    Is anyone aware of a manufacturer that makes an appropriate-sized display or card holder for the odd size of these cards?

    I finally got around to sorting these for display, but the cards don't fit into the conventional card protection products.

    Thanks!

    What's the measurements for them? 
    Mayfair, Swan, FFG & Ultra Pro make different size sleeves

    There might be some products sold for tabletop gaming that would work.

    They fit quite well in to a waste paper basket.

    I had so many duplicates of some left over that I made up packs of happy families games for my kids. I don't think they've even looked at their albums for months, whereas the cards get played with a couple of times a week.

    I’ve enough for a small skip!

     I was given three shipping boxes of these (long after they stopped being popular) with goodness knows how many boxes inside. They are providing valuable insulation to a cupboard right now but I don’t have the heart to ditch them.

    One day they’ll be popular again. Or not.

    ^ For card sleeves- Mayday Premium  should work. They do 80x54mm (2 1/8x3 1/8). They're made for Settlers of Catan.
    Ultra Pro also do sleeves at that size

    Probably looking at around $3-4 per pack of 50.

    Might be able to find other companies doing thinner sleeves at that size for a bit cheaper

    That's in line with what I remember for good card sleeves from my MTG days
    As for three ring binder pages with multiple pockets, all sizes I saw seemed slightly big or way too small for these.

    I put them in the same plastic sleeves as Pokemon cards if that helps with size. 
  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 11,353
    I'm looking for some way to display a set of them.

    Searched high and low for those buggers only to be lost in the depths of the wee mans closet never seen or bothered with..
