I use ultra pro one touches for all of my collection, and they are great for storing, protecting, and displaying.

But I've encountered a problem on some cards. A couple of my autographs are tiny bit, a fraction of a millimeter, too long to fit on new one touches. They fit fine on older cases, but for some reason the container on the newer ones seem to be a tiny bit shorter. This is an inconvenience for me since my older one touches are badly scratched but I can't transfer some of the cards.

Anyone else have this problem?

I also don't display anything.

I'm with ya.. Penny sleeve, top loader, and team bag if the card warrants.

One touches are fine, but I've seen and had so many with moving cards etc..

If you are talking about the dimensions of the card itself not fitting in the recessed area. I have come across this with Star Wars Wonder Bread cards. I went with the pro mold cases, they have a wider flat recessed area and fit great.

i spoke to them at the show about making the 35pt thinner and they confirmed it would be real difficult, due to the mold and possibly the magnetic aspect

I have a low level OCD so I try to keep things as uniform as I can. For my Pau Gasol collection I have the normal size cards in a penny sleeve/top loader/team bag.

On the thicker cards like Exquisite and Flawless I use a one touch. This is the set up that works best for me.

BUMPING this.

After reading some opinions in the vlad jr grading thread (baseball) ...

What is best for my unslab'd pc cards: One touch - sleeve/top loader?

The gap in opinion seems wide.
