Similar post came up last week, copypasta below for my reply there. If you want to collect on a budget, just by singles. Cracking packs to fill sets will always get diminishing returns and end up costing more.

>I decided to start collecting with Steam Siege and Generations. Figuring out the best way to keep stuff was daunting at first. After going through all of TCC's videos and lurking in this and the collection sub, this is the system I settled on:

>-Each Set gets its own 1" binder. Be sure to use a D-ring style so the pages sit evenly on top of each other. I like these from Office Max/Depot because they open and close easily and have a pin-hole style of lock so it ensures alignment of the rings and minimizes catching pages.

>--In the inside pocket of the cover, I put the Trainer's Guide from the ETB of the set, fits nicely in the larger of the 2 pockets. Make sure you don't put anything in the back cover's pockets, as that could make an uneven surface for your cards to rest on if you leave the binders on their sides.

>--Then, each binder starts with a 4-pocket binder sheet to store one of each booster art for the set.

>--After the booster page, I organize the cards by set number, starting with the core set followed by the parallel set. I use Ultra pro's 18 pocket side loading card pages for storing the cards. Pretty much hands down the best. I prefer the black backing and only want to put 1 card in each pocket. Nice fit, though I noticed some scratches/imperfections in clarity on the batch I got. Not a big deal for me, as they are still very durable, but may be for others.

>---Basic cards go into a KMC perfect fit sleeve upside-down and then into the binder page. Good protection, tight fit, not too much cost. KMC's are pretty universally accepted as the best. As some have said, too tight a fit could damage a card, too loose and it wont fit for double sleeving. I've never had a KMC perfect fit that was too tight, maybe a little loose, but never tight that it could cause damage. Looser ones I just put to the side for storing non-foil cards and not for double sleeving.

>---Any foil card (Holos, parallels, URs, SRs, etc.) go into a KMC perfect fit upside down, and then into a black KMC Hyper Mat before going into the binder. I usually double sleeve a stack of cards and then put them into a tight deck box or under a stack of books for a week or so to squeeze out all the air before putting them into the binder.

>-Any extra cards then get stored in the ETB for the set they are from. Organize them however you like, but I keep one section for a playset of up to 4 of each card, and any copies above that go into a second 'trash/trade' section. Eventually I may put the playsets of 4 cards into penny sleeves just to keep things sorted more easily, but I don't have too much surplus yet to warrant it. Again, I always keep things ordered by set number.

>--Here, any extra foil cards will get sleeved. Right now I am just using Ultra Pro's deck protectors since I ran out of perfect fits, but really don't like how they have the stippled surface on the inside of the sleeve as well. I can feel it scratching the edges/back of the card each time I sleeve one. Particularly valuable rares or holos may get double sleeved for better protection, but still get stored in the box.

>-For actual play, I would stick to KMC hyper mats. Good shuffle feel, and last longer than the Ultra Pro's. I played a game with a buddy with my deck sleeved in the Ultra pro's and loved the shuffle feel, but the sleeves just break too easily if you catch a corner. Also they aren't opaque, KMC's are definitely the better looking.

Okay, those perfect fits sound great, I may order some soon.

And wow, the pic and vid are really appreciated! That's very helpful! Do you know anything about Ultra Pro Platinum Pages? I use binder pages as opposed to pre-made card books. From the pic on Amazon, it looks like the back of the page might be opaque, and thus I wouldn't be able to put a card facing the other way to utilize the back side of the page.

Here's the link to that:

I just like to use both sides of the binder page, as it uses half the pages in the end, and looks better to use both sides (in my opinion). I feel like it would be odd for them to make the back opaque, unless there were separate slots on the other side. It would seem like a waste of material.

Anything you know is helpful!

u/petey1214 · 1 pointr/pkmntcgcollections

I use these and LOVE em for my best, most valuable, treasured cards. And yes, I put a perfect fit sleeve over it first.

Congrats on the cards!

u/PK_Thor · 5 pointsr/pkmntcgcollections

Amazon is probably your best bet. These are the best card sheets available in my opinion, but it's unnecessary for, say, individual sets or master sets; I mostly use them for my binder of rare and valuable cards. These are probably the second best option and are good for any type of card, otherwise the regular ones found at Walmart and Target are fine; the only thing is they tend to sag at the bottom if the binder is standing vertically but it doesn't damage or affect the cards at all.

For binders, I haven't played around with too many different kinds, but I am very satisfied with the Avery brand. Here's the specific kind I use.

u/Hydrox6 · 2 pointsr/pkmntcgcollections

The formats are always {set} onwards. Any set released after the given set, including the given set, is legal in that format. The current standard format, for example, is Primal Clash onwards.

Something worth noting is, as Bulbapedia says, a set is only legal after 3 fridays of release in the US. This doesn't mean you can't play the cards you get, it just means you can't use them in official events (though I'd make sure that whoever you're against is okay with you using the new cards first).

The format usually changes late August/early September, and while Expanded is still Black & White onwards, Standard is always a much smaller card pool, to allow variety and newer cards. Sets usually stick around for 2 years (ish).

Either way, have fun with collecting. There's no better feeling than pulling an amazing card. I highly recommend double sleeve-ing your most valuable/favourite cards (a perfect fit upside-down, then a regular sleeve over the top), as this will protect them from liquids pretty well.

u/Jaythe2nd630 · 2 pointsr/pkmntcgcollections

I use KMC perfect size and standard size hyper matte. But if you’re going with the kmc standard size, make sure you get the new ones (link below), cause I read their previous ones weren’t the best but they’re fixed now.

