We got our hands on the new “I:P Masquerena 9-Pocket Duelist Portfolio” and figured we would give you a quick review with a few photos. This is in stores now, and would make an excellent Holiday Gift for any Yu-Gi-Oh! Fan. 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. Trust me, it looks great in person.
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. The binder features some of our favorite card arts from Yu-Gi-Oh!
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 places, 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. Also, 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.
