Default My new wall mounted graded card case

Well just got this in today. Not as easy to install as you would think, I would say you need 3 people to get it up. It does not fit the BGS cards with the auto grade on the front(extremely annoying!) To make the non graded cards stay up I put a tiny piece of removable tap behind each one..What do you think?

Looks great--only thing I'd be concerned about is light and those autos. Maybe someone else can weigh in on that, but I don't think they typical magnetic or BGS case will prevent fading from light exposure.

I think that magnetics are UV protected. I'm pretty sure the ones I've bought say they are good for up to 4 years or something like that but I could be wrong

Its dark most of the time as Im rarely home anyway, But the the magnetic inserts say they are UV protected(Special UV Barriers reduce light exposure)?
I think becketts is also uv protected but I don't know how much light you can expose them too.

EDIT: Clarkzac - I read that on another brand that it is good up to 4 or 5 years.

I am pretty sure I bought a smaller version of the case you purchased...did you get it off ebay? If so, I think we purchased from the same guy. I really like my case, although as you've found, the ungraded cards have a hard time staying up unless there is some tape or something behind them

I think it depends if the little magnetic piece is gold or silver. Not sure, and don't quote me, but I thought gold meant UV protected for a certain amount of years and silver meant no UV protection. This is Ultra Pro, of course. The other magnetic brands are pathetic.

I got it on eBay for $110 Dlvd. Overall it's a nice case, but if you don't have thin style bgs holders the wont fit. I just called BGS and its $5 to recase the cards.

How do you think it would work with PSA slabs?

Wow - its weird to see the different sized BGS holder for the versions without the auto grade on the front.

It would work perfect since they are thin
