Default How do you store your cards?

Show some pics of how you store your cards and locations. I'm outgrowing my security safe and need some new ideas..

I keep my sets in binders. This makes them easy to look at. I use BCW binders with Ultra-Pro Platinum sheets. I also collect Reggie Jackson, Julius Erving, and Terry Bradshaw cards. Most of them are PSA, but a few of the newer Reggie’s are in sleeves/toploaders.

I am about the same as the above...sets in binders with a few PSA/SGC graded slabs in a storage box.

I'm also a set collector that stores them in binders. Where/how do you guys store the binders? Man caves, shelves, safe....l am looking for ideas too as you can only store so much in a safe.

I still have a few things from when I was younger in binders, but on the whole i'm not a set collector and don't really like them, so...

Most of it is pretty inefficient - stacks of toploaders and graded cards in my closet. I have a couple of row boxes with more toploaders and shoeboxes with even more toploaders. It's not near the best way to do it, but for the most part I can tell you where everything is. If I ever get further down the road on some of these "sets" I'm collecting ('56, '61, '72...) I suppose I will have to revisit the idea of binders - although I don't like them.

I buy the binders with slip cases from Archival Methods and stack them. Zero issues.

Almost all of my sets are stored raw in boxes.

I buy the Archival Methods binders too w/ slip covers. They are pricey, but are so worth it. Very nice for sets! I was just curious if you just keep them on a shelf, in a safe, or elsewhere. Some of the sets I've collected are quite expensive. Kind of torn on where to keep them.

They are good products, for sure. I keep mine in a closet dedicated to storing my collection.

Wow, that is a lot of sets. How do you break them down? Do you have a shelf for each decade (50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, etc.). Or do you have each brand on a shelf (i.e. a shelf for Topps, one for Score, one for Bowman). How do you break that down?

I'm leaning towards binders. It's what I had my 58T set in before I sold it. I really liked that because I could grab it off the shelf and flip through it and look at it.
