solid and safe
on 28 September 2010
These card holders are perfect for those valuable rare, very rare, and "shiny" cards that you have in your collection.
The Top Loaders are a solid plastic which will fit the average collectable trading card, such as World of Warcraft and Pokemon.
The thick solid plastic means that they cannot be bend so protecting the cards from any curling or bending which can happen by accident when carrying them in a bag.
They fit perfectly in the mesh pockets of the Ultra Pro Deck Box Zippered Album. However, they do not fit in the 9 card A4 pages.
I use Top Loaders when I go to swap meets or tournaments; when I have cards I want to sell, swap or buy. If I am buying a new card from another player/collector then I will put my new card in the Top Loader to keep it safe.
Top Loaders are also very useful for protecting other things you might value, such as smaller photos of loved ones.
I have found that Top Loaders can damage the edge of the cards if you are not careful when you put the card in them.
Max Top Loaders do not have the chemicals in which could damage your cards (or photos). You should always make sure that you don't use plastics with bleaches, acids or alkalis as they can harm your collectables over time.
If you have trading/collectable cards (or other items) you want to keep safe, but don't want to carry/keep them in folders, then these are a great option.
