Hello Bryan,

As a regular dealer in ML titles (and not a collector), I would say I 
get very little interest in ML volumes without jackets. As for those 
jackets you've got in storage, I'd get them out and wrap them in 
archival mylar (Brodart) dust jacket covers. The DJs are much more 
artistic and colorful than the books themselves and add a lot to the 
enjoyment of the ML panoply.
