This subject discussion has prompted me to ask this. There is a
current practice by some of the eBay vendors of vintage prerecorded
reel to reel tapes. They are putting the outer boxes in plastic
bags as an additional protection. Are they doing me a favor in
doing so, or should I dump this outer protective plastic.
With the cardboard inside the plastic bag, my hypothesis is that it
can do its buffering in there and that's better than the bag inside
the box with just the reel in it. But, I'm not sure it's a good idea
either way for long-term storage. I think for shipping it's a good idea.
