Practical solutions for storing loose booster packs

Post by l0qii » Thu Jul 16, 2015 7:53 pm

Hi all,

I'm looking for recommendations on boxes or retail display cases for storing booster packs that allow for easy access and identification of what's inside. This is not for archiving a collection, but rather managing my ever growing vault of open boxes. Something stackable would be ideal, but anything is better than what I'm using now, which is nothing.

Thanks. I remember you posting these, but none of your pics show loose booster packs. I assume they would fit well inside the box that holds a booster box? Which size container is that? I have looked in local stores for this brand, but nobody here seems to carry it, so I will probably order one and see how it works.

Hi Alexis,

I did look at that list, but the ones that exist in my area don't carry this brand on their shelves. There are many competing brands for containers like this and not every store stocks the same brands, similar to how Target stores in my area never carry Magic card blister packs with the promo foil in them, but in other parts of the Country they do. So far I have not seen Sistema containers in any stores.

About 39 standing up on their long sides in the 2 litre box http://sistemaplastics.com/products/kli ... ectangular

A bit of space at the ends of the boosters, fits Japanese boosters or an extra three boosters at the end.

You can get 44 in this one (two layers of 22 each) no wasted space at all. 2.35litre / 79.46oz http://sistemaplastics.com/products/kli ... cookie-tub.

Catalogue: http://sistemaplastics.com/assets/files ... LowRes.pdf

Last page has USA and other countries' addresses.

They do three packs of the 2 litre boxes, http://sistemaplastics.com/products/kli ... three-pack

Depending on how much they cost it might get expensive but they are ok on special.

Wouldn't work for Japanese Boosters but I like the look of these, just not sure where they got them from.

Don't necessarily need the hanger part of the packet but a sticker with the booster info would cover that up.
