This week we celebrate Pull Tab Awareness Week!
This is the week, started by Gavin of Baseball Card Breakdown, where we remind those in the hobby who sell and trade cards to use tape responsibly by using a tab to make for easier removal from the rigid top loader.
Many of us have received a card where the sender put a piece of Scotch tape across the top and it is difficult to remove the tape or even worse, the card inside slid and is now caught under the tape with no easy way to open it.
I like to add a small piece of cardboard across the top, wider than the tape, so when I place the tape across the top loader it is placed over the cardboard in the opening so even if the card does slide it will not touch the tape and get stuck. If I am sending multiple cards I will put them in top loaders and then inside a team bag to keep the cards all together.
