Linda - Welcome to the "addiction" from another addict! ;-)

Some of the magazines such as Somerset Studio, Cloth Paper Scissors etc.
occasionally address the ATC holder question (for display as well as for
trading material) but I haven't seen anything that is both creative and
useful. They seem to run to small boxes or accordion-style holders for a
half-dozen cards. Artists frequently discuss ways to display multiple cards
on a rotating basis, with no real solutions.

It seems to me that there is a large opportunity for someone to develop both
a better trading-stock storage system and display options. For trading, how
about a drop-front box with pocket protectors bound accordion-style? There
are, BTW, both 9-pocket and 4-pocket pages and binders. Could a Rolodex
style holder be used that would accommodate both horizontal and vertical
formats (that would be nice for display).
