Default Easy Question?

Im a Tebow collector mainly, and I recently bought a tebow 2010 Absolute Star Gazing prime jersey patch (beautiful card), and I am looking to order a magnet case for it. My question is; what size pt do I need to order for that card? I know the sizes vary, so if anyone is familiar with that set you may be able to help. Thank you in advance. Im just getting back into the hobby so I have a lot to get caught up on haha

Just a guess, but probably 130

I was going to guess 120-130 as well. Panini really sucks in that they make their cards just barely thin enough where in a 130 they could still move around. So ultra pro had to come out with the stupid 120's which you cant just walk in and find at a shop or a show, usually you have to special order them. That being said, I cant guaranty that that particular card is a 120-130 pt, just know many panini jersey/patch cards are

Its most likely 120 like gowifb said, just put it in a sleve first to make up the difference and put it in a 130.

They don't make 120 magnets

And you can order the 120 top loaders from blowout if you're looking for them, picked up a bunch in an order of mine a month or so ago when I realized they carried them.

My former LCS (refuse to give those asshats anymore of my money) has like 100 of the 120 pt top loader boxes sitting behind their counter and refuse to sell them and don't even use them for themselves, just like they want to show off how cool they are that they have some

No, 100 point is perfect for this. Panini's typical prime patch cards are 96 point.

Their regular GU's are 74 point.

LMFAO what a bunch of douche bags. Do they like open cases of product themselves and want to save them for all their hits? Oh and yes zonacats is right, I dont believe they make 120 pt magnetics (had forgotten he was asking about magnetics and not toploaders). So yea you will prob want to go with a 130 pt. You could always take it down to your local card shop to. They could probably tell you and hopefully even sell you a magnetic

96 point? I cant recall many patch autos I have had from panini that fit into 100 ct loaders. I always have to use the 120 cause I remember that I am always frustrated that I can never fit them in the 100s and they fit just barely too loosely in the 130s

No, they don't open anything themselves, but I've asked why they won't sell them and they say its because they're not made anymore and it's for their own personal use.

But for the almost year that I would go in there (and basically everyday) the huge stack of them never changed, they obviously never used them or their stock would have dwindled at least a little bit, but it's still like a perfect stack of them with none missing

Ah ok, its possible that panini may have made them slightly thinner a couple years ago. Plus, I guess it might be different just putting a card in a magnetic that doesnt have a sleeve on it vs trying to jam it into a toploader with the sleeve. I would probably listen to this guy then if he has alot of these and knows the magnetic size he has put them in
