These boxes contain all my NON CANUCKS base, rookie, and insert cards. Higher end cards such as basically all my RC's and inserts are in penny sleeves. As you can see over the years my "Hockey Card" monster boxes have been scribbled on and kinda been reorganized.
The box farthest back contains my oldest hockey cards and each box moving forward gets newer and newer with the closest being full with some fresh 2011-12 cards. I started labelling my boxes "Newest" on my third box and just had to roll with it, so in the sake of improv I just numbered them 1, 2, 3 etc.
The bottom drawer of my dresser gets the privilege of holding my binders and tins. Honestly I'm surprised it hasn't collapse yet with all the weight. It's hard to see from the pic but there are six binders in that drawer.
Four of those six contain all my CANUCKS SKATER cards (that means no goalies). I have everything from base, inserts, and rookies in those binders. All those cards are organized yearly with the top left hand corner of each "new year" page containing the number of season for the pages following. You following me?
The fifth binder on the left side of the picture reads "The Goalie Project" obviously the title speaks for itself. That binder is full of all my CANUCKS GOALIE cards that go toward my goalie project. The top left hand corner of every "new goalie" page reads the name of the goalie for the pages following.
The final binder is part of two base sets that just got completed. I'll show you those some other time.
The seven or so tins in the back are all currently empty but they serve as very helpful emergency storage issues.
This is finally where it get's interesting. These two tins contain all my signed cards, game used cards and really low serialized numbered cards (they're currently not at full capacity as I have some cards on my dresser waiting to be scanned.) Basically this is "la creme de la creme". The tin on the left (the Canucks tin) ironically contains all my NON CANUCKS "hit" cards. The tin on the left (the Superman tin) contains all my CANUCKS "hit" cards.
My problem is that the cards don't get much love stuck in these tins. Plus even though they are all stuck in top loaders, they are still loose and move around in there. So this is my real reason for this post, I need ideas:
- Where do you store/display your "hit" cards?
- Do you like the way I've organized my cards or do have a more effective way that you could suggest?
- How do you store your collection bulk? (Post a pic!)
GO NUCKS GO!
