Unikeep clamshell binders. I put raw cards in either mylar card sleeves or card saver 1s, then into pages, and into these 1.5" clamshell binders by Unikeep. The binders are 100% polypropylene and stand up on their own in a straight line with very little shelf space wasted. My T-sized cards go into mylars made for 1951 Bowman cards from tcverify then into nine-pocket pages. Larger cards go into 4 or 2 pocket pages. Photos and premiums into single-pocket pages.

A bit pricey but very strong quality. I like this: www.baseballcardbinders.com
I keep my cards in ultra pro heavy gauge sleeves, then in the ultra pro sheets and then in these binders.

I have slabs in shoeboxes and stacks of toploaders in a closet. I could probably stand to get a bit more organized, but it's never been a huge priority. I am not a fan of albums in general, just because of how many of them I had as a kid - and it seemed they always got messy and were a hassle. I am doing a '72 set in card savers and toploaders, which is probably insane.

Right now my storage for my (still small) HOF collection is a bunch of toploaders in a box. It's very unsatisfying in that basically my interaction with them is limited to opening the package from eBay, saying "nice, that's a cool card" (or occasionally "dammit, it has a crease that was hidden"), and putting it in the box. I want to get more enjoyment out of them.

I don't think binders are the way to go for me, though - I have memories from when I was a kid of trying to put a card in a sheet pocket maybe a little too quickly at the wrong angle and creasing it across the entire front.

I've tried a number of approaches. I now mostly use storage boxes. I like the BCW Graded Shoe Box best https://www.bcwsupplies.com/graded-card-shoe-box because it allows me to have a mix of toploaders, one touch holders and graded slabs in the same box.

I also used the BCW Super Vault Boxes but I need a 2 or 3 of them to store a full set. https://www.bcwsupplies.com/super-va...ds-storage-box

Because I couldn't find dividers that were tall enough for graded cards, I created my own by cutting BCW Comic Book dividers to size.

I have a few sets in albums (with UltraPro 9 pocket pages). I've also tried the ToploaderBinder binders here https://toploaderbinder.com/ They allow you to store Toploaders in a binder but they're not cheap and the size of the binders is just too big.

For Coins (Topps, Salada, etc) I used coin flips stored in these boxes https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0000EK50O/

For larger items (e.g. Redman, R316, Ticket Stubs, etc). I'm using larger toploaders in this: https://www.reallyusefulstorageboxes...ox-c2x12352367

I've come to prefer toploaders in boxes rather than binders. It's really easy to pick up a box and look at the cards whenever I want. I really like the nostalgia of binders, but I worry that I'm going to damage the cards as I turn the pages.

Default 52 Topps cards

My 52's are stored in this, except my Mantle, Mays and Robinson that are stored in my safety deposit box.

The rest of my cards are currently in shoeboxes and some of the cards I have that I have owned since my youth are in binder sleeves and in binders.

Yeah, I came across that one too, but was put off by the price. There's gotta be a better solution, I tell you!

When I got back into collecting over a year ago all of my cards were in Rubbermaid totes under the bed. They had been stored like that for 25 years. I saw the baseball card binder website and loved the concept of finally having all of my sets in binders so I could look through them. I thought the cost was kind of high for a binder and a couple of prints so I set out to make my own. I also wanted the use actual wrapper or box artwork and not art inspired by them like those are. So far I have art all the way back to 1970 created but it has taken some time to get them in binders. I'm using the Ultra Pro sheets. I'm making them up for my modern sets as well as my vintage sets. I'm using heavy duty D ring binders with vinyl windows from Target that cost 8 bucks and the prints are a buck each on light cardstock. I created all the artwork for the prints using wrapper photos off the internet. Shown are a few completed binders and the shelf I'm currently using in my toy room for them. Once I get more filled I'll switch to a bigger shelf I've made for more binders. Picked up a few clear easels to display my favorite cards on the top shelf.

Ummm...are we supposed to just ignore the serpent on the floor?? Guess it's better than a guard dog.

It's either a serpent, or someone was very excited to see the Red Heart Mantle.

I was going to ask if the snake was real, fake, or trimmed.

Just seen these on a face book hockey site. Seem pricey (at least up here) but they are supposed to be water proof?
Remove the foam, cut it to accommodate your cards and be done. Might look into these when they go on sale? The OP said he purchased his not long ago at 50% off.

THAT IS AWESOME! Would you be interested in selling some of those inserts? That is really the coolest binder idea I have seen!
