Don’t Forget To Use Your UniKeep Coupon Card!

If you’re anything like me—and I suspect that, if you’re reading this, you are—then you’re at the very least somewhat cautious with your collection of cards. Some of us are downright overprotective of our PC. The ability to safely store single cards into a penny sleeve, toploader or one-touch has been standard for years and years. However, set collectors have few options. You can either stuff them into a box and rarely ever see them again without having to flip and rifle through card by card, or you can protect them in 9-pocket poly pages placed into 3-ring binders. The latter is my preferred method of storing sets, however there are limitations to even the best of standard 3-ring binders.

One of the limitations of standard binders lies within the standard design of a typical binder. When you think of a binder, you think of something that flips open just like a book. That means that every side of the binder aside from the spine is completely exposed. What should happen if you accidentally store your binder upside down? You may end up with cards falling out of their pages and becoming damaged. What should happen if your binder is accidentally knocked off of its shelf? Pages and cards may go flying in all directions causing irreparable damage to your prized cardboard collection.

Another limitation of standard binders comes with the typical metal hinge rings. Many of them snap together but never really lock in place. Ever notice a little gap between the rings? This can cause pages to become loose and can potentially scratch pages and, worse still, the cards within those pages.

These limitations are addressed by UniKeep with their outstanding case binders. They are completely enclosed and snap shut to keep what’s inside the binder INSIDE THE BINDER. Not only that, the case helps protect my valuable cards from dirt and moisture—something a fully exposed standard 3-ring binder has no chance of doing. The rings themselves snap together tightly and lock together. That helps to ensure that your pages will stay put and that the rings themselves won’t come out of alignment with each other.

The first one that I purchased was one of their 0.5″ clear overlay case binders. I used it to store my personal collection of autographed Twins rookie and prospect cards. My collection has grown over time and I have since upgraded to the 1″ version of the same case.

As you can see, my collection is well protected and those cards aren’t going anywhere! I could drop that binder on the ground and throw it around the house and not worry about the condition of the cards contained within. I can stand the binder up on a shelf, or I can make use of its flat surface and stack multiple binders together. There is no other binder I would even think about using to protect my collection.

UniKeep is now offering case binders made specifically for trading card collectors. Their “Sports Card Collection” kit binder includes a large 1.5″ black case binder with outer snap locks and comes preloaded with 10 poly pages which can hold up to 18 standard cards back-to-back per page. The binder is quite roomy and can fit quite a few pages—perfect for those collecting full sets!

As you can see, not only does the binder itself look impressive, the cards look amazing inside of it! Just imagine having a full set of Allen & Ginter’s or maybe your favorite team sets sitting safely inside one of these trading card case binders. Not only would they be protected better than they would be in any other standard 3-ring binder, they’d look flat out awesome in it, too!

    What is the maximum these binders can hold? I have an assortment from of rookies, probably about 1,500, mainly base Topps, with some thicker stock cards like Chrome, Inception, etc. I love the concept, but as long as I don’t have to separate a bunch of sets.
