Agree with both Mark and Hank. Do what you prefer, of course, and folks have varying opinions on all of this. I just feel like there is a tendency to overslab in the hobby. I don't like the looks of the labels juxtaposed with otherwise beautiful, vintage items of any kind. Slabbing may make sense in some cases for authenticating and enhancing value if something's for sale but, in my opinion, no one should feel like any item is somehow incomplete as a part of their collection if it's not slabbed. And there are plenty of great options for protecting and displaying pretty much any item, so TPA slabbing is not necessary for that.

huge +1 to this. i can't forget the hall of fame rookie collector who cut apart a vintage piece just so a part of it with the player he needed for his collection could be slabbed by beckett. idiotic.

I've been waiting for it to spread to publications, as it has to comic books, which is the height of absurdity, IMO.

If someone can make a buck, I am sure they will figure out a way to do it. Let's face it, the authentication and slabbing craze has been a masterstroke of marketing genius. The people at the TPAs have worked very hard to convince people that they NEED their item authenticated and slabbed for their protection. Marketing genius that would make Don Draper proud.

They don’t encapsulate any more, they just issue letters

Default They have developed new holder

They are currently not slabbing photos, but they have developed a new holder that they will soon be using for photos. The new holder is much nicer than the old one. It should be available soon.

Has anyone ever seen any statement regarding whether their holders, for any item, are acid free or not? The plastic sheets that I have seen advertised always seem to state, in bold letters, that the sheets are acid free.
Here is what I do if something arrives in my collection in a holder.
