Hi Guys (and Gals) I was just wondering what you people use to hold/display your graded notes.

Someone from a different forum suggested the following to me. It looks really nice and sturdy but its be a tad pricey ($65-75 USD)

I also have been looking for those lighthouse type of 2 window maylar binder pages for my graded notes but as of yet have not found any.

Something like this:

You should give Steve from BCS a call..He is working on a album for TPG notes to fit these holders, but he could probably tell you were you can get the 2 pocket sleeves as well.  I have seen some members that had them at the last show

Ouch..

I love the Product Photo of the person Bending the Hell out of the note in the TPG Holder in the page binder.

Wow...

Makes you wonder why maybe PMG Notes are overgraded?? Perhaps some collectors handle there Graded notes this way..lol.

You would think the pages of the holder would be a bit more rigid. :)

I'm glad someone asked the question as I was thinking the same thing myself.  I've got about 25 notes in BCS holders now but they are actually larger than the pages you promoted by 1/2 an inch.  For the time being they're laying flat in a wooden box that used to house tangerines.  I like the idea of the album and pages but as someone else said, they are a little pricey.

If you have a Dollarama in your area check out the boxes they have for a buck
The ones they sell come in a variety of soild colors with lids and they will hold over 70 BCS holders perfectly.  You can't beat the price...

Thanks, I found a Wintery box for under $2 but the notes don't stand up with the lid on so they have to lay flat.  I can display them nicely now if I want as they stick out of the top!

Keep checking Dollarama's because I know many stores still have them in stock and the BCS notes fit in perfectly with no room for play...asthough they were made for them :)
I did notice that the ones I have seen in Toronto stores have been bumped to $1.50 now :(
