I think it would kind of blow if they make it next to impossible to break the card out. I've popped many 5,6, & 7's for my personal collection with no intention to ever sell.

It will stack compatibly with the current holders, but will look slightly different- the edges are much squarer, much like Becketts.

They also announced a new video game using cards that will be available as an app or on the registry. Reaction to that at my table ranked it pretty deep on the lame scale.

They did give out the new Cracker Jack book to everyone there, along with a loupe courtesy of Love of the Game auctions. And the food wasn't bad.
Thanks for the insight. The description on CU's forum was a little tough to follow. I didn't know if they had any on display or had much of a timeline more detailed than within the next couple of months. I'm assuming they'll finish out their current supply of holders before they transition to the new one.

There is a sample of the new holder at the PSA table. It looks nearly identical to the current holder. Appearance is the same, stacks the same. But, yes, the sides are a bit more square because there is no longer the seam on the side. It is now a solid flat side. The bottom part of the holder fits into the top part. So you can no longer "crack out" a card by opening the case from the side. You have to basically completely break the case open to get the card out.

....Yes , but can you safely remove the flip ? I understand there's quite a market for those....

Pretty encouraging that PSA is being proactive against the recent reports of fraud, fakes, reholdering and counterfeit slabs.

Agreed. I don't buy BVG for this very reason. I actually like that I can easily crack PSA's current case, as I like raw cards. I realize, though, that I am not their primary market. However, being their secondary market, this will turn me off of buying their cards.

Cracking any case open can be possible, even easy, with the right tools and technique. Check some of the forums and youtube videos and you'll get some tips to help make the job a snap.

Not a great shot. They feel more solid.

This is a good move. Hopefully SGC will follow suit.

Saw that Brady slab as well, looks and feels just like a small Beckett slab. Will be extremely difficult for scammers to get a clean break.
