The people who get into such hobbies usually do so because of a childhood love of the game or of certain players. They start to collect certain items that remind them of those teams or players or maybe that represent special times in the teams history or that of the child themselves. There are always different reasons. For everyone.
No matter what decision is made on where and how to store them it can effect the value of the collection. Some of the collections that people have are just wonderful. If you are into sports collectibles or you are just a huge baseball fan, getting the chance to look through a full set or something that someone has put together over decades is just a treat.
Some of the things that certain collectors have put together over the years can just shock someone. The cards from back in the 1900's or even the 1950's or 60's are amazing to actually look at. The differences in how they were made is astonishing. To see specimens like that which are still in near perfect shape is unbelievable.
This is when they put the things away in cases and in boxes. In order to keep these things safe from damage or from the environment. So many collectors have lost a ton of things worth who knows how much in simple basement flood. All because they neglected to think that something bad could happen to them and their collections.
All it takes is for them to see that happen to someone else or themselves just once and they vow to never let it happen again, or to them. After this point they really take their hobby seriously and they invest in ways to protect and safeguard their things. Plastic sheets and cases start to replace cardboard boxes.
For the collectors who have spent a large portion of their lives doing this they would be completely crazy to let something happen to the things that are worth so much in their lives. That is why they will do whatever they can to protect the value of their stores. The condition dictates the value and it would be stupid to allow the condition to deteriorate.
It does not matter what the reasons are, all that matters is that you keep your collection safe and in good condition. This is why baseball card cases were invented in the first place. A spot to not only protect them but to also still allow viewing of the most important and then the most valuable of cards in the persons collection.
