Default Which cards go to sleeves and top loaders?

I am sorting my cards and would like people opinion which cards deserve to be in a sleeve and/or top loader? I am currently putting my rookie, parallels, color border cards in sleeves. Do all your cards get sleeve or not, please need opinions.

I sleeve all of my cards, just a habit. As for top loaders I use them on anything SP or of decent value.

All my PC cards get sleeved & the relic/autos get toploaders. Also if the BV is higher than $8 or the serial number is low they get toploaded as well. There really is no right or wrong way of storing your collection.

depends on your cards. If you have 600+ Topps Series 1 bsae cards, I just throw those in an 800 count with no sleeve. Good rookies get a sleeve at least. Any autos, game used, color refractors, or semi-low (#/500ish or less)serial numbered cards get a toploader for me.

This, plus I sleeve all my chrome to avoid scratches.

I typically don't topload anything, not even cards in my PC. The only time a card gets a toploader is if it's being listed on eBay. Otherwise, RC or prospect autos get a sleeve and go into my RC box, relics go in the relic box, and parallels go in either the RC or vet box, unsleeved.

Do anybody know how to sleeve a 75 mm x 55mm card (e.g. 2012 Topps Mini Cards)?
I have went to a card shop and accidentally bought tobacco sized sleeves&top loaders knowing that they will fit but didn't.

I ship those in standard sleeves and toploaders.

Yep ... I usually fold the penny sleeve over on one side before placing into the top-loader.

Apparently only Superfractors if you are Boomo
