I've managed to accumulate over 50 different Man Utd Premier Gold cards since starting my collection just over a month ago - and am interested in hearing how you guys who have quite a number of cards and parallels store and display your cards.
Mine are currently held in a Match Attax 9-pocket sleeve, which works really well (and looks good) because there are nine Base cards. I then have a page for each colour variation. However, as the value of the card increases (especially the #/25 Blacks and #/11 Oranges) - I understand the reluctance to put them in these kind of binders.
Does a card have to surpass a certain value before you put it in a decent storage case? I have ordered some Ultra-Pro one-touch 35pt holders, which I'll probably use for the cards that are rarer - but I'm not sure if I should house each of the various parallel versions in these. To be honest, it's not the cost of doing this that concerns me - it's more the thought of ending up with 100+ one-touch holders, and how you would then house these.
I intend to use the magnetic 100pt holders for the thicker memorabilia cards as these are too thick to sit in the binder my other cards are currently in - so I need another method of holding / displaying these regardless.
I'd love to hear from to you guys who have numerous Premier Gold cards. What do you guys use for storage / displaying? For those of you who have managed to collect a full set of parallels for a particular card - do you display this differently in some kind of picture frame, or are you quite happy to hide your valuable cards away in a box?
I just bought some of these small SAS hardback folders for my Premier Gold Collection. I only got them yesterday and haven't had time to transfer the cards into these yet but the hard back covers should offer more protection than the softback Match Attax type folders.
