Well I just acquired 300 penny sleeves for $2 as the dealer had some old stock plus sending me some Mexican made sleeves to evaluate (the company getting these produced is Danish) at present they look and feel just like the sleeves I already have from Ultra Pro that are made in China.

regards

John

So a pound and a quid are the same thing? When I watch a UK show they always interchange those two terms and even in the same sentence.


Yes a pound is the same as a Quid. Quid is slang for a pound

Pence is a sort of slang for penny
EG Thruppense for a 3 penny piece or Tuppence for 2 pennies
Although the UK have decimilised their currency they still use the name New Pence instead of cents
Were other Commonwealth Countries have adopter and changed their currencies to equal from the Stirling to decimal system.
In New Zealand it was decided that the 1 shilling piece nicknamed the bob should equal 10 cents thus 20 shillings or bobs that equalled 1 Pound should now equal 2 dollars
Coins we had were
Penny
Threepence
Sixpence
Shilling 12 Pence
Florin 2 shillings
Half Crown 2 shillings and sixpence (= quarter
10 Shilling Note ( equal $1 )
1 Pound Note ( equal $2 )
We also had Farthings ( Quarter of a penny )
Half Pennies
Crowns equalling 5 shillings but these coins were not used in everyday buisness

Curious for the final judgement on these sleeves.

They are Beckett Shield, so they are from the same company as NSU in a round-about way.

The logic being that made in Mexico will keep the supply chain closer at hand instead of relying on shipping containers and the port of entry to get them. They are trucked to the warehouse in Texas.

Just got pages in this week to evaluate. Hopefully toploaders will be coming soons as those are going to be the real challenge to supply right now.

The sleeves are made by Arcane Tinman ApS who also make different sized sleeves for cards used in board games. These sleeves for trading cards are made with the assistance of Beckett hence the name. Clearly Beckett have got involved in accessories for cards.

I had to buy some Beckett sleeves last week because the sports card store was completely out of the Ultra-Pro ones. The package opens from the bottom for some reason which means they have all spilled out once already. Other than that, they feel the same and cards seem to slip in a little easier.

Unless I mixed up my Beckett sleeves with others, in my experience that they don't seem to slip about like the others when putting them in piles which I put down less static electricity being attracted to them. I also find that they open more easily when only using your forefinger and thumb of one hand which means less handling.

regards

John

I've been lucky with penny sleeves. Years ago I accidentally ordered a large volume of penny sleeves. I mean I wanted some but....!!! I'm sure I'll run out some day...

It's brutal right now.

BCW lists a 2022 date for having "standard" toploads back in stock.

My supplier has NO stock of any standard card sized topload of any thickness, anywhere in the country. And they have 8 locations.

My local shop limits toploads to 1 per customer, and I think they were $7 last time I was in. Sleeves are getting tough too.

Plastics are going to PPE and all the acrylic shields you are seeing. Plus importing from China is still slow even when they get something made.

If you see some available, I'd grab what you might need.

At this point COMC should take just about any standard size top loaders they can get (sticker residue can be cleaned off) and just let their customers know that availability is at an all-time low and they aren't being "disrespectful."

I can see this being a bit of a damp squib if they are not going to pay shipping fees as they have said in their comments. They clearly expect something for nothing as implied by some peoples comments.
