Default Baseball Card Binders

I'm wondering how many people use binders with the pocket pages for their cards. I know they were more popular in the past, but I'm curious how many people pull out a binder when they are showing off their cards these days. And I'm not talking about a binder from 30 yrs ago in the basement or garage, I mean binders with pages that are currently being used.

I put my lower grade sets in binders...I love them for display purposes, but they make me nervous with high $$$ cards.

I keep all my player collections in binders. Still find myself doing the card pocket shuffle if I didn't leave enough space for a new card. Everything else is sorted into monster boxes to sell.

I am going to a show this week and am going to experiment with picking up some four pockets to keep big cards in two pieces in the binder. Set in question is my 1967 topps. Certainly Mantle/Brooks/Seaver/Carew are obvious choices, but actually pretty much all the highs are expensive and stubborn to find.

Default Binders

I kept all my cards in binders for years. Most were 1959- 90's on up. They weren't handled, just stored. I found over time the 70's cards corners broke down.
I finally took them out put them in sleeves in top loaders. I had probably
14 Brett and Yount rookies that wouldn't grade over a 7. Made me sick.
Newer cards may hold up better, but my older cards didn't. Don't know if
its the part of the country but I took all my cards out of binders and tossed them.

I'm kinda torn here. Originally I had wanted to keep my sets in binders instead of just the boxes they are now in. I like being able to page through and look at them. I talked myself out of it though, based on what just seemed to me to be an inadequate way to store them. After seeing the picture posted above of all those nicely organized and uniform sets.... Man, I sure would love to do that.
It's a good thing I'm both busy and lazy I guess. Beautiful picture by the way.

How did you have them stored? Never heard of cards getting broke down by just sitting in binders. Makes me a little scared! I have 1953-1979 Topps sets in binders and 1950-1955 Bowman as well.

I use Unikeep binders for my sets and team sets. They are nice and keep dust and light off the cards since they completely close up.
