A Portable Trading Card Carrying Case?
Sometimes I get together with friends to trade or play cards, while other times I like to bring my card collection with me to show it off. I wanted a card-carrying case on the nicer side (meaning I was willing to pay a little more for it than your standard corrugated cardboard box, which by the way, I have nothing against and fully support…read my other posts), but I wanted something higher end that made me feel good when I put my precious collection into it. Also, I work in a corporate setting and on occasion, have brought my card collection into work to share with my collecting friends over lunch, so I wanted something really nice looking that looked professional as well. After an extensive search on Amazon, I settled on the Quiver portable game card-carrying case and I have to say that I am very happy that I did!
The Quiver Portable Game Card Carrying Case – Product Overview
This portable card-carrying case has a very nice leather exterior, which currently comes in three colors: black, teal and pink…I got the black one. Its got a really cool solid silver “Quiver” emblem right in the middle of the case, which just adds that little extra bling to the overall feel of the case. It has two zippers just like you would find on a suitcase, one on each end; and just like a suitcase, I like to zipper mine from each end to have them both meet in the middle. (I’m anal like that…everything has to be balanced).
It also comes with a wrist strap and shoulder strap…or you can opt to not connect either one of them. I personally haven’t used the wrist strap but I have used the should strap and I do like that feeling of carrying my card collection around my shoulder in this really professional looking high quality leather case. Having that strap as well gives me an added feeling of security that I’m less likely to drop it.
The inside of the case is fabric lined on all sides and cushioned. The inside of the top lid also has a mesh liner / pocket in which you can also store things. I would recommend storing thin items in this mesh pocket because if you store something bulkier, then when you close the lid, it will press down onto your cards and you do not want that. It also comes with two corner pads that help to prevent the corners of your end cards from potentially bending. These corner pads are also removable to give yourself a little extra space if needed.
It also comes with four solid acrylic dividers (two red and two black) and if that’s not enough, it comes with five additional Velcro dividers that can be placed at different angles to accommodate whatever you are carrying (e.g. dice, poker chips, etc.).
This brings me to my next point, which is that although I mainly collect sports trading cards, this case is spacious enough to be used for most other card games, deck boxes, board game supplies, etc. For example, I have friends that play lots of other card and board games and this card case would be perfect (e.g. Magic the Gathering, Cards Against Humanity, Pokemon cards and coins, Yugioh, poker decks and chips, etc.).

The Quiver Portable Game Card Carrying Case – Negatives?
The only slight negative that I’ve experienced thus far in my use of the Quiver Card Case is that the zippers can sometimes be a little challenging to get started when the case is fully open and the zippers are in each corner of the case. If this happens, then make sure the top lid is centered over the bottom portion of the case and be very gentle when trying to get the zipper started.
In summary, I would highly recommend this very fine looking, durable and smartly designed leather trading card / gaming carrying case by Quiver. I give it a 9.5 out of 10 rating. I probably would have given it a 10 out of 10 if it didn’t have the issues with the zippers sometimes; otherwise, the case is amazing and definitely worth the money!
