The Perks of Collecting TCG Cards
Showcasing a stunning display of your most treasured trading and gaming cards is probably one of the most euphoric things to experience as an avid and long-time card collector. These well-preserved pieces not just embody their own authentic values and rarities, but also represent your childhood, your youth, and your genuine passion to collect.
As time passes by and your card collection starts to grow in size, it is highly crucial to identify the correct steps to practice that can help maintain your TCG cards’ mint condition, making them last for years to come.
Top 4 Card Protection Accessories
From soft sleeves, to top loader card sleeves, to quality deck boxes, here are the four best card accessories that are built to provide premium protection for your most valued Pokemon, MTG: The Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh, Lorcana, and sports card collections.
Using PVC-free and acid-free inner sleeves like Perfect Fit sleeves are highly beneficial for upkeeping the physical value of your cards. These transparent sleeves are designed to protect your cards from frequent game shuffling, as well as in preventing unwanted card scratches, side-folds, and dust.
You can also upgrade your sleeving game by double-sleeving your cards with a soft sleeve or a matted sleeve. This technique is practiced for an added layer of scratch and liquid-protection. It can also give players a more personalized deck, as double sleeves come in a variety of colors, sizes, and textures.
Top Loader Sleeves
Known for their high quality construction, clear toploader sleeves are more thick and rigid, ensuring top-tier protection of standard-sized cards (2-1/2" x 3-1/2"). They can effectively prevent dust, moisture, and fingerprints from reaching the inner portion of your cards while you play with them or keep them up for display.
Similar to the purpose of using mouse pads, playmats are handy for keeping your gaming cards clean while you play and compete with your friends. They are lightweight, spacious, and offer great anti-slip support against varied surfaces.
What’s more, you can even go beyond and order custom-designed playmats online or through your local shops and make every bit of your gaming experience all the more special.
Deck boxes are compact-sized gaming card compartments primarily used by avid card players who regularly go out and meet with their fellow card gaming enthusiasts for a casual two-player deck game. Most standard deck boxes can house up to 100 double-sleeved cards and are offered in a large variety of exterior finishes, colors, locking mechanisms, and prints.
If you prefer a bigger storage solution for your collection room or the attic, you can opt for high-grade card storage boxes that can hold more than 1000 cards and are either made of clear acrylic, smooth leatherette, or shock-resistant, hard shell casing.
Say goodbye to traditional ring binders and hello to high quality, zipper-locked binders. Unlike the usual store-bought O-ring card binders, ringless binders offer a more secure way of keeping your card collection preserved and well-protected.
Our Patent-pending SHIELD+ Top Loader Binder features premium, acid-free card slots that ensure an archival-grade display of your treasured TCG card collection. You won’t need to pile two cards in the same slot anymore, as this poor habit can cause long-term friction to the back of the cards, damaging their prints.
Another perk of using TCG toploader binders is their professional aesthetic, their large card slot capacity, supplementary inner pockets, and the added layer of environmental protection that they can bring to the table, be it for dust accumulation, sunlight damage, hot humidity, and water spillage.
