Remember those old photo albums that held a bunch of pictures that you could flip like a Rolodex? This is a similar principle, but for your race bibs! They have really great designs - everything from the standard album I have (above) to wall displays to albums that can be personalized with photos to bamboo albums to dry erase albums (to record your PRs on the cover for example). Prices can range - most of the standard albums are about $40 and can go up to about $65 for the wall albums.
When you order one, they send you two of these vinyl sleeves that you can put your bibs in (I put two in each and "double side" my sleeves). Although it's extra (a set of 12 sleeves costs about $8), I would highly recommend you get a bunch more because you're going to want them. Bibs are all different sizes with holes in different places, so unless you want to punch a bunch of holes in your bibs, you'll be much happier with the sleeves. Along with the sleeves, there are other accessories including extender rings (standard rings will hold about 50 sleeves), a metal stand, and an inserts for your race stats and/or reviews.

I did buy the stand (costs about $8) and rather than buy the extender rings, which would have made my BibFOLIO album too large for said stand, I just bought a second album! I have also purchased several of these as gifts and I can tell you that they are a home run. Apparently I'm not the only one who keeps their race bibs! Full disclosure, I was not asked to write this post by Gone for a Run or compensated for it in any way. All views are my own and based on my personal experience with these products, which I think are wonderful. So check them out at www.goneforarun.com.
