Best Practices for Protecting and Displaying Collectible Cards | Ultra PRO International

From holographic Charizards to Wayne Gretzky rookie hockey cards, there are tons of collectible trading cards out there. No matter what type of cards you’re filling your binders and boxes with, the condition they’re in matters a lot. Even a tiny dent on that showcase foil can greatly affect its desirability and, ultimately, its monetary value. When it comes to keeping those cards in near mint condition, having the correct protective accessories is important.

One thing a lot of collectors do is have a fresh pack of Ultra PRO Deck Protector® sleeves on hand when opening sealed products like booster packs or collector’s sets. This makes it easy to put any rare or foil goodies into a protective sleeve right away with minimal handling. Putting collectible cards straight “from pack to sleeve” is a great way to keep them close to near mint condition and prevent wear and tear that can accumulate over time as you are turning the pages of your binder or looking through stacks of cards. All Ultra PRO Deck Protector sleeves are made with archival-safe materials that are acid-free, which will ensure your cards’ conditions for years.

Some cards are deserving of an additional layer of protection. When you open a foil planeswalker in your Magic: The Gathering booster pack, Ultra PRO 3” x 4” Toploaders are the perfect safe storage solution. These Toploaders are made of a hard PVC plastic that can be easily stood up in order to display the cards in your collection. They are also great for protecting your cards if you have to take them somewhere for a trade or ship them in the mail. But remember, it’s always important to sleeve your cards before storing in Toploaders!

In the vast world of card collecting, there are some uniquely valuable and coveted cards out there. The Pokémon Mew EX Delta Species, MTG Unlimited Underground Seas, and Patrick Mahomes Relic Game Worn Jersey football inserts of the world are in a class that is entirely their own. For any card collector, items like these are going to be the crown jewels of their collection. High-end cards like this demand the very best in protection. Ultra PRO ONE-TOUCH Magnetic Card Protectors are an awesome solution to meet this need. Ultra PRO even makes a size that is designed for baseball tobacco cards from the early 1900s!

Ultra PRO ONE-TOUCH Displays feature many unique innovations to protect all of your most treasured collectible cards. They come with UV protection so the colors on your card will not fade even after years of being displayed in a well-lit location. They also include Ultra PRO’s Diamond Corners, which are a small space that will sit around the four corners of the card stored within. This prevents the delicate corners of the card from coming into contact with the sides of the protector, making it appropriate even to store cards that you want to get graded. When it comes to protecting your TCG or sports card collection, Ultra PRO has everything you need!
