Hello!

I was wondering if any of you bought the 'official' binders to store your cards in. This is the one I am talking about, the series 1 binder and the similar one for series 2. Do you feel it was worth the money versus going to Staples and spending $6 on insert card protectors and #2 on a binder?

Please list your pros and cons of you have them. Also, I can't find one for series 3. Does anyone know what that is about?

Thank you!

I just received the series one binder.

Pros:
Nice AC graphics
All cards pictured on inside cover
Sturdy glossy cover
Illustrated paper pages between the clear vinyl card pages show character cards

Cons:
A bit larger than I expected but this adds to a solid feel...so guess this is a pro
Only con I have is the above mentioned illustrated pages are of a thin flimsy paper so you need to be careful not to
Tear or wrinkle them when turning pages.
Also, the plastic pages are one sided for the insertion of cards. I would have preferred double sided for extra card storage.

Hi jcmbangor!

Firstly, thank you so much for taking the time to write up such a thorough review! I too love when things have weight/a solid feel to them. It makes them seem more expensive. Haha.

Secondly, do you happen to know of a site that sells them for less or is Amazon already the cheapest? If so, I might just resort to eBay and hope I win.

Thanks again!

You are very welcome.  The only place I really looked was Amazon. I like bundling there for free shipping. It is a pricey item for sure. I don't plan on collecting any cards past series one so I splurged on this one binder. The US released folio really sounded  
Cheap and flimsy.
Good luck with the search and please let us know what you turn up.

Hiya forgottenpixel!

I have all 3 binders! I love them versus just going and getting a regular binder and the page protectors!

Pros:
I love having "official merchandise"
Makes it look extremely complete
I love the pictures of the cards on the pages
I love having them sit all together on the shelf. (Easy to choose which binder I want too)
I didn't feel it was too expensive for the quality.
I ended up purchasing them on amazon UK, you still get the free pack of cards! Except the 3rd album which I ended up getting on eBay for $20 bucks with free shipping!
Also the pictures are on the inside of the binder, so if I wanna use the Amiibo for the game it's really easy to find which character I want.
Plus all the trouble you go to collecting the whole set, you might as well spend the little extra to display it!
Cons:
I find it kinda annoying about how the pages are set up. Other than that, that's all I find annoying sometimes. LOL.

Thanks so much jcmbangor! I think I'll hold off for now. I am completing all the sets so it is a little too rich for my blood right now. I hope they will go down in price a tad but I think they'll just get more expensive instead. That seems to be the AC trend with products. lol

Thanks amylase! So many great points. Now I am tempted again!
