Here are some pics. Post any if you've got 'em. Love to hear people's opinions on this pretty radical shift. No more iconic SGC green and much bigger numbering.

The new flips are actually growing on me. I don't mind the black ones, I didn't like the colored ones when I saw them but haven't seen many examples yet. And I really don't like the white one for the autos. But the black doesn't bother me any more.

I don't like the huge numbers though. I'm still not in favor of those. When I first saw the initial thread about the changes and the pics that were posted then, I absolutely hated the change. So I'm pretty glad that I'm not as bothered by them any more.

The last choice within the poll may be confusing to people, as to this point nobody has chosen it. It reads "I COULD care less", which actually means you do care to some extent.

If it read "I COULDN'T care less", then it would indicate that you truly don't care. I believe that's what the OP meant to convey, but perhaps he can clarify.

I like them overall but like a lot of folks, I think the huge number detracts from the appeal. But seeing as I don't collect very many graded cards and have only done a couple of submissions I'm really not the target market.

If you could care less that means you do care. The last option should be I couldn't care less.

I donít mind the large numbers although I liked the dual number on the old flips. The green made them standout but Iím fine with black. What I donít love are the autograph flips. For some reason the big A doesnít look good to me. Iím also not worried about consistency in my flip labels expect I have an entire player run autographed (that I want to display) with the red flips and I had one left to submit. This will stick out like a sore thumb.

I never thought the quirky numbering system made any sense, so I think the move to a more standard system is good. I really don't care what the flip looks like.

Do people plan to get all their cards reholdered?

Not me. I already allocate too much money to grading that could be spent otherwise. No need to spend more money on new holders. 15 years from now when they change again do you reholder again? Seems crazy to me.
