Sistema ♥ MtG

Post by GlobalBoosterHunter » Sat May 23, 2015 10:31 am

That is the only reason I can think of for their boxes fitting MtG products so precisely...

Just looking for a way to stack my sealed boxes so they don't get damaged and I came across this system http://sistemaplastics.com/products/klip-it-rectangular

Image

Not bad, the right height for the Tournament/starter boxes with minimal wastage overhead, I have taken out one either end because the curved corners are a bit tight for my liking but a sheet of cardboard underneath as a spacer will fix that.

Image

These boxes fit the older booster boxes as well as the newer ones.

Image
The next size up fits the tournament/starter boxes.

Image
Of course the two sit on top of each other nicely.

Image
And then everything sits nicely on top of the bigger box.

They are made for food so they are not going to off-gas anything too nasty, they are BPA and Phthalate free, strong clips, sturdy boxes and they have a rubberised sealing ring around the top so I will seal them up during the dry season and they should remain safe from the moisture. And they stack really high. They are made in New Zealand so I am not sure if they have made their way to the Northern Hemisphere yet.

For all the Australian stackers, they are on half price sale in Woolworths at the moment: AU$6 for the one with the individual starters (€4 US$5), The one for Starter boxes is AU$4 (€3 US$3) and the ones for the booster boxes are AU$3 (€2 US$2)

Heading back tomorrow to pick up a few more of the Booster box holders, appears I had more than I thought.

These look perfect. Are they made in Korea and designed to hold Kim-Chi?

Hi Mark

Looking at the first pic again, isn't the first and last starter crushed a bit, meaning 10 will be better instead of 11 ?

They are made in New Zealand, not sure if they have Kim-Chi but I am going at Christmas so I will find out :)

Around the lid is a rubberised seal. The larger boxes have four clips and the smaller have two. The plastic is quite thick, it doesn't warp or twist much. I would say they are atmospheric moisture and splash resistant, would probably float as well. But holding one underwater would probably cause a breech. For waterproof I would go with a Pelican Case.

In the box in the first picture there is a centimetre or so of clearance from the lid. My plan is to put a layer on the bottom. This will raise the floor level away from the curves between the floor and the side. The other alternative is to put a row of Unlimited Starters in, just that little bit thinner. I have removed a row at the moment but I think just removing one starter from each end will mean you can keep the starters away from the corners, which will be better for them.

Unfortunately they don't seem to do a size that fits 9 pocket pages or albums. A couple of different options for loose boosters but as mine are destined for a life outside boxes I will not invest too heavily in them. I will pick some more up next time they come on sale though.

The nicest thing about them is that they are not so tight that anything pressing against the box will damage the contents and not so roomy that you waste a lot of space. Probably enough space for a couple of those moisture silica pouches to be added.

They would also look good in a fridge, preserving the MTG cards even better... :-P

Which size (or model number) are these 3 containers? I would hate to order some and get the wrong size

Finally bought a few of these. They are amazingly perfect for storing Magic cards. I have never been so excited about tupperware. Thanks @GlobalBoosterHunter for the recommendation!

They keep coming up for half-price sale in our local supermarket, sadly I have now run out of space to store them.

Apparently we don't have the room to store empty boxes and my offer to buy more MtG product so the boxes wouldn't remain empty was rejected.
