Hi everybody,
Marinerpete here. I have the time now to talk a little about my collection which I started collecting in 2010. I have a wardrobe in my house devoted to my collection. As you see from the photos you can see it consists of grey boxes, green folders and brown boxes.
Grey boxes : These are my World Cup albums. Each one is empty, in mint condition and different variations for each year. For each World Cup I have one album (UK edition) where I have stuck the stickers in so they are meticulously placed. Each album is placed in a protective plastic wallet to protect it.
Green Folders : This is where I store my collection of packets and extra stickers for each of the Euro and World cup collections. These are all mounted and placed in plastic envelopes. There are also sets of rare stickers which you can see.
Brown boxes : These are my Euro Cup albums. Each one is empty, in mint condition and different variations for each year. For each Euro Cup I have one album (UK edition) where I have stuck the stickers in so they are meticulously placed. Each album is placed in a protective plastic wallet to protect it.
I also have a full set of the Super Mondiale books and I have also collected the Road to albums and packets.
Finally I have a box which has all the unusual packets and tins.
If you want to see what albums and packets I have see the Variations files on the World Cup and Euro cup sections of this website. I am proud of my collection. I am going to stop after next years 2021 Euro as this would mark 50 years and give me a chance to obtain maybe some of my missing items.
Thanks for watching.
Pete

Nice to see that every collector has his own storage ideas.

Just a small remark. Your sealed packs, sheets, extra stickers, ... are properly stored in sleeves and a white paper with some info is added. The info is good, but aren't you missing the backside view of all those items? I see that all is shown very straight, how do you do that? Please don't tell me you are sticking those items on that paper. But I can't image that someone with such a great collection will do that. Or do you use some transparent photo corners? Let me say I'm curious how you can show it so straight.

I suppose you are using the MultiMaster sleeves? How's your experience with the 4-ring binders? I'm asking you this because I have the feeling my MultiMaster pages are sometimes getting stuck when turning the pages, while the Italian MasterPhil sleeves does not have that problem. It seems the gaps of my multmaster pages are very close against the rings of the binder. Or I still haven't found yet the correct binder.

Hi there
Thanks for the interest in my collection.
First of all you are right I can’t see the backside of the items but I have hi def scans (See guides on cardzreview) of all my items which I store on my computer so to me it is not essential. I use transparent photo corners to stick onto a predefined black border. Certainly not stuck down.
Thirdly I don’t know the names of the pocket sleeves but I cut the card to fit the pocket and it just shows them off, in my opinion, very
nicely. I have been really pleased with the four ring binder but I store them sideways so that the weight of the pages doesn’t start to damage the holes of the plastic pages if that makes sense.
