I've seen a lot of these among YuGiOh players/collectors recently in Belgium. I was surprised since I had never seen those in the past.

I thought it was a good idea for sellers in a store or on a convention, for the reasons you mentioned above.

But it is definitely a pain in the a** to take them in or out, and besides, the top of the card is hidden, making the whole page, in my opinion, definitely ugly.

A 9 page full of MTG cards is so nice otherwise :-D

Interesting. I have never seen any for sale. My test page had that problem and we talked about it--at least to make the flap transparentl--but it must not have happened. As is I agree, they would be unacceptable, except to traders/dealers (which was their focus market).

Yes, I would appreciate that a lot. I may yet make another display and have, for years, thought of a land display (not the wonderfully complete sets talked about here--just one of each art). Pages like that would be great. You can probably imagine what my display pages would look like if they were dropped with the top side down.......
