I do exactly the same, I use ultra pro silver page because they are thinner than others.

Looks like the product shown by Macone is THE perfect product, doesn't it ?

What do you think ?

For me, the solution is in the binder itself

This is the best for dust, light, pollution and the cards don't fall out of the binder.

They are for WoW cards, but Ultra Pro could make the same kind of binder.

I have bought tons of them for my WoW collection. They are perfect.

They are the same size. The pages used are Ultra Pro Silver 9 Pocket pages.

Being a currency collector Id make 100% sure that your sleeves and pages are 100000000% PVC as well as SOLVENT FREE. Don't trust their word for it (I know Ultra Pro stuff all says PVC/Solvent Free) some how get it tested. Since you intend to entomb your collection you do not want any stuff from the plastic leeching and destroying your cards.

True.

But I would trust a US company like Ultra Pro to tell the truth.

The risk they would take would be too huge, and I think someone has already tested their pages before. If you had the idea to do it, loadsapeople thought about it too. Including probably competitors.

@magic-belgium
Where can I find these binders here in Europe? I tried to find them via google but failed due to the huge amount of hits from warcraft:( Or are there no shops in Europe which sell those amazing binders?

You could get them from wholesalers when they were unstocking them because they were so badly distributed, no one was selling them due to VERY bad distributed when released.

They were sold this summer (9,90 €uros) at French speaking newsagents along with a magazine. So maybe you could find some there.

I can look if my wholesaler still has some. I bought tons when they were on sale, but since I am collecting WoW TCG in all languages as well, I use a lot of them...

The leaflet says 30 double-filled 9 pocket pages.

I agree with this. That is 540 cards. If you have a big collection, you'll need a lot. But the binders look amazing on a shelf.

Those binders were only available in the US when they were released (made in the US), so I think you should find some in local stores. I could see one in mine when I played the pre-releases this week-end.

There was only one design. It was released for the release of the first Raid Deck (Onyxia's Raid Deck, nothing equivalent for MTG).

They did not release anymore after that, though there have been many Raid Decks released in the meantime.

It is indeed compact.

I will gladly help you locate more (I'm actually already searching), if needed.

If you should continue to use 3-ring binders I recommend the Ultra-Pro or equivalent "D" ring binders as they help a little bit to avoid ring grove disasters. With them I have used the booklets included in the Fat Packs. They also protect somewhat against ring groves. Though you have to turn them upside down to put them on the bottm two rings where damage is most likely to happen.
