    That's a question you could get 20 different answers from 20 different people. When I decided how to do mine, the first question I asked myself was how often the cards were going to be shown/accessed/pulled out/discussed with friends. If you get my drift.
    Here's what I do:
    My personal collection stuff that has no chance of ever being traded or moved.......penny sleeved~toploaded~team bagged. This all goes in a toploader vault box.
    Stuff I don't mind trading or moving:
    Penny sleeve everything.......higher values get toploaded, lesser cardhoalders. More for organizing than anything else. This all in monster boxes.

    Chances are you will find you're own methods but paged in a binder is fine too. If you're going to be trading it's a pain to pull and refill the spots though.

    Thanks man. I'm wanting to trade alot of my stuff for my team cards past and present but where I live I don't have many options. So I'm really looking for somewhere to trade or sale some of the ones I have to get the ones I want. But thanks again for letting me know and bear with me on here cause I'm new to this and having a heck of a time figuring out what I'm doing....lol

    One more question can you put scotch tape across the top of the sleeves of the binders to keep them from moving around

    Welcome to SCF! And I've never thought about that. I'm sure it would work if you leave a little excess tape and then pinch in down so the sticky portion of the tape doesn't come in contact with the tops of the cards at the top of these binder pages.

    Welcome to SCF and enjoy your stay here on the site. I agree with baystate123 and you could use tape at the top of the sleeves but I use soft sleeve when I put them in the 9 pocket sheet!

    how are you storing your binders? Are you laying them down or are you standing them up etc.. I would be cautious on the scotch tape as if the card somehow came in contact with the scotch tape it might not be a pretty site.

    Welcome to SCF! I agree you can get many different answers. For me, I keep my personal collection of Giants in binders so I can flip through and admire them every so often. The cards I plan to trade are kept seperated by team in the boxes you can get from your local card shop or also I have this container that stacks with drawers and I have them seperated by team in there. Of course higher end cards are sleeved and toploaded and kept in the boxes.

    Meh....don't tape. Risky, aesthetically unsound and if you want the card out or moved or traded then it's a pain in the ™™™. If the cards in your folder (not a folder fan) are staying forever in your PC then penny sleeve them before putting them in. They'll stay snug and you can more easily slip them out if you change your mind.
