Welcome to my mailer feature and guide. After having a few questions about mailers I decided, like with the coins, to make a guide. :) All the pictures shown here are from my collection and a few others as noted. I've also tried to document the other versions out there. Those versions are simply based on my experience with mailers and if anyone would like to help me out with getting those as correct as possible, I would appreciate it. I will be adding some notes to each one as I have time. To figure out the baggie types please refer to the baggie guide on the archive. I was originally going to post the dimensions of all the boxes, inserts, etc for those that want custom cases made, but with the repro mailer boxes that showed up earlier this year, I decided against it. I will still share that information though to anyone that is a trusted member here wanting to get cases made.

Mailers can be tough to display. One example is like this one where the collector put the bagged figure on top of the mailer box. Another way is with acrylic cases which I believe AFA was the first to come up with this method. of displaying mailers in an acrylic cases with compartments showing the box, bagged figure, paperwork, etc.

Picture 1: Some of Craig Thomas' graded mailers.
Picture 2: My mailers in Oscar cases on display.
