Encapsulation FAQs

Why is my holder slightly thicker?

CGC Cards uses a slightly thicker version of its standard holder for odd-sized cards that require a custom inner sleeve to be held securely in place. This holder does not qualify as a “thick” card holder as it is only slightly thicker than our standard holder. CGC Cards uses this holder at its sole discretion for no additional fee.

Why is my card holdered with an inner plastic sleeve?

Small and odd-sized cards may be holdered with an inner plastic sleeve inside the CGC Cards holder to ensure they are protected and stay securely in place. The inner sleeves that CGC Cards uses are custom made to fit the exact dimensions of the holder.
