At long last, I've started cataloging and organizing my 78's. I've been collecting them -- or, more accurately, accumulating them -- for decades, but have never had any idea how many I have, and little idea what they were, other than that they're all pre-war (I don't keep later discs) and I'm pretty sure there's nothing really valuable in there, which is good because I'd be afraid to play such a record. I've got a spread sheet going and a good system in place, and I've gotten through about a thousand so far, separating acoustic from electric, putting each one in a sleeve, marking it, and boxing them up. I've got plenty of sleeves and boxes from Bags Unlimited, but everything is for 10" 78's, which are the vast majority of my records. I do, however, have some odd-sized ones -- maybe 100 or so 12" discs, a couple of blue American Record Company discs that are probably 10.75" or 11" in diameter, a few dozen 7" discs (mostly Emersons -- some with their original sleeves, which are cool; did anyone out there know Emerson made external horn machines? I didn't), a lot of 6" Little Wonders, and one 8" Victor record. My question is: What can I do for sleeves for these? And boxes? The only 12" sleeves I've ever seen are floppy (for LP's), ditto for 7" sleeves (for 45's), and never anything else. I'm probably most concerned about the American Record Company discs, because they're the oldest and most unusual, but they also seem like they would be the hardest fit. Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
