    Hi. Now I finally understand how simple this process it. One thing I missed was the approximate size. Are these basically oversized business cards with art? Thanks. Please enter me in the contest.

      Hi! Usually the size is 2.5″ x 3.5″, which is the size of regular playing cards, like for Poker/Bridge. It’s also fun to make your own with recycled cereal boxes and use a template on how to cut a single sheet of 8.5’X11″ card stock/cardboard into 10 ATC sized cards (search for “ATC template”).

      To display your collection, they make plastic sheets with pockets for baseball cards that hold 9 of them to a page in a 3 ring binder, which can be found at most comic book, hobby, office supply and craft stores, althoguh I always see them at Walmart in the trading card games section.
