Default QUESTION: What size magnetic booklet holder should I get? (National Treasures)

I was lucky enough to pull a hell of a booklet from National Treasures. I'm curious what size the dual signed baseball booklets use? This is my first booklet I have ever pulled period, so I don't want to have to buy one of every size in order to get the right fit.

I'll reveal my hit in the Breaks section in a bit, for those curious... It's an superhero-like hit.

Sorry I just saw that you were wondering what size booklet holder you should use, and youd have to tell us if its vertical standing or horizontal


and if im not mistaken all booklet cases are the same size.

To be safe, get the 187. Only a 2 mm difference. You can buy them here at blowout, as well.

or

I've had booklets that won't fit in a 185. Never had an issue with a 187. And I've never had an issue with one being too small in a 187. Never done a NT book, though. Just about everything else works in 187, though (five star, sterling, TTT, etc) So that's what I'd recommend.

I will definitely get this, then. Here is my break, for those curious. Got arguably the best names on the checklist for dual balls.

Out of curiosity, is a magnetic the way to go for something like this or do you guys prefer alternative options? If so, what do you like to do?

Magnetic all the way. Nothing comes close to these. They're great.

It's the smaller of the two, for future reference in case a Googler finds this thread with the same question.

No...there's 185 and 187 and it's incredible how much of a difference 2mm makes. The NT cards fit in the 187. 185 is too small.

Sure? There is quite a bit of space left in the holder that I bought, which is 187mm. The booklet is flailing around in there as is. Quite a bit of space to the right, little bit up top. Got to be careful with it.
