TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) Albaz – Ecclesia – Tri-Brigade 9-Pocket Duelist Portfolio featuring two different artworks on each of the front and back covers! The front cover features Fallen of Albaz and Dogmatika Ecclesia, the Virtuous from Rise of the Duelist! Tri-Brigade monsters sprang into action in Phantom Rage, and artwork from the brand-new Tri-brigade Token Card from Structure Deck: Albaz Strike adorns the back cover, ready to protect your cards!
Designed with a secure side-loading design, this 10-page Portfolio has 9 pockets per page – by placing cards front-to-back, you can stage up to 180 of your most cared for cards. The 9-Pocket Duelist Portfolio also utilizes an anti-slip feature to keep cards secure and your collection safe at all times.
This Kuriboh binder is in stores now. Here is the official preview image from Konami:
And here is what the binder looks like in real life:
It is really difficult to get a good photo of the portfolio because it is highly reflective, with a lot of foil designed into the cover. I tried to catch some of the foil color in the photo.
Here is a closeup of some of the foiling:
Here is the back cover of the portfolio.
The back cover has that same type of holofoil shimmer designed into the image. It looks great.
This card binder retails for $9.99 and seems solid and well-made. It has 10 pages, and thus slots for 180 sleeved cards – front & back. There is a black anti-slip meshy material behind each slot that keeps cards in place, and prevents the YGO cards from touching each other back to back. The black background also makes your cards visually “pop” in the binder for a nice look.
Cards are also side-loaded. This keeps cards from accidentally flying out the top. And there are no rings to that will dent your cards. We like this a lot. This portfolio is about 3/4″ thick, 11.75″ tall and 9″ wide. All in all, for $10, it’s easy to recommend this binder to YGO players.
