But that holds the booklet closed right? They need to make holders that display them open so the actual booklet doesn't get handled. If someone only wanted a way to store them a 25 or 50 count snap box works just fine fine for that and probably costs about 10X less than the 360 pt one touch.
They also need to make one that will display the side by side booklets that when opened they are square instead of rectangular. This is something that the card companies need to think about before releasing all of these new configurations of cards. If it is new to the market it would be nice if they were already in some sort of protector or slabbed. Imagine the nightmare that the baseball guys are going thru with the new 2011 Legendary Cuts. Some of those cards open up five and six times and are loaded with amazing cut auto's that I would love to show off but wouldn't want folks to handle it too often. Before you know it they will be like a 20 year old book at a public library. That would KILL any kind of grading score. That's what folks will be scrutinizing next instead of corners, the bindings/hinges.
Don't get me wrong, I love book cards. I'm just afraid that some folks will get WAY too picky about condition.
