BCW Shoe Box House Makes Storing Your Collection Simple

With the 35th National Sports Collectors Convention just on the horizon, collectors are always on the lookout for new ways to store their collection.  My friends over at BCW have created a new Shoe Box House that can hold up to six boxes.  Each box can hold 1,600 cards.  That’s a total number of 9,600 cards in all.

It took a bit longer than I had expected to put the whole thing together, but that’s mostly because the boxes I purchase are already assembled.  The main benefit to the Shoe Box House is that you can stack boxes on top of each other with ease.  You can easily go straight to the box you need and pull it out.  No unstacking needed.  I do think some short instructions would help, especially for those people that may have never assembled something like this before.

BCW offers collectors two ways they can purchase their Shoe Box House.

If you already have the white boxes, BCW sells the house alone.  But if you need the boxes, BCW offers a complete package deal tooBCW even offers houses that store 800-ct boxes.

BCW should hold a contest during the National to see who can put these Shoe Box Houses together the fastest.

FYI – The 100 cards given to former President Bush (White House Issue) have a thick clear coating on the front, and the others do not.

“Pin-Up” of the Week: Philadelphia Phillies 2004 Spring Training Inaugural Season Bright House Field Pin

Photobucket

Spring training is back!!!  It won’t be long until the Phillies have their 2012 home opener.  This week they lost Raul Ibanez to the Yankees.  I wish he wouldn’t have left, because Ibanez was a fan favorite.  Someone else will have to take over his spot in the outfield now.  The Phillies have a few options since I think they were anticipating Ibanez leaving.  Laynce Nix, Scott Podsednik, and even Dominic Brown have a shot at the position.  I think Brown will start the year in Triple-A even though he has made it clear that’s not where he wants to be.

This pin marks the Phillies inaugural spring training season at Bright House Field in Clearwater, FL which opened in 2004.  It can be found for around $10.00.
