Default question on storage

I have some steel pullout filing cabinets i would like to place some of my not used at the moment cards (graphics, sound cards and such) but since the cabinets are metal, would there be a risk of shorting out?

I keep all of my old cards in metal storage using anti static bags and have had no problems with shorting.

There should be ZERO chance of a short.

My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.
