Definitely antistatic (conductive) foam, and avoid high static materials like many plastics. When handling, stay in a static safe environment: don't wear clothing that produces a lot of static, ground your body with a wrist strap, and work on a conductive surface. My experience comes from electronics manufacturing and repair jobs. I saw a really good video made by Apple and Woz back in the day but I can't find it now.

A "noob" question --
I have some old ICs -- custom chips, RAM, etc.. that I'd like to properly
Is storing these in antistatic foam and in a (3D printed) plastic drawer of
some kind OK? should i be buying/using IC Chip tubes instead?
What's the best way to get reasonably priced supplies for safely storing
