Binder Not Big Enough!

Can I ask a stupid question....?

Why do Topps not produce a big enough Match Attax binder to house all the cards they issue in a collection? I don't understand their logic in not adding more than enough pages for the sake of what would surely only be an additional couple of pennies to the production cost.

There are 56 pages (of nine) in my folder, which equals 504 spaces. Yet there are way more than 504 cards if you intend collecting all sets...

Numbered cards = 464
Tactic Cards = 6
Limited Editions = 18
Cult Hero = 16

That would be the binder full, with no room for these cards...

Pro 11 = 32
Pro 11 Insert Codes = 35
Promo Trophy = 1
Error Card = 1

Can I ask what the experienced Match Attax collectors do in this situation? Do you buy additional plastic sleeves and insert them to the back of your binder, or do you buy a bigger plastic binder with more pages (I'm not sure this is even possible)....

Are those 56 pages in total, or 28 which you put cards in both side of?

I have noticed the same thing. It fits all the cards listed in the binder, all LE's and Cult Heroes with not 1 space spare!

My Pro 11 cards will go in a different binder until MA Extra is released, when they will get moved over. Slightly annoyed that the Error and Logo card won't fit in this binder though! Going to slot them in the little holder on the inside of the back page of the binder but still not ideal!

At least the binders are big enough for the 470 or so cards on the checklist.

Unlike the SPFL ones which were not big enough for even that and were two pages too small !!

Seriously?!!!! That's ridiculous :idiot

Surely that's some kind of school-boy error on the part of Topps?

I somehow can't imagine Panini issuing a sticker album with not enough spaces to stick in every sticker!!!

Yep, 18 pages in the binder and it needed 19.4 for all cards :shrug

Topps are aware of it and are replacing them

Are they? I just had a reply to an email re the size of the binder and was simply informed that the binder was designed to hold the base collection as listed within the checklist, therefore LEs and Pro 11s have not been allocated any space!

It isn't very well thought out

And for me, as someone who likes to have a few multiples of the rarer cards, I put them all in UltraPro sleeves and binders like this for 2015-16 season https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=op5pdD8BpWc and then I can add as many pages as I want

If costs about 20 for a binder and 100 sleeves but it presents the cards more nicely and there is no worry about not being able to get everything in
