Packaging baseball cards for trade

Can I call this blog -'Pursuit of 80's(ness)' anymore. My idea was to keep a record of collecting the 1980 Topps set but that has sidelined a bit as the trades start to complete.
This has become a record of trades and little else. I never expected so many cards. I had (have) a stack of cards to sort and go out to people who collect or support specific teams. I will try to list them at a later date, but there are still some teams I am struggling to find a decent home. All credit to the collectors out there no-one has refused a trade.
I have however, a question - 'Is the packaging I use enough?' The cards arriving from the US are packaged so well, people have used toploaders, plastic boxes, package pellets, card, newspaper, which by the way, is very interesting to read. So serious question- 'Am I using too little packaging?'

Your cards have even made it all the way to Texas in fine shape. Keep on calling your blog whatever you like and then feel free to wonder all over the universe in what you post. I'll be sending you a package soon and there will be some 1980 cards in it so you'll be able to ground yourself again.
