Card Sleeves & Cases

Continuing on my newbie questions -
Do you collectors have any preference for Card Sleeves and / or cases to preserve your collection?

    I use the one touch Ultra Pro holders. There are excellent for viewing cards and look real nice and clean. They are pricey but well worth a couple dollars. I use them for my higher end raw cards. Lower end stuff goes in in a penny sleeve and a regular top loader.

    One touches are too bulky for me and card savers are too flimsy. I have always done the penny sleeve and a rigid top loader.

    I use oversized penny sleeve / top loaded where possible. For instance, I will use the Vintage Sized sleeves / top loader for 2.5" x 3.5" cards. I just think the sleeve/top loaders for 2.5" x 3.5" might put a little stress on the corners.

    I also use those UltraPro One Touch - just used the eBay Bucks 13% to pick up a box of 50 for about $50 (considering the eBay Bucks).

    Agree 100%. I use the ultra pro sleeves designed for thicker card stock (35pt?) because they are slightly wider than a standard sleeve but fit in a regular top loader just fine.

    For vintage items I don't use a penny sleeve, just a Card Saver 1 or Card Saver IV as appropriate. For modern I use a penny sleeve, sliced down the right side about 1/2 inch to make it flawless to put the card in with no chance of damage and a Card Saver 1 or Card Saver IV as appropriate. The vast majority are Card Saver 1 size. For Card Saver 1 sets, I place them in a PSA perfect fit sleeve and then into an Ultra Pro 4 pocket page. The page is placed into an Archival Methods binder with slip cover. Sets in progress that aren't far enough along for a binder are stored in a 2 row graded card box.

    I have never been able to figure out how to safely take cards in and out of Card Savers. I use Ultra Pro sleeves, toploaders and one touches.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Good question. Like others, oversized penny sleeve, corner cut off the right side to get card in with no problem and then placed inside card saver 1s. If a thick modern patch card, then inside of a card saver 4.

    Penny sleeve, top loader. Wham, bam, be careful not to cram.

  • I have nothing new to add, other than to say I'm elated that no one here uses 4-screw cases.

    I store my cards in sleeves then they go into boxes.

    Are there any card savers that can hold 5x7 postcards? Not finding any. How would you submit them?

    I have submitted oversized cards in top loaders without issue
