    What is a good album for plastic sheets?

    I've tried just getting mine from Target and just can't get a good quality one. The rings never seem to line up perfectly and pages catch.

    I literally have the same problem. The 3 inch I bought from there is junk. Whatís the point if the rings separate?

    I read somewhere bcw is more durable than ultra pro, so I just picked some up to move my sheets over.

    On the rare occasion I use binders, I use Unikeep plastic clamshells. They stack well, keep dust out, and the rings are molded directly into the back lid, meaning zero chance at pinching.

    The biggest I'm finding on Amazon is 1.5 inch, does that sound right? I kinda like big albums

    Unfortunately yes, I don't use them for larger sets, but I know some folks will break sets up, by series when applicable, and use multiple binders; that's personally not my style though. They're great for smaller issues though; I do '90s insert sets and Star Card sets in them.

    It will cost a bit more than a regular binder but Bindertek has some real good quality stuff. They also sell the slip covers separately so you can lay them down and stack them if you want.
    I've bought from them several times and have always gotten great stuff. Unless pricing has changed I think the last order I had was two 3" binders and the covers came to about $50 with shipping. Like I said not cheap, but they are nice. They also will send coupons/specials fairly frequently after your first order.

    I went to Target and felt up their binders. You can rub your finger over each of the three rings and get an idea if the rings are going to catch the sheets. Very rarely did any binder have a smooth connection for all three rings. I bought one 3-inch binder, but it wasn't perfect. I'll have to see how it does. That's the thing with any of there where you can't see the binder first. Maybe I'll check in at my LCS.

    Blowout cards. I get baseball writing on it, black or blue folders they have always done well for me.

    Avery Heavy Duty 3 inch binders are on sale on Amazon if anyone is interested. They are the one-touch kind, though. Seems like that would be more likely to have problems.
