Collection shelf help

Post by TheLuhks »

I’m looking for ideas on finding a shelf or cabinet for keeping my SWCCG collection.

Ideally, I would want something with enough room for about 8 Ultra Pro binders, empty booster boxes from each set, three or more Anthology boxes, the two 2player boxes, and 12 OTSD boxes (plus maybe as few extras).

Displaying the items would be a lower priority than storing and protecting them.

Any suggestions on where to start?

Austin Ryan posted this on the Star Wars CCG Facebook group. The “Alex” shelf from Ikea. Apparently a good fit for card storage.

There was a thread on this last year that you might find helpful - viewtopic.php?f=2&t=74132&p=1281787

In particular another poster tried another Ikea cabinet, with some DIY foam dividers, and imo it turned out pretty good.

I got an Ikea roller unit. The drawers are deep enough to fit cards and barely fit the dividers I use.

I bought foamboard which I cut with an razor for the dividers. Below those are felt pads, also from Ikea.

I never locked the drawers in so they come out easily for better access.

And of course that thread also has Yodad's custom-built cabinets, which are just wonderful to look at, even though I'd never be able to build one (or afford to commission him) myself.
