In my post earlier I mentioned putting together the lower grade '58 set. I plan on storing this in a binder since it will be collector grade. At 494 cards, would a 2 inch binder be about right?

Yes, a 2-inch binder would definitely work.

Thanks, Ed. I figured 3 inch would be too big.

And in the hole is 1978 Topps. My mom threw away my 2000+ cards from packs so I'll be starting from near zero. Any tips for the most fun way to collect a set like this? It's cheap enough to buy all at once--at least in the raw VG-EX condition I go for--but that doesn't seem fun.

The most fun way to put together a set is to trade. Trade with other set collectors and pick up lots at a time for cards off of your tradelist. You can always buy nice lots that come around. This has worked well for me doing sets 20 years older.

Congrats! Nice cards. Those high #s (rookies and Twins cards) can be tough to find centered. Any plans for your next project?
