Ultra Pro Magnetic Booklet CasesBrand: Ultra Pro
Booklet cases are one of the newest innovations from Ultra Pro. These large cases hold booklet cards, which are arguably the most popular cards featured in high-end product offerings. Until now, collectors did not have a great option to both display and protect these valuable cards.
Booklet cases offer the exact same protection as the regular Ultra Pro magnetic cases. One key difference is the case measurements are based on the total booklet length in millimeters, as opposed to card thickness. Early on, the main difference in size for booklet cards was due to the size of the card spine. This is why the two versions are so similarly sized. Although there are only two different options currently, Ultra Pro is in the process of expanding their line. Once again, making sure you have the correct case size is crucial to properly protecting your cards. The cards also come with a stand so you can display your prized booklet card. While most booklet cards should fit in one of the two sizes, a few brands have caused problems. The printing press booklet cards from Panini Playbook have proven to be too thick for the case.
Due to the ever-changing card size and orientation, Ultra Pro is working on a few ideas for new booklets. This includes thicker booklet cards (for cards like the Panini Playbook printing plate booklets), and cases for booklets that open vertically. Vertical booklets are popular in Triple Threads and some of the Marvel sketch offerings.
Another option for collectors would be to put two individual cards in the same booklet case. This might be an appealing way to showcase two high-end cards from the same set or two autographed or relic cards of your favorite player. There will be a gap between the cards, so they will shift, but as long as the case is not regularly moved, no damage should occur. Given the smaller size, the 185mm is the better option for this. While the thickness in points is not indicated on the case, it appears to be very close to a 130PT magnetic case.
Collectors trust Ultra Pro cases with their top cards for a reason. Check out some nice cards in Ultra Pro Magnetic Booklet cases.