Perfect size
KMC 100 Card Barrier PERFECT SIZE (10 packs/Total 1000)

Standard size
KMC Full Size Hyper Matte Sleeves (80-Pack), Black, Standard Size, Fits MtG, Weiss, Pokemon

u/nebulusx · 1 pointr/pkmntcgcollections

Yes the foam is inside. I didn't do a super good job at cutting it though, but it was my first time trying. I just took a long bread knife and cut out the squares. its hard to keep the knife at a perfect 90 degree angle. A laser cutter would be awesome. You can buy new foam on amazon too. These are two good case options for cheap.

u/Spencerdrr · 5 pointsr/pkmntcgcollections

Here's the link on Amazon!

It's pretty pricey at around 60 bucks, but the UV protection, ease of use, and pleasant aesthetic make it a totally worthwhile purchace if you would wanna do something similar!

u/abaloneyhasnoname · 1 pointr/pkmntcgcollections

While you may not be pricing the cards, using the pricing guide on is a good place to start organizing specific sets. It can also give you a general market value for all conditions as you are organizing. If you see the market value on a specific card is much higher than others in the set, you should consider protecting that one with penny and hard sleeves(or depending on the card, perhaps more than that). If you are going to store your cards in binders, i recommend these sleeves for inside sleeves and these sleeves for the outside soft sleeve prior to putting in a binder like this or like this.

u/Charizard9000 · 3 pointsr/pkmntcgcollections

its honestly very hard to say

on one hand, no one really knows how much of this set pokemon inc plans on printing, they could chose to under-stock it for its lifespan to keep the value of the cards high

on the other hand, like i said above you can look at hidden fates as if they plan on doing the same pattern as Shining Legends and Dragon Majesty. If you look at the Dragon Majesty Ultra Box, its still available, and its currently selling at 75% of its retail price from a year ago

u/trampolinesex · 2 pointsr/pkmntcgcollections

I organize my cards this way:

THIS for for bulk (holds about 5000 cards, which is great because I produce wayy too much bulk).

2 FOUR 12-pocket portfolios, one for current format, and another for past format cards

Then, for each set, I use an Avery .5-inch binder. I collect the master set + additional card, and every card gets sleeved.

Finally, PSA graded stuff goes into its separate container, with some of my favorites framed up.

Also, the only useful piece of advice in this post: store your cards with dessicants or keep a dehumidifier

u/dontdrinkandderive · 1 pointr/pkmntcgcollections

really....? i have these kinds that i use for all my rares/holos/full arts... ALSO, i recently ordered these yesterday because i heard their were perfect for the Rares:

Should i switch to the KMC Perfect fits when they arrive and avoid the Ultra Pro sleeves then?

Ultra Pro Deck Builder's Premium Binder

Some people dont like Ultra Pro and prefer other companies. This one is one of my personal favorites. Cover feels solid and I appreciate the zipper around it.

u/StolemynameAgain · 1 pointr/pkmntcgcollections

The 4-card pages may be a good option. Something like these.

u/Veetor · 2 pointsr/pkmntcgcollections

This is what I'm looking at getting at the mo. The main downside is that you get sent 3 colours randomly and they're all a bit bright haha.

u/IcedKappaccino · 1 pointr/pkmntcgcollections

What you can do as an alternative to the official toploader binder is buy pages with roughly 3" x 4" pockets like these. Binder size would be a bit smaller though at 6" x 8" since the pages are smaller than your typical 9 pocket normal card pages. I've tried these and toploaders fit snugly and securely. Ultra pro has binder pages at more normal dimensions of roughly 8x11 but the pockets may not be as snug.

u/Hunterx1034 · 1 pointr/pkmntcgcollections

Those are the plastic bags or whatever you'd like to call them. I think the ones in the videos are a bigger size though.

This is the video on Instagram that you can see where I saw someone wrap the booster pack.

u/mongerty · 3 pointsr/pkmntcgcollections

We use the big 5 row boxes:
They work rather well. If you are in a moist environment, I would also suggest storing them in an airtight Rubbermaid container.

u/wantonviolins · 1 pointr/pkmntcgcollections

Well, I use these and fill in the gaps with deck boxes and similarly sized/shaped objects so cards don't fall over or move around too much.
Edit: Oh, and I have about ten of these boxes. I really ought to finish sorting and sell off a lot of my bulk. Nobody needs 32+ copies of Fossil Grimer.

u/zunaidahmed · 1 pointr/pkmntcgcollections

Condition 1 #075 Black Airtight/Watertight Protective Case with Pick N Pluck Foam

I use these, they are stronger and harder to scratch than the metal ones. I do think I have a sizable PSA collection by now, already have 2 of these but a bunch of my cards are not fitting anymore, just ordered a new case yesterday. Will arrive tomorrow.

u/CLMF · 2 pointsr/pkmntcgcollections

team bags for toploaders

You can probably find them for cheaper at your local game store.

And the size for the PSA ones are different.

u/groov3time · 3 pointsr/pkmntcgcollections

These are the One Touch Ultra Pro. I was looking for hard cases to keep/display these cards in, but disliked the look of the screw cases. These utilize a magnet on the top.
