Preserve your National Geographic magazines with richly embossed, elegantly bound slipcases. Each two-case set, January–June and July–December, holds 12 monthly issues. Available for years 1950 through 2009 and in this undated slipcase.
My father has National Geographic magazines from the early 1960s. He had started with the old slipcovers (red and black) but they were no longer available so we reshelved all of his magazines into the new ones a few years ago. They are nicer - easier to clean. He had outgrown them so we needed more but when I went to order some more the totally blank ones (the ones with no dates or years on the spine) were no longer available. Sure wish consistancy was a priority these days.
I'm not sure why the format for "undated" slip cases was changed to include the months, i.e. Jan-Jun, factory embossed on the cases. Since these slip cases will most often be used to store magazines dated earlier than 1950 they will not fit six issues, often times only four. This makes months irrelevant at best. Rather than add the months, the slip cases should have been produced like the larger sized 1950 "dated" slip cases. I have added, and covered the more recently produced embossed months, gold lettered black label tape for all issues 1888 thru 1949.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
From National Geographic:Thank you for your feedback. Over the years, our members have indicated a strong preference for slipcases dated Jan-Jun and Jul-Dec since membership has traditionally run January through December.
