Binders and pages here too. Don't care about the style of binders. I have some that were made for cards, the vast majority I get from thrift and they are just old corporate binders. Pages, also don't care what brand or anything, as long as they are top-loading style. Side loaders I hate.

Everything goes into binders except for completed sets.

Any answer to how binder pagers can break down corners of a card?

I am considering putting a few sets into binders and the comments made were both interesting and concerning.

Also, any good recommendations for a binder/album? Ideally I would like to have one of those binders that fits into another box .... like a cover. Does that make sense?

It makes sense to me. Having binders stand up properly is an issue, they tend to move one way or the other. I don't know of a way to stop them from doing that, except to lay them down instead. Being inside of a box, I'm not sure it will make a real difference. Smaller binders seem to work better than larger ones.

I use Archival Methods binders with slipcase for dust protection. Not cheap (over $50 ea), but they hold up well. I also use their page lifters (a handful per binder) to add some stability.

http://www.archivalmethods.com/produ...-slip-case-set


I store a good portion (50%?) of my collection raw in binders (rest is maybe 40% in raw stacks or top loaders and 10% graded). OJs, tobacco, candy, 1920s, 30s, tickets, postcards, supplements, post-war, everything.

Good luck!

When I decide to collect a set, I research the number of cards involved. The base set, inserts, sp's, errors, advert cards etc. etc. I then go buy 9-pocket sheets to cover the number of cards involved. I put the sheets into binder/s.

The base set I leave blank and fill in the cards in their designated pockets as I get them. The inserts etc. I identify either individually or as a group with either a card-size piece of paper with the ID on it, which I slide into the pocket, or a label i stick on the surface of the pocket.

Then I collect the set through trades and purchases. I know the complete set because of the binder/s. I don't need to go and research the set again because everything is labelled/ID'd. When I receive cards I open the binder, find the appropriate pockets and slide the cards in after they are put in penny-sleeves. I can then, if I wish, flip through the pages and see which cards I'm still missing.

It gives me a sense of accomplishment seeing binders fill up which I don't get if I just put them in order in monster boxes.

As for parallels of the sets, I wait until I have collected a large number of them before I go buy pocket pages and another binder for them, usually once I get around 50% of the cards involved.

This I find the most enjoyable way to collect. As you move forward in time, sets start to expand in size, where you will need multiple binders to cover all the cards. My 1985 Topps set I can fit into one large binder, or two average-sized binders. My 2007 Topps set, which I am still collecting, Has 5 or 6 binders involved so far.

All doubles, triples of cards go into monster boxes for trade.

I think if you have the money, pocket sheets aren't cheap, although putting every card in a top-loader instead would be expensive as well, is the best way to collect. You get to see the cards as you want, you see how the set becomes completed as you put cards in their pockets, and Putting binders on shelves rather than having stacks of monster boxes is much easier in terms of adding cards or finding where cards go.

I would say page flipping. I bought some 1950's sets in albums a few years ago and the 54 Bowman set had really suffered from flipping thru over the years. The cards slide up and the corners get damaged. The owner of these cards was a strong handed flipper. Many of the cards in the top corners of the pages had surface creases from grabbing the page to flip it. That included a 1954 Bowman Ted Williams that ended up a PSA 2 instead of a 5 or better. No albums for me.

I need to get some of those 3 pocket pages. It would work out well for ticket stubs.

I am a team & player collector and have almost 40 binders filled with Yankees, Jets, Knicks, Islanders and some of my favorite players. I also just started a Baseball Hall Of Fame Binder. I love binders. I am still putting together binders for various sets. I have boxes upon boxes I need go through and organize and put into binders.

I find that binders are pretty expensive, so I have been picking up office binders, but still use the Ultra Pro/BCW 9 pocket pages to protect my cards. I have seen a product where it's like a penny sleeve, but encloses the whole cards and then you slide the card into the pocket. I need to find out the name of that product and get a bunch for my cards.

I love binders and will always used them for my card collection.

Mike

I agree with Rob on the archival binders in slipcases. My wife made a great point, she asked why I would put a set that books for several grand in a $10.00 binder? It hit home pretty quick.
