My deck collection is starting to get pretty ridiculous. Random cardboard boxes are kind of bugging me too. Looking around online I found this http://jpplayingcards.co.uk/playing-card......97b36087
and this soon to be released item http://jpplayingcards.co.uk/carbon-effec......rage-box
The 36 and durable brick boxes look good. But vendor is in UK. I'd like to avoid overseas shipping if possible.
Is there anyone in the US that sells same items?
What do you guys use to keep playing cards in?

Mine are currently in a cardboard box. I don't have a huge collection yet (40-50 decks) but eventually I want to do something with them. I'm kind of leaning towards display cases rather than storage boxes. I found this but it's kind of on the expensive side. They have 2 sizes, one for 60 decks and one that holds 24.

I've got a couple of these CD boxes from Wal-Mart for storing live concert recordings. They aren't a perfect fit for cards but they are cheap, sturdy and don't look too bad.

I ended up ordering the boxes mentioned in the original post. These things are actually pretty great. Very sturdy. Holds a total of 39 decks perfectly.
I've seen and like the display cases too, but I'll probably go with a small one, maybe 24 just to show off a select few decks.
I'm actually really looking forward to the "carbon effect" case JP will start selling soon. This looks perfect for travelling.

I found some old cassette tape boxes at a second hand store that packs of cards fit into pretty well, and they're hard plastic for protection.

It's kind of like this but it only cost a quarter: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Alpha-Ca......04830%26

I just went through my collection of card just last week and did an inventory. I never realized just how many invisible decks I had. At the end a cataloged 45 decks and dumped 10 of them to that great card place in the sky

I also found some old wooden cassette holders and they work quite well for display purposes.

I use those white pre-cut boxes that are found in the Sports Card Stores. They are used for holding your collection of baseball, football, etc. "commons" and work for me to store my decks (about 12 to 15 fit snuggly). They are sized to hold 100, 200, 300, and more; they're cheap, strong, and readily available in brick & mortar stores or online purchases. I believe the 200 count box is very similar in shape and size to the old cassette tape clear holders.

Those big plastic draw units that are cheap. One girl on youtube showing her collection used one of these.
