Default Keeping autos safe

So do you all put autos in sleeves immediately to keep them from smearing, then a topper? I see some of these new (well, maybe not new, but back in the day, it was all toppers) magnetic cases or snap cases, but couldn't the ink get messed up? On that same token though, couldn't the ink get messed up sliding the card into a sleeve (which kind of happened to me today)? Thanks.

Sleeve and toploader is typically the way to go, or sleeve and magnetic. Screw downs and Cardsavers are the work of the devil.

I don't see how a sleeve would ruin the auto unless the ink were still wet, which should be impossible. Maybe you accidentally smeared it with a sweaty or wet finger?

How'd your auto get messed up?

For me, I always put it in a sleeve first, then decide whats next. Like tajikey said, don't go screw downs or cardsavers.

The sleeve was too thin for the card, so I stuffed it in. Then again, it may have come that way?
