Unless the buyer is a library with a hundred year span or so in mind, I've 
never seen the sense is paying for acid free record sleevs so long as they 
are only mildly off.  They should, however , be thick enough to prevent the 
casual bunching damage from being slid in and out of the shelves along side 
other records.

I bought some of the 16" sleeves, with center holes, from Kut Nauck and was 
pleased with them.  And no peek-a-boo is necessary.
