So i HAD my cards in numerical order like in the national pokedex, tho for some strange reason, i decided to flip my binder of cards over and dump out every last one… tore off all the lables which took HOURS literally, and started arranging them in the order of the set they are from. Not sure why. But i swear by the time im done i will be a genious about all the set names. Because when i started, i only understood the base set, which we all kno isnt labled any certain way.
Here is the front & back of my binder, Which i desined and made myself
Just to let you know from experience… If you organize by set, it’ll take you about 10 of 3" ring binders. I organized mine by Era… (ie 1 binder = original era, another neo era, another e-reader era, 2 binders for old ex era, 1 for d&p, 1 for Platinum, 1 for hgss, 2 for bw)
Years ago (80s and 90s) I made my binders custom too by cutting up the boxes the packs came in and neatly placing pieces all around the binder that contained that set. I still have hundred of those sets in those binders:)
Now I’m not artistic like you (I can’t hand draw a bit) but it took a little imagination and they display well from every angle.
Like everyone here knows…I don’t use binders for pokemon, at least not very often and never for expensive cards, but those old non sports sets seem fine in them.
well i dont have but just a couple hundred cards, i just finished up organizing them and its only in one 2 inch binder which is sad, this isnt even a third of what my collection use to be. but i was stupid a couple years back selling stacks of 100 for 1.50 USD to some shop. and now i really regret doing that. i sold about 1000 or so doin that… probably way more
