I've gotten over token-shock, and added several new pieces to my ever-growing Plano hoard. Now my interest/OCD has turned to the problem of cards. If one were to buy every currently-available add-on and expansion for SOB (as one is helpless but to do, see above re: OCD), how many cards will one own? Excluding fan-made content. How many different decks? And can somewhat recommend some midrange sleeves I can buy in bulk?

Without actually counting, I would say 1200+ cards split into 30+ decks.

I went with the Mayday "Almost a Penny" sleeves, and I'm satisfied with those.

1200+ That's one hell of a shuffle.

Is there a sleeve size for the big cards? I know FFG, at least, makes some, but are they the correct dimensions?

If you're referring to the character/enemy record sheets, I laminated them for protection and so I can write on them with dry erase markers.

For XXL monster sheets,The New hero class sheets & depth event sheets I use A4 pocket files and keep them in a ring binder.I also use this file for storing the rule books via magazine holders along with storage of the threat speciality decks in A4 trading card pocket pages ( randomizing by dice throw ).

I use the trading card pages to store the rules reference cards, this makes a handy 2 page reference sheet.

I may change this speciality deck storage in the future as I have found storage boxes for mini decks however they are always O/S and I need to find out if they hold sleeved cards.

For the threat stat cards I use an A5 ring binder, and pocket files.

For not in current use hero stat cards and specialty town location cards I use A5 hard cover display book. I keep these in this separate file as they are not used as regularly.

All my cards are in the cheapest Ultra pro sleeves which work just fine. the only sleeves I have refreshed are the loot/ scavenge decks but then generally they do see the most shuffling.

Hopefully this storage system has enough flexibility to survive contact with KS wave 2.

I would buy two 1,000 sleeve packs of "Trading Card Sleeves - 1000 Ultra Pro Clear Deck Protectors Pokemon MTG Sized" on Amazon, there are expansions you know, and it's cheaper in the long run.

Cool thanks. But what about Monopoly money sleeves?

I use these:

https://www.amazon.com/LaTCG-Pokemon-Gathering-Perfect-Sleev...

They're thicker than penny sleeves (2.5 mils) and at only 1.4 cents apiece they're great from a price/performance perspective. I've used them to sleeve the DC deckbuilder, D&DAS games, Brimstone, Dungeon Command, Last Night on Earth, basically anything they'll fit.

There can be a little variance in length - some of my Brimstone cards come right to the top edge of some of the sleeves - but it's not noticeable and I'm willing to put up with it for the money I'm saving.

$22 for 1600 w/free shipping. That's pretty good. What is the thickness of penny sleeves?

Damn too good to be true, I saw the price, shipping to EU and free shipping, wow.
Then on checkout for Europe it's 60$ shipping lol ...

And if I look for it on Amazon EU it goes to 100$ price with 8$ shipping.

Meh !

I'm not sure, but the LaTCG sleeves are certainly thicker than penny sleeves and they fit better. I once had my entire SoB set in penny sleeves - like you can buy at big box stores near the Pokemon and sports cards - and they were noticeably too large. Penny sleeves would work in a pinch, but only barely.

Based only on my experience, I would put the LaTCG sleeves on par with Mayday but not as nice as FFG's or other premium sleeves.

BCW Supplies (bcwsupplies.com) makes a sleeve (for philatelists) that is almost a perfect fit: BCW 1-EFDCSLV European First Day Cover Sleeves. 5 1/8 in by 7 13/16 in. They're a mere 3.65 $US for 100, but the shipping is atrocious. I'm in Canada.

I'd be ready to split an order with a few other buyers.

Every card game and baseball card store in my town,to my utter vexation, sells only penny sleeves or $5 packs of tinted sleeves. So I ordered some Mayday Almost-a-penny's from a vendor on the electronoBay. 1000 for $16 with shipping. So Ill see how those work out.

As for the larger cards, I now have them all living happily in a pair of binders, in clear page protectors.
