Mattel Disney Pixar Diecast CARS: Diecast Authority Display Cases + Grading + Contest + Coupon Code!

Of course, most collectors know them as Action Figure Authority as action figure display cases & grading has been going on for much longer but we welcome them as an advertiser AND as a new source for single display cases and more importantly, as the authoritative company in the industry on toy grading for collectors.

First up, as you all know, most of the on-card single display cases are geared towards Hot Wheels – and while the appearance briefly of the snap-on cases for Mattel Disney Pixar CARS was nice enough – they offered a little protection but still not much in display usage … Diecast Authority has stepped up and is offering some world class display cases and card protection.

Keep in mind it’s a little hard to photograph a card with a clear bubble in a clear acrylic display case so don’t mind the background color or the reflections …

Mainline

Okay, Hank might not be everyone’s first choice in storing it securely in an acrylic case πŸ™‚ but Snot Rod with confetti? Original Sarge? Fred on Supercharged card or maybe all the Chase CARS deserve a nice cozy acrylic home πŸ™‚ Or if you secure your Bug Mouth McQueen, send us a pic! πŸ™‚

Mainline Top Notch

Also note, your mainline single is not going to rattle around in the case, these are custom cases built just for the mainline singles – they have a plastic tab that you slide the top of the card into … so no droopy cards …

Mainline Bottom

The bottom is a slide base-drawer that is solid and slides in tightly – again, solid and sturdy, requiring effort to open it.

For the Mini’s …

Mini Front

Perfect for the Mini Piston Cup Racers to keep pristine … that’s a reflection on the side BTW.

Mini Notch

Mini
Same as the mainline singles case, a notch to hold the card from drooping and the bottom base is tightly secure but slides out for access and changes.

For the Megasize … this will the one area where it’s hard to decide what to acrylic box up first … and with Bessie coming …

Mega

Mega Bottom Open

Again, base is tight-on but slides off for access.

Hauler

The Hauler one is great. The slight curve on the front acrylic is especially classy …

Hauler Box open

Again, Hauler box is nice and secure but you can access it anytime by sliding the bottom door-base open.

The next step is grading your favorite CARS. As we move in the territory where CARS can cost hundreds to thousands of dollars NOT to mention all the unauthorized CARS, and counterfeits – there will be dozens of CARS that require a legitimate third party valuation to not only grade it on its condition but also its authenticity. Once it’s been graded and authenticated, it gets a special ID number and it’s sealed.

Graded main

So while this looks like the other megasize case, the base is sealed and cannot be opened.

Graded

Once graded, buyers, sellers or just for your own sleepless night – you can rest assured knowing that your CAR has been verified by a respected grader such as Diecast-Action Figure Authority and everyone feels confident in its legitimacy.
