CARDBOARD REVIEW:3200 Ct. BCW Card Bin

 
A beaten up old two-row shoe box has been what I have been storing my Rodney Hampton collection in for awhile now, which is only the better/rare cards as the rest are in a binder.

It was time for an upgrade and what better upgrade then a new product offered by BCW Supplies.

The BCW 3200 Card Bin is an upgraded version of their monster boxes and instead of being made out of cardboard, it's made out of very durable plastic.

These bins also have dual locks on top so if they were to tip over (and as long as you remember to lock it when you are done) the cards won't spill out of the box and onto the floor. I have experienced this way too much with the cardboard versions. WAY TOO MANY.

Inside there is a lot of space, I thought about hiding in there myself but then there wouldn't have been room for Rodney so I stayed out. The box has four rows and each row comes 

with a partician that is moveable throughout the bin if you have more cards of one player, team or set than another.. You can buy extra particians if you need them on the BCW website or just by clicking HERE.

And here is the final project. Luckily for me since it holds so much it only took half of the bin to store my Rodney Hamptons. The rows are wide enough to hold toploaders, magnetics, and deck boxes. 

The other half of the bin I plan to store my better Eli Manning cards in. Maybe get an Eli bin all alone at some point as these bins are stackable which is really handy for those like me that don't have much room for storage. This is just as handy as the card sorting trays to me so I hope to get a few more of these down the road for a variety of my projects.

You can find your own 3200 Ct. BCW Card Bin by going HERE. I will mention ahead of time that there may be some wait on these from what I see, but get your order in now anyways if this is something that interests you.

  1. I'm sure that I'll be in the minority, but I don't care for these one bit. Looks like they were made solely for the modern collector/investor, they've got all the bells and whistles that those sort like. And that price point? $40? No, thanks! I'll stick to my $3 boxes.

  2. $40 is a little steep for a storage box. But I'd consider using one of these as a temporary "to be sorted" section for my desk if I could pick one of these up for $20.

    As for dumping over a 3,200 or 5k box of cards, I might have done that once in my lifetime... and if I did... I can't even remember it. However tipping over a stack of cards is a completely different story.

  3. Good to know these are out there as options. For as sturdy as it is I don't have an issue with the price. Not sure I need one but if I ever get more space to really get organized who knows. I like how it looks.

  4. While the functionality is quite nice, the price point is just way too much for me.

  5. Spendy for sure, but I do like the flexibility!
