I usually sort as I rip, PC cards in one stack, base commons into a storage box, inserts into penny sleeves and into the same box as commons, higher dollar inserts into penny sleeves and top loaders and into a separate box in my safe. PC cards get cataloged and put into binders either on my shelves or in my safe depending on their value.

Cards, ALL CARDS are NEVER touched on the front, I pick all cards up via the sides. You will never get my finger print off of one of my cards. All cards are then set on something soft (ie napkin, opened pack, table cloth, etc). Cards are sleeved if I'm going to keep them. They are soft sleeved and then hard cased or placed in a magnetic holder (without a sleeve). I only need to touch my cards one time and then they are protected. I then touch them any way I wish to get a good look at them. Then stored accordingly to prevent damage.
