I just though I would post this here as another board member just asked me about them so figured I would share with everyone.

For anyone looking for graded card bags for tall boy slabs (fits both PSA and SGC) here is a website that sells them and I been very happy with the product. They help prevent any scratching on slabs and are an added protection when mailing slabed cards.

Product Details: Re-sealable Clear Poly Peel Strip Packaging for your Artwork, Matted Frames, Notecards, Document Preservation, Magazines & more! Acid free, archival, museum quality packaging.


I order the size- GBM-B4X9 4 5/8 X 9 3/4 they are .12 each plus postage per 100. They also have another size that can fit them, I think itís a little tighter on the sides but longer top to bottom, I have ordered both. I have been very happy with them.

Thanks for posting! I've been looking for similar to this for a non-card related reason. These should work great.

If anyone is interested in buying 100 of their sleeves that would fit SGC's oversized holders and selling me 10, let me know.

LOL! (With tongue in cheek.)

Let me post this before Frank W. gets to posting. (Just kidding Frank.)


Am I to understand that the current and proper procedure is to now take our cards, put them in a penny sleeve, mail them to a grading company, have the grading company put the card and the sleeve inside a hermetically sealed plastic holder, AND THEN PUT THE ENTIRE HOLDER INTO ANOTHER PLASTIC BAG????


Why not just send the slab out to be graded? Somebody must be grading slabs, aren't they?


No wonder the damn polar ice caps are melting!


:D

Jim - if no one else wants in, I certainly will; then sell the extras to you at 3x what they cost me :) As it is, I've only got about 5 of those oversized holders in my collection so it would be overkill to buy 100.

Jim harps about the polar layer then get's on Matt for not ordering a ton more of this opium-depleting, hazardous material. While helping another with their overstock. Typical tree hugger. Ya just can't win here. :p

This is a "bad" thing? (Ozone depleting maybe?)

I knew I would get one of these post for this thread )

True, I protect my cards in slabs and my slabs with bags, funny but it works for me. Then again I have seen raw collectors put cards in mini sleeves then put the mini sleeves into card savers and even card savers into pocket pages, haha.

OK. You've got me. That's how I have my T206 set and my near set of 1952 Topps. Most of the rest are just sleeves in pocket pages.

Putting the slabbed card in a poly-bag prevents the slab from getting scratched! :)
