    How do you store...

    Wondering how everyone else stores there collection. I currently store my PC collection in a 5000 Count box in penny sleeves and a toploader. I am looking for another way possibly to store my collection so its easier to look at when I want to. If you have pictures of your collection and how you store it that would be awesome. Thanks

    In binders, with the cards in 9-pocket pages. Less handling involved, and makes it easier to look at the cards.

    That's how I do mine. All organized by year. But for all my PC GU's and AUTOs, I have them in penny sleeves & top loaders and all in a Topps 'cube' jumbo box. They could go in 9 pocket pages but it would be a tight squeeze for the thick GUs and the AUTOs would smear.

    Storing them in a binder y'all aren't worried about the 3 ring bending the edges once you get so many in there?

    You have to put so many oages in each one so there is room for the pages not to bend

    what size 3 ring binder do most use and roughly how many pages do you put in that size?

    I use toploaders and penny sleeves for my PC autos/GUs and the like, but one insight I can offer is to put the card upside down into the penny sleeve, and then right side up in the top loader, so the bottom of the penny sleeve is pointing up in the toploader, preventing even more dust and the like from getting in. Sometimes it's a little tricky because the sleeve will bunch up as you slide it into the top loader, but once it's in, it works great

    No; right now, I have about 500-600 cards per full binder. The trick is to not get a super huge binder, where the pages bend. 2-3" binders seem to work fine for me. I've had my '74 Topps set (580 cards at the moment) in a binder for close to 20 years, with no issues.
