Storage of boosters, boxes etc

Hi all.

I have with great interest read the threads regarding storage of stickers, albums etc. But I still need some tips for my collection:

1)
I have been offered to buy an uncut sheet of trading cards from a trading card series that I collect. This is a must have for my collection, but since the price is high (what should a fair price be for an uncut sheet?) I am a bit worried about how I am going to store this. I have considered framing it, but I am a bit worried about the cards fading. Should this be a worry, and/or do you guys have another good solution?

2)
I already have a unopened display box from the same collection. How do I store this in the best manner?

3)
My collection also include a number of unopened boosters. Any good ideas to store these?

How’s it going when it comes to the UNCUT sheet you could probably frame it temporarily until you find something that’s good for long term preservation. Also what’s the size of the uncut sheet? This information could probably help for any recommendations. I want to say if you decide to frame it and hang it on the wall. I wouldn’t recommend it due to sunlight which effects Stickers and cause color discoloration.

Question 3. Unopened boosters do you mean sealed packets? If so cards or stickers

Thanks for the answer.

The sheet is 71 cm x 97 cm

Regarding question 3. Yes it's sealed packs and mainly cards.

The size for the uncut sheet is a bit difficult those dimensions are unique. The only thing I could recommend is contacting Ultra-Pro or BCW Supples and see if they can recommend anything for those dimensions. Sorry can’t be much of a help it’s a bit tricky whatever you find take pictures and share!

Card packets a lot of people have shared different suggestions like what I like to use it’s something called Team-Bags. They work for me,but I rather be able to stick the packet in a 2 ring binder kinda hard to find pocket sleeves for my sealed stickers.

I feel that companies need to start getting better on protection! I’m still waiting for Mylar
