I need hard plastic sleeve/case things...
Where do people get these nowadays? Do people still use the hard plastic cases that hold together with a screw? I need a bunch of these or something else that will protect standard cards better than floppy sleeves. I can't seem to find anything like this on google. Any help would be appreciated. :D

The points mean the thickness of the card. Having standard cards, do you mean the regular thickness of a 16th of an inch or so?
And yes, I like those card holders.
Here Are the Most Common Available Sizes:
35 Point- This is the most popular and common size. It will fit anything from a base Topps Card to a Topps Chrome card.
55 Point-These are for cards that are a tad thicker than Topps Chrome. They are primarily used for thick stock base cards and the thinnest relic cards.
80 Point- These are the rarest and least used magnet cases, for whatever reason cards are usually to small or big for these.
100 Point- These fit your standard high-end relic cards. I find that SP Authentic and Triple Threads Patch Autos fit perfectly in these. In my opinion, a snug fit is always better than a loose one.
130 Point- These are for the extremely thick Jersey Cards. Thick Jersey Cards usually contain a "patch" rather than a "swatch". A "patch" is a thick jersey piece that contains a multi-layered part of a jersey, such as a piece of the number portion of the jersey.
180 Point- These are for the thickest Jersey Cards. Basically, if you pull the thickest card you've ever seen, this is probably the case for that card.

I have seen them at 240 and 360. I am guessing some of these Sweet Spot autos and such are the thicker cards. But yes, the point (PT.) means the thickness. I personally don't like magnets. But I do like screwdowns.
I use the 1/2 inch screwdowns on my nicer, higher $$$ vintage stuff and I use the screwdowns for pretty much anything modern that is over $50. I use top loaders for anything from $5-$49. Hope this helps.
