I was using the net runner box, but it's not going to be enough anymore. Any good suggestions knowing my cards are all sleeved in FFG sleeves?

Step 1: Unsleeve cards you're not actively using in decks.
Step 2: Get a plain white card box from local game store. Or online, if you don't have any. They're cheap and plentiful.

I don't sleeve all my cards, but unsleeving doesn't make much sense considering they're already all sleeved

Snack sized ziplock bags fit cards pretty well unsleeved. One baggie per category (so for example, all shaper programs). Makes stacking them inside the original netrunner box really easy for me, keeps them flat and protected, and I can pull an entire baggie out at any time and know I'm holding all my Jinteki ice, or Weyland agendas, or criminal events.

As stated by others, I only keep sleeves on what I'm actually playing with, and then those cards go in dedicated deck boxes I can toss in my bag.

I just bought an insert from The Broken Token that lets me continue to use the Netrunner box for all my cards (and which I'm really pleased with). I actually use the unsleeved card insert (since I don't sleeve cards until they're in a deck), but they also have a sleeved card version as well (http://www.thebrokentoken.com/sleeved-card-game-organizer/).

surprise

You guys need to stop eating the silica packets. This isn't some epic dungeon crawler with hundreds of tokens and dozens of minis. It's a card game. Storing card games is a solved problem. The same stuff that works for Magic et. al. works for ANR, too.

I also sleeve with FFG sleeves and have been using these Stanley storage boxes.



I have 3 fully sleeved cores and all expansions stored in 2 of these (1 for Corp / 1 for Runner) with room to spare.

Of course, I carry my decks in a smaller deck box for most get-togethers, but this is my permanent storage solution and I can carry with me for out of town events and/or if I need to do some deckbuilding.

NOTE: I purchased these from Lowes a few years ago when NR first came out so not sure if they still sell this design.

I use the standard white card boxes found at most game stores that carry magic cards. I use the 4 row ones, and then use toploaders with printed inserts as dividers. I will take pictures if there is any interest.

(Printed inserts via Nan-Deck)

A perennial question. I used to keep all of mine sleeved, but the sleeves wear on high-use cards, and sleeves greatly increase the storage space required. So now I only sleeve actual decks, and I use the original boxes for storage:



This was pre-O&C. Post O&C I use separate core set boxes for runner and corp. Works great and looks great.

If you store cards unsleeved like that in a box, is there any risk of damage over time? Like rubbing against each other, etc.?

If you don't have the rows filled and you change the orientation of the box a lot (e.g. transporting it horizontally, storing it vertically), there's a possibility that some cards might get rotated so they're not flush and then get bent by the weight of the rest of the cards pressing down on them.

Other than that, no. No risk of damage. Just make sure to put some filler in the rows.

I had this happen to one of my IDs early on. Thankfully, they're good cards so it straightened itself back out with a week or so without any intervention by me and now I can't tell which card it even was.
