I see images of records selling with sleeves all the time. I am sure 
that those of us who have DD's either have some of them or wish they had 
more. As mere holders (contrary to those of other makes) they are unique 
due to their size, but moreso, each one has a snippet of interesting 
data on it, making the record inside that much more meaningful.

I am a bit astounded that no one has started a database of sleeve notes. 
What would you suggest that we could do to make an accessible source?
