I'm thinking of buying a couple cases of sleeves in the future and after looking at the different kinds of sleeves, I'm thinking of buying a case of the Premium for my PC cards and a case of the regulars for trading/selling. However, the Premium sleeves are $80 more a case than the regular. I want to compare and contrast (feel, fit, visibility, etc.) the two kinds of sleeves before I make my purchase. I've emailed the seller and asked if they'll mail me a sample of each so that I can do so. But I wanted to get your feedback.
All I know is I will not be going with Wal-Mart sleeves ever again. BCW is alright, but I prefer Ultra Pro. Thanks.

If you like everything to be nice, clean, and consistent then the premium is the way to go. But $80 more IMO is too much for that, but some peoples OCD gets the best of them

I prefer binders for my collections, but there are a few cards I'd love to display out in singles. What's sort of the best practice? Penny sleeve inside a semi-solid toploader then inside a team bag? Or just a nice screw down? What about these magnetic or snap together deals? So many choices!
Oh, and on my binder deals, one card per pocket? I use them a lot for sorting, so I end up putting my duplicates all in one pocket. I'm sure this is just a preference thing, but experience/advice helps in this sort of thing.
