Hello
   What is the recommended way to store and display wackys ( I guess my old shoe box is not a good option anymore } do you prefer the plastic sheets like for baseball cards or the plastic boxes and are there any links to who the forum likes to buy from or supports.
Thanks Jerry

Personally Jerry, I prefer to store my keeper collection in penny sleeves and top loaders. A lot of my extras I will store in the 9 pocket pages in a D-ring binder. I buy my supplies online at The 2 Buds. Here's a link to their home page:http://www.the2buds.com/

Hi Jerry.  I store all of my Wacky's in top loader clear plastic boxes, using either 100 or 150 capacity boxes depending on how many extras I have for a given set.  I just feel they are more protected inside the hard plastic boxes, and I can easily access them if need be.  Gauranteed I can't see the entire collection at once, but for me it's more about keeping them safe.  :D  If you're interested in buying them you can usually find them at any local gaming store for around $1 for the 100 capacity box and $1.50 for the 150 capacity box, so it won't cost much to protect your entire collection.

I store mine in the 9-pocket sheets in binders, but some collectors pooh-pooh that.

I store mine in 9-pocket sheets as well. I take care of my cards but I don't view them as investments, they're just for enjoyment.

Same here... I've just found it the easiest way to be able to look at them when I want.

Thanks for the suggestions. I ended up doing a little of both.
Take care

A Faraday cage for your trading cards!  Why didn't I think of that?

I was trying to think of a way to chemically etch the wacky packages logo into the aluminum on the front.
