Default Best Binder Sets

I have gone back and forth between binders and sleeves/toploaders for my sets over the past few years. I have landed (I think) on binders. I look at my sets quite often and love the ease and convenience of binders. IMO, some sets look better than others in binders and I began thinking about which set is the best looking binder set. I am a 70s guy so I will start the discussion by nominating the 1975 Set. In addition to the great front colors, the orientation and color combo on the backs make them easier to read. I would like to read other opinions, including sets from other decades.

There is something about my '58 set that makes me pull it off the shelf and flip thru it more than any other set I have. Part of it is the fact that the first page has Ted Williams AND Willie Mays but mostly it's the colors and the memories of these cards, the first ones I remember seeing as a kid.

Thanks for starting this great thread! I went through the same dilemma as the OP and only recently have come down on the side of binders and love my choice. I truly feel like it was the missing ingredient in my collecting. In addition to the wonderful sets nominated, I will put forward 1976 Topps. I have always loved that set! 1953 Topps as well, though it currently isn't in a binder.

Default Binders

My sets are 1960s-1975 and the only ones I actually look at are the ones in binders. Neat just to flip through the pages for a "stroll through the past." I make a copy of the actual graded card and put that in the proper spot.

Another vote for 1975 Topps baseball. Such radical colors!

I'm putting together a 1957 set in a binder and love it!

Great to see Mantle, Williams, Clemete, Aaron, Koufax, etc in pages right next to Turk Lown, Jim Garcia and Bill Tuttle!

Any graded cards I've bought for the set I've cracked right out and put into the binder...was able to get some of the "bigger" cards for LESS in graded condition than raw...

Sounds like a great project! Good luck! What is your limit for what you will crack? 4? 5? Just curious.

I would rate the 72 set as a close 2nd. The colors and psychedelic design make for a great look in a binder.
