This is a cry for help in a sense. I have to find a better way of organizing and showcasing my collection.
What I've been doing is keeping Markakis and Jones cards in a separate box (middle box in the photo below), All other Orioles cards in penny sleeves, in the box on the right, and all other "hits"/trade bait in the wooden box on the left.
Below is the table, that sits above the boxes we just spoke about. As you can see by the random stacks of cards on the table, I am out of penny sleeves, and room in the Orioles box.
Does anyone have any suggestions for organizing/storing my Orioles collection? I know there's the binder route, which I am considering. My only issue with it is that something seems so childish about storing cards in a binder. I think the main reason for my saying that, is that's how I stored my cards as a kid, and the simple fact that I haven't looked at a binder since 7th grade. This is 2009, I was hoping there would be a better way. Ideally, I'd like to keep my Markakis and Jones collections in a separate box or boxes. Then there's the growing Oriole Hall of Famer collection I've got going. That shouldn't be trapped in a binder, those are cards for the world to see! Is there any real way to "showcase" your collection, instead of confining it to binders and boxes?
Lastly we have my random boxes of commons. One of these (I don't even know which one) holds the 2008 Allen & Ginter set I just completed. That I think, will definitely go in a binder. I really have no idea what's in the rest of these boxes. They must be the cards I cast aside after busting a box, or pack.
HELP ME! Does anyone have a storage/organization system that works well for them? I've got to take back my living room... and soon!
