Yes, this is what you think it is a Top Loader Card Protector. Are you asking why am I posting a top loader with no card in it? Well, it is because I want to show my appreciation to the top loader. you see they didn't use to have protection like this when I began collecting cards.
After I went to my first card convention in 1977 I realized that my cards needed to be protected to be worth something someday. So I ventured to Wal-Mart trying to find something that would work. I wanted something that I could display my cards in but they would still be protected. The best I could find was 3 1/2" by 3 1/2" photo albums. The photo albums didn't work very good but at least I had a way I could display them in an album. Later in the hobby they came up with the 9 pocket card sheets for protection. The first time I used a top loader protector I thought they were great! I could once again carry my baseball cards in a deck without hurting them! Of course with todays top loader like the one above the 3 by 4, I insert a card into a thin protector plastic sleeve and slide the card inside the Top Loader. Just wanted to share how things used to be and how they are now.
