"Hi, National Geographic started issuing the Burgundy colored map slipcases in 1985. As for the Burgundy colored magazine slipcases, it was likely during the first half of the 1980's. Stephen"

Thanks to you all.  I want to add to my collection and I need to get some references to good online dealers or traders.  I have a substantial number of maps I am  integrating into my collection presently and finding that I have a number of seconds in the 50's and 40"s.  Am also looking to add to my teens and before.
