Tips For Storing Trading Cards

If you are a collector of trading cards, you know how valuable they can be. You also know that you want to make sure your collection is organized, easy to access, and intact. In this blog, Affordable Family Storage Ozark provides you with information regarding safe card collection storage. 

Climate Is Key 

Trading cards are made of paper or lightly coated paper and are therefore very sensitive to moisture. Make sure that the storage unit you select offers climate controlled units. This will help to prevent mold or decay that could be caused by storing your cards in a damp environment. 

Protect Your Investment

Make sure that your cards are kept in plastic covers that are acid-free. Do not take the cards out for extended periods of time, especially if the cards are vintage collectibles. Storage boxes are a brilliant idea. You can store thousands of cards in a single box! Make sure not to store your cards in a way that could decrease their value. Do not let them bend or fold. 

Know Your Inventory 

Label all of your boxes and binders with specific information pertaining to their contents. It is also a good idea to keep a ledger where you can record your collections, the number of cards included in each, and the binder name or number that that particular card is contained within.
