I have my graphics card in this bubble wrapper bag that is the same size as the graphics card and i was wondering if it's bad for it or could cause some static.

Cant see this being an issue. Iv always kept spare components chucked in a drawer or box with nothing round them at all and never had a problem.
 
No static worries and pertaining to the above comment about degrading or getting sticky, if it's stored out of light and in a cool dry area, it can stay in there indefinitely. Of course the best solution is storing components in their original anti-static foil wrapper from the factory. This is why I always keep my packaging materials including original box for my hardware. Drives my wife nuts, but she knows how anal I am about it. Also helps with resale value having original packaging should you want to sell your unused hardware. I've done plenty of it with success on Craig's List.
