Post subject: How I store my collection
Reply with quote

Iím very lucky in that the integral garage had already been converted into an office when we bought the house, so I laid claim to this room for the computer and the collection.

There are 5 bookcases in the room, and Iíve spent hundreds of hours organising and logging everything. I can now get to anything I want with relative ease Ė no more scrambling through boxes!

I bought 3 cheap bookcases from Argos for around £50 each, but they have been pretty good and the shelves are sturdy enough to hold the weight of the modern stuff thatís on them. They were also cheap enough to take a DIY risk on - I cut one down so it would fit in the gap on the back wall next to the other two!

Iím York City daft, and have collected City programmes since 1976, branching out into team sheets, tickets, and badges over the years. I also collect Manchester United European H&A and their current season from 2005. As an aside, I also obtain league ground first/last programmes and books (as Iím a bit of a ground hopper and a 92 club member), and the excellent United We Stand fanzine.

The majority of programmes are held in club binders that Iíve bought a few hundred of in total over the years from various sources. Iíve just bought a batch from ďProgramme BindersĒ and they are excellent as each one holds a full set of modern homes or aways in 2 pockets, one per side of the spine. Highly recommended, especially as Matt who runs the business seems like a top bloke.

The programmes are stored within the binders in envelopes, maybe 3 or 4 programmes per envelope. I then use a sticky label on the front of the envelope to list the contents. I've now started bagging some of the older issues.

Bigger items are held in box files which Iíve run up spine labels for on the PC. Within those boxes, the items tend to be held in plastic wallets.

The City first XI and reserve team sheets are stored in presentation binders which can be bought from Wilkinsons for around £1.30 for a 40 wallet binder (holds 80 team sheets). Again, Iíve knocked up some spines for these on the PC, and some sheets to separate the seasons.

The presentation binders are also great for storing match tickets. Just put a tiny dab of pritt on the back of the ticket, and stick onto an A4 sheet and slide into place - the plastic wallets will then hold them in place. I stiffen the wallets with A4 cardboard at the front, middle, and back pages Ė this helps keep the binders upright. I have dozens of York City scrapbooks etc but these are in the loft

Iíve managed to sell on most of my other stuff over the years, so the majority of my collection is in one place. If it was all over the house I donít think the collection would have survived as long!

Everything is logged in an excel spreadsheet Ė thanks to fellow Forum member Russ Hoban for providing the workbook to start with which Iíve since tweaked a bit. I also have a paper copy of this on the bookcase.

I keep saying Iím going to cut back.............................

My god do you want to sort out my stock ?

Thinking about if I paid or took as much care over my stock I don't think I would make any profit when sold.

respect !

Nice pics Minsterman.
I've only just come across your thread and yet it was a few months ago since you bought the binders from me!

Always happy to hear of a satisfied customer!

Since you bought the binders from me I have now extended the colour range to 7 (black, claret, green, red, royal blue, sky blue & yellow) and hopefully in the next few months I should be getting some A4 binders in stock.
If only I had the time to sort out my own programme collection..... Confused

I've had Hearts fans buy claret and they were more than happy!

I could send you a sample?
If you are happy with it I'll invoice you. In the unlikely event that you aren't happy send it back to me.
All you have to do is ask.

I wish I was as organised and methodical as the owners of the collections in these photos.
Looks terrific Smile
Are these binders the answer as to how to store a season's worth of modern-day programmes?
My Derby issues are literally stacked up wherever i can find the space. Be that on top of wardrobes, under beds, wherever.

The two pictured are superbly done. Mine are all over the place I have them catalogued on my computer but the physical load i'm finding hard to cope with. All of them are in carrier bags and boxes. and some are in my living room. I really have to get organized, this is my sixth month as a collector, I have over 500 Rangers and about 400 others. I don't know how i'd cope just now with some of your massive collections,any tips would be welcome.I have maybe 150 coming on Saturday and another 60 the following week, but I love it, stops me eating too much as well. Laughing
