I am constantly amazed when a seller packages and ships raw books with the cover(s) facing out towards any protective piece of cardboard or worse to bubble wrap. Most know to use cardboard, larger than the books. Most are learning about taping, using painter's tape or leaving a tab to make pulling easy. Most know it is very helpful to use an external bag and place the comics inside so no tape goes onto the actual bag of the comic. Some think about not taping along the spine. But I cannot understand putting a comic in a bag with a backing board and then packaging on the cover side. If there are (2) or more books, place them cover-to-cover! Set the backing boards to the outside. And even more amazing, getting a group of books and the most expensive one is on top with the cover facing the protective cardboard.
Maybe it's just me but the most expensive books would be towards the middle of the stack, cover to cover and work out always ending with the backing board placed to face out towards the packaging.
Just a thought
