I was thinking about Index card boxes ( for storing them)!

Strange as it may seem... Velveeta boxes are the perfect size. Also, as a bonus, when you show them off, you can say "these are mine, these are nacho LTCs"

They fit nicely in baseball card sleeves and storage boxes. I buy the at a local comic book shop.

and the nice thing about the individual sleeves is this: once you have participated in a swap or two, you should rarely ever have to buy sleeves again. Put the LTCs you receive in baseball card pages, then into a three-ring binder, and reuse the sleeves. OK, yes, once in a while one is messed up in some way, but many of them can be reused.

I second the Velveeta box suggestion. There is nothing better, cheaper, or as stylish!

Hobby Lobby sells the sleeves in an area near art supplies with collector display supplies and are reasonable with the 40% off coupon. Target and Walmart have trading card supplies as well.

I get them from Hobby Lobby and I use collector card binders for storing them which I also get from Hobby Lobby.

I wondered, because I started following you yesterday(?) and today my feed was flooded with pictures. Good to know that you were just catching up and not actually turning out cards by the dozens in a day! ;-)
