I was wondering how most collectors of souvenir cards store and care for their collections.  Is there a mylar-D sleeve/holder large enough for various size cards?  Do you store them in albums or an acid free box used.  Is there something similar to what is used for stocks, bonds, or comic books; if so where do you purchase them?

I display mine in Mylar sleeves (8+1/2 by 11) in a 3 ring binder stored in archival safe cardboard box. Envelopes stored separately. Good luck.

Also use 6 ring album for storage and display. Here’s a few photos.

I am probably not the poster child of storage albums. Back in the 1980s and '90s I bought a number of oversized albums that I could use for souvenir cards, stocks, bonds, and what not. I knew enough to get non-reactive plastic sleeves with acid free paper. They have the screw-in posts for adding more sleeves when needed, although I don't think anyone makes them anymore. I've kept these for years and they've worked fairly well, but they aren't as elegant a solution as Mike's binders.

White Ace, which is mostly a stamp supply company, created special albums for souvenir cards in the early 1970s, with custom pages. They may still put these out, but the pages were fairly pricey, imho. They currently use clear plastic sleeves to affix to the pages, but in the early years they came with corner mounts. Do NOT use these to hold cards. They create uneven toning in the corners and can lead to tearing. Much better to have the card completely in a sleeve.

Here's an example of a card that was kept in a sheet protector. You can see where the three ring holes exposed the card to light. Don't make this mistake.
