After six years I'm finally going to auction off my collection of Magic cards on eBay.

What is the best way to mail trading cards so they don't get jostled too badly?

here's what I did...
I just sold off a bunch of cards (dual lands mostly) and I used CD mailers from Staples. They were quite stiff, with slight padding inside. I sleeved the cards then put them in the mailer with a CD for extra protection/reinforcement. For the really valuable batches (4 dual lands) I would put two CD's in with the cards sandwiched by them. It worked great.

When I've mailed stuff like this, I've used regular manila envelopes, but I put the cards in baggies and sandwich & tape them between two pieces of corrugated cardboard for reinforcement. I've only done this a few times, but no one ever said that the cards didn't make it safely.

if you're mailing singles use top-loaders

I'm talking about mailing a whole bunch. Somewhere in the order of 500 cards at a time.
