Toploaders

Post by ItsOnlyGil on Sun Dec 23, 2007 3:12 pm

These items fall into two major types:
The less rigid ones with a tabbed back, and
the more rigid ones, without a tab.

I prefer the more rigid ones because I find it easier to get cards in and out of them,
and I think that they offer increased protection.

However, I have no idea which type of plastic poses greater risk to the card.
I do not use the mylar sleeves, because I only use toploaders for card transport, not storage.\

What do you think?

I prefer the really rigid ones without a tab for shipping, but like the less rigid ones for my own collection. I actually have a harder time getting cards in and out of the tabless holders. The tabless holders, I always make sure I use a penny sleeve. I've damaged too many cards trying to get them into those things. The other reason I liked the tabbed ones is that if I want to put a sticker with some info on it, I can place it on the tab and it won't obscure any of the card.

Yes, Quan. I believe they are talking top loader and tabless as the same. I never ship a card in a Card saver unless it has rigid support, I try to use toploaders with penny sleeves for shipping when possible.

Before I started having all of my cards graded in my collection, I always used the penny sleeves, inside the top-loaders, then I would put that into a team bag and seal it. It was the best protection I could find for a card other than an SGC holder. Plus, the team bag kept the top loader from being scratched.

Now I simply have my cards graded and put those into grading card sealed sleeves, so the slabs don't get scratched. This even got me some nice feedback on eBay from a couple of members (they really loved the fact that the SGC/PSA holders were crystal clear and not scratched on the cards they won).
