What size toploader/screw down/magnetic holder do I need for my card?
 
There are many different cards with many different thicknesses. This post will try to help you figure out which holder will fit your card the best.

First, measure the thickness of your card with a ruler in mm (millimeters).

If you check our list of toploaders ([URL="http://www.blowoutcards.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=118_119"]Toploaders : Blowout Cards - Sports Cards and Trading Cards Wholesale Online Store[/URL]), you'll see the following sizes:

1.5mm - 59pt
2mm - 79pt
2.75mm - 108pt
3.5mm - 138pt
5mm - 197pt
7mm - 240pt

So 1mm is approximately equal to 40.0pt

Not sure if this is helpful. Here is how I judge it without the ruler.

Base Card: 3x4 premium toploaders or RC toploaders if rookie card.
Framed Card, Topps Platinum/Mayo like thick card: (About 108 pt, thick toploaders)
Common Game Used: 138 pt.
Letterman, 197 pt.

Anything thicker than a letterman, or a bulging patch would be wise to measure with a ruler. If this post is not helpful, delete it. It is what I have learned from experience and fuzzy math. :) I use BCW supplies only.

I need to know this, What size are Exquisite Cards? Also, what size are the Hot Prospects RPA's? I need some of that size but am always confused about toploaders and Magnetics which I need!

Can anyone confirm whether or not an Ultra Pro magnetic 55 pt holder will fit Ginter autos from 2007-2010?

I use 75pt if that helps

OK I guess I'm confused... I measured an A&G relic card and it appeared to be 1 mm thick, so that should be 40 pt.

Wouldn't the 75 pt holders leave too much room for the card to move around?

I'm guessing 35 or 55 would have to be used... 35 is too tight tho, right?

For toploaders, I've tried both, couldnt remember which size i had last time so I bought both 75 and 55 the other day. the 55's are a little tight, 75's a little looser. I can say it will be a PITA getting the card out of a 55 but it does not appear to bow the holder at all. I would think 55 would be fine for a mag holder.
