Which BCW Cardboard Boxes are Large Enough for Card Holders or Graded Cards?

Most BCW cardboard boxes are only large enough to hold standard 2½” x 3½” cards or cards in sleeves. However several boxes have wider rows to accommodate cards in protective holders such as semi-rigids, toploaders, 1-screws, magnetics or other holders or cases. Some BCW boxes are designed to hold graded cards or other tall cards. A few boxes have both wide rows and increased height.

If you are trying to decide which BCW boxes are right for your collection, the list below shows the basic sizes. If you store cards in protective holders, you’ll need a box with WIDE rows. If you have graded cards, other tall cards, or you have 4-screw card holders, get a box labelled GRADED.

Note the length of the card boxes are often named by the number of cards they can hold, such as a 930-ct. Box, however these sizes are based on the thickness of a traditional card. Modern cards are often thicker than traditional Topps baseball cards. Learn more

MTG Commander Deck Storage Solutions

Magic: The Gathering Commander Decks, also known as Elder Dragon Highlander (EDH), are comprised of 100 cards in a deck. This format promotes fun, casual games with a low barrier to entry. As there are more cards in these decks, as compared to regular MTG decks, Commander deck storage solutions need to be proportionally larger.

BCW Card Sorting Box with 100 ct. Boxes and Large Deck Cases

The 10 cells in the BCW Card Sorting Box perfectly fit 100 ct. Card Boxes and Large Deck Cases. This method is ideal for organizing a collection of several Commander Decks. Finger holes under each cell in the Sorting Box allow you to push the deck case out of the cell.

BCW Commander Deck Locker LT

In addition to the 100 ct. Boxes and Large Deck Cases pictured in the Sorting Box, BCW offers other deck cases that are large enough to hold Commander decks. The Commander Deck Locker LT has removable trays for the cards and dice. BCW’s Deck Keeper is a clear, friction-fit design. The Tandem Deck Case hinges open with two large compartments.

4-Pocket Pages protecting Pokémon double cards and oversized MTG Commander cards

MTG Commander decks traditionally have oversized Commander cards. Whether you use these in battle, or simply as collectibles, you’ll want to keep these protected as well. If you keep these protected individually, a BCW 3.5″ x 5″ Toploader is a smart choice. If you keep your MTG cards in a 3-ring binder, get BCW 4-Pocket Pages to display your oversized cards. Other 3.5″ x 5″ cards are included in Planechase, Vanguard, and Archenemy MTG formats. The 3.5″ x 5″ toploaders are great for keeping “double cards” together, like the Pokémon Legends shown above.

Protecting X-Wing and Attack Wing Cards

With the growing popularity of Fantasy Flight’s Star Wars X-Wing, Imperial Assault, Armada, and Destiny, BCW has produced several products to help players protect and organize their cards. Many of these products work equally well for WizKids’ Star Trek Attack Wing and similar games.

Register for the April 7-9, 2017, Washington D.C. Stele Open.

BCW Premium Leatherette Gaming Supplies

If you’re looking for a sophisticated method to store and display your trading cards, BCW’s LT Deck Lockers and Z-Folios are the perfect solution. These are designed to protect Magic: The Gathering, Pokémon, and other 2½ x 3½ cards that are loose or in card sleeves.

The outside of these LT Deck Lockers and Z-Folios are made from a premium leatherette (LT). The LT material starts as a deep black, but after several months of use, fades to a worn brown, just like a leather jacket.
