Just trying to take a bit of a survey here, I suppose. I try to keep my cards organized and one of those ways has been with my hard cases, like top-loaders. When I began collecting, way back when, I set the standard as being anything with a $2 Beckett value went in a top-loader. Of course, this was back when there weren't a whole lot of cards at that point, so $2 was kind of a big value point. Nowadays, though, you get 2 such cards in every Topps base pack, and more in your higher-end products. Also, Beckett's subscription prices are RIDICULOUS for their on-line price guide, and I just can't afford to keep up to date with it.
My question is, for those of you who keep certain singles in top loaders or other hard cases, what is the standard you use to determine what goes in? Value? Player collections? Cards you just like? It's nice to use Beckett just to have a ballpark on what a card is worth, but I don't like having to use it to, in a way, organize my collection. Maybe I'm in too deep to it already. Let me know what you think.
