Nicknamed Bimbo, Binder was a prolific goalscorer who played for SK Rapid Wien. He won the national Austrian championship four times and was three times top goalscorer in Austrian league. In 1941 he also won the German championship with a 4–3 victory against Schalke 04, when he scored three goals. In his whole career he would score 1006 goals in 756 matches. With an average-score of 1.33 goals per match, it would be a world record, so Binder would have been one of few players, scoring more than 1000 goals in his career beside Gerd Müller, Arthur Friedenreich, Josef Bican, Romário and Pelé.
