemicals used in my safe. I find it hard to believe that the chemical is not at least a partial culprit if not the primary one.

Wow Bruce,

This really sucks! I also have a Sentry fire-proof safe, but only the one already damaged comic in it. I had planned to get a larger safe for my slabbed collection, but will now look into it very carefully.

Don't feel bad about not knowing this could happen. Regardless of what some might say, I think there is a very large percentage of us that wouldn't have known it or assumed the relation of guns to staples. I too thought it had more to do with the ammunition.

Heck, I'm racking my brain as I type trying to think if I have anything else potentially at risk in my safe back home.

I hope they can save your books, keep us updated.

Bruce, not that it would've made much of difference, but were your CGC books also bagged on the outside and sealed?

This can't be the first, or second time judging by Steve's post, this has occurred. Collectors have been putting their comics in safes for decades. Why didn't this problem become evident when collectors were storing their comics in safes without slabs?

Could it be some harmful process occurs with the interaction of the safe and slabs together?

thats interesting.......

but maybe its a recent spread of the usually smaller fire-resistant safes for the home that are selling in Home Depot and Staples. Didnt it used to be that buying a safe was a very rare occurance? and only done by companies you had to find in the Yellow Pages? And the buyers were jewelry companies etc??

Id hate to think the slabs are a factor chemically. With the PCS announcement this week, CGC is a good guy again!!!

I've seen those small safes sold in Walmart/Home Depot/etc. since the early 80s.
