Hello all ... long time reader and first time poster ... just recently purchased a complete 52/53 set ... yep all 105 cards ... probably paid too much but I wanted the set, grades a G to Ex so nothing too great but nice to have the complete set to start with ... two are graded by KSA but I plan to pop the containers ... so what is the best storage for them, I am of the type that likes to browse periodically ... binders, boxes?? Suggestions ...
Longer term I plan to very slowly upgrade the cards as good opportunities come up but I am not purchasing for investment just for pleasure.
Thanks ... I was thinking binders as well ... currently looking at 53/54 to complement the 52/53 ... again a G - EX mix of cards, mostly G/VG but a great starting point ... Most of my existing collection has been HOF cut Baseball signitures so "real" cards will be a change ..

Personally, I use boxes only for very cheap sets where the cost of the binders would be about the same as the set. Any high dollar cards would go into top loaders. It does make it difficult to see and enjoy them with any frequency. Moreover, the oils, dirt and God-knows-what-else-that-is-on-your-hands would touch them every time. With a vintage set where even low to mid-grade cards would still be worth more than binders, I think they're an excellent idea. I'm sure you already know to make sure the pages fit your size of cards. Go for acid-free pages if at all possible.
