Thread: Magnetic Holders
03-06-2013, 09:17 PM #1
Looking to start putting some of my nicer PC into magnetic holders. What's everyone recommend brand, pts size, ect? Have a couple thicker gu and then some bowman chrome autos. Never had any of these before so not sure how they hold up. I'd imagine better then a top loader. Can you fit penny sleeves in these or just the cards?

Ive been wondering the same things.I am an avid Atlanta Braves Auto collector. I am in the process of updating all my autos to a spreadsheet and organizing them. I am always looking for Atlanta Braves RCs Autos and also nice veteran autos.

If you guys go to this site there is a reference chart for how to determine what pt size one touch you will need for your GU's. They also sell the 1 touch's on the site as well. This is the only place I get/order my supplies as the owner is also a member to SCF, plus you cant beat the prices.
Chart is under FAQ link. Hope this helps.

For Bowman Chrome, 35 pt Ultra Pro is the way to go. For a while, I worried about the card surface pressing up against the top of the holder, and bought a bunch of the 55 pt. Now I'm regretting it, and going back to 35 pt purely. The recess is perfect for the card. The 55 pt works, but there's enough room where it allows the card to bow slightly if it wasn't already. 55 pt was overkill. Each one touch is stored inside an Ultra Pro graded team bag.
I use 35 point for any standard card, chrome, bowman platinum or sterling. For Topps museum and Upper Deck Exquisite, Ultra Pro 130 pt.
These will generally be much cheaper to buy on Ebay than through your LCS.Collecting pre-war, vintage and modern baseball cards.

Yea I got one with a card I got and I loved it, so I figured my other PC items should be in these instead of top loaders.Changing paths, no more set collecting. Just PC'ing Orioles Auto's and Patches.
