Default Are Card Sleeves "necessary" with Monster Binders?

Well I actually got back into this game this year and have acquired a lot of high end cards which are decked, and I wanted to take collecting more seriously so for my cards up for trade I am getting a Monster Binder to protect them. I am wondering if it is absolutely necessary to put a card into a sleeve before putting it into the binder? Obviously I can but my main concern is whether there are negatives to just putting a card into the binder.

Well, its worth investing in the sleeves to maintain condition of the card.

Not necessary, but further protects your cards and presents them better as well.

True but my problem is that my locals ran out of penny sleeves and the shipment hasn't arrived so I'm either forced to wait (would rather wait) or buy multiple packs of Ultra-Pro sleeves for the protection. I'd rather have it cheaper and matching then use all my extra sleeves (which isn't enough >.<).
Also the fact that there aren't many close to home locals bugs me...:/.

Has anyone experienced damage or wear just putting them in the binder. A few friends of mine have Monster Binders and have a few cards sleeveless and I see no problem, however on some forum I read the card backs pick up the texture of the pages or something like that? I'm wondering if it would be noticeable or something serious to the cards condition.

You only sleeve cards that are like 3$ above. Something can always get damaged inside of the binder depending on how people handle it, or if it experiences a unlucky time of heavy squishing.

Why not put sleeves on them just in case, you can take them out to use later anyway.

I don't have enough leftover sleeves for my Holos and I don't want to shell out $20+ for card sleeves and would rather pay $3-5.

Such an expensive hobby lol. :3

They're not necessary for a binder, but it helps keep them perfectly straight. Without sleeves, many cards will appear to be crooked, which hurts the presentation. If you have a Wal-Mart, I know they sell deck boxes that come with 50 sleeves in them, you could look into that.

I sleeve everything in my binder. So many people nick them with their fingernails when trying to take them out. (I do it myself from time ti time.)

Sleeves further protects your investment. Most of the time, people claw at the cards to get them out of the pouch which causes damage. Sleeves would prevent this.

if you can afford a monster binder, why not get 2 packs of 50 ultra pro sleeves to give ur holo cards extra protection....oh instead of monster binder, ultra pro introduced their own binders too similar to monster binders and at cheaper price too
