Hey all!

I may be posting this in the wrong forum, but I couldn't find anywhere else that made more sense to put it...

I'm looking for fairly cheap (no more than $10-15 a pop) card game trays that I can use for all of my card-happy ameritrashy games. I've got beasts like Arkham Horror so I need something that can hold lots of decks. I'm looking for solutions that are for the 'standard' card sizes as well as minis.

Ultimately, I'm looking at purchasing a nice set of card trays that I can use for all of my games. This way I don't mind spending a little extra (I assume this'll end up being around $60-80 to have enough trays) as I know that once I have them I can use them for all my games.

So... my google-fu has failed me. Can anyone make some recommendations of retailers who have something along these lines?

I found these AWESOME card trays (http://www.amazon.com/Black-Board-Card-Feeder-Talisman/dp/B0... + http://www.amazon.com/-Raptor-Feeder-Mu-vol-1-Boardgame/dp/B...), but they're super-expensive and I'd need a lot of them to hold something like Arkham so they're unfortunately outside of my price range. They are exactly what I'm looking for though :/

Thoughts?

Either of these is available on Amazon for ~$9 each. You could go with card shoes:

Business Card holders https://www.amazon.co.uk/Eight-Pocket-Landscape-Business-Hol.... I use them for all the cards except the Mythos Deck and Gate Deck when I'm playing Arkham Horror or Eldritch Horror. (I assume you're looking for a solution to table space issues during play and not a storage solution.)

+1 thumbsup for these. We put all our Arkham/Eldritch cards in these. We also use these to store our Arkham cards. We have two curio cabinets and just put all the holders in the very bottom shelf, which is not conducive to displaying knic-knacs anyway. When we want to play Arkham we just pull them out and everything is ready to go, except the shuffling that is

Edit: You can get the 8-pocket holders at Staples for around $7:

There is also this card tray which I stumbled across in the Firefly forum. It's within your budget, but the shipping will take it over:
