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

Organizing your Doomtown Cards… Shootouts, Dudes, and Boot Hill!

PRO9S-Doomtown-1000

BCW 9-pocket sideloading pages are an excellent way to sort and separate you card collection. The colors were chosen such that Magic, Pokemon, and YuGiOh players can easily sort the cards into matching pages. Even if you don’t play these games, the different colors can be employed for sorting the game you do play.

I used 9 different colors and also clear pages to create the sorting separation for my Doomtown: Reloaded Binders. What’s Doomtown? Doomtown is a flavorful card game based in the Weird West, think twisted history mixed with magic, that involves various factions vying for control of a California boomtown. The wild west flavor is further demonstrated with a clever combat system that involves a series of poker hands, and cheating as well is part of the game.

Fixed releases (no randomized booster packs to buy!) and living card style of the game means that I have (at least) four of every card. Unless otherwise used in a deck, all my cards are in binders. This means that most of the cards in my binders are in sets of four, back-to-back. While this makes for some heavy pages, the plastic pages accommodates the weight just fine. When I’m looking for a card, the colored pages and their interior organization makes finding what I’m looking for easy.

BCW Solutions to Store a Huge Collection of Cards

Do you need to store a huge collection of cards? The BCW Card House and Shoe Box House are great solutions.

The Card House holds twelve 800 Boxes (1-piece) or 802 Boxes (2-piece). The Shoe Box House holds six Shoe Boxes.

The Card House holds twelve 800 Boxes (1-piece) or 802 Boxes (2-piece). The Shoe Box House holds six Shoe Boxes.

A full Card House or Shoe Box House can hold about 9,600 traditional sports cards or 13,680 thinner gaming cards. Each of the two rows in a Shoe Box are wider than the single row of a 800 or 802 Box, so a Shoe Box can accommodate card toploaders and other card holders. An entire Shoe House (6 Shoe Boxes) can hold about 2,100 toploaders.

BCW Prize Packs for Card Game Tournaments

BCW wants to support game shops when they manage large Magic: The Gathering, Pokémon or other card game tournaments. BCW will provide prizes for the Top 8 finishers and samples for the judges when the tournament meets these basic criteria:

  2. The tournament must offer a contestant prize pool of $5,000 or more.
  3. The request for prize support must be communicated at least one month before the event (see below).
  4. In advance of the event, the event manager must promote on their social media channels that BCW prize packages will be awarded to the Top 8 finishers, showing a picture of a prize pack.
  5. The prize packs and judge samples will only be shipped to one U.S. commercial address (mainland 48 states).

Each of the Top 8 finishers (main event only) will receive a BCW prize package that includes two packs of BCW Deck Guards and one BCW Deck Locker. BCW reserves the right to alter this prize package when needed, but changes will only be improvements to the package. Official judges at these events will also receive BCW promotional items.
