Pro Grade Magnetic "Book" Style Umpire Lineup Card Holder / Game Card Referee Wallet
This card holder is nice but a little large for my shirt pocket.

Thanks for all you do. My way of giving back. I'm a stickler for details. I've always been looking to improve my speed and organization during game line up changes. To the point where I have forms I use for courtesy runners and conferences. This line up holder is PERFECT. I fold the line ups so it fits. Don't worry about the subs or heading. Make sure you have names, numbers, and positions showing for starting line ups. I use a paper clip to only hold the folds. (not to the organizer) With my system set as it is now, I smile to myself when I make changes and know how efficient and confident I feel. You think the head coaches who rate you do not notice this? Especially when you tell them a particular starter or sub is burnt now.
This is the BEST card holder! The magnets keep the lineup cards in place and I don't have to worry about getting them wet when I sweat.
Love the magnet holder. You can put line-ups on either side and don't have to fuss with them when making changes. I agree that a pocket or two would be very helpful and maybe a pen holder on the inside.
Great little score card holder. It holds the card in place very nicely with the magnetic flip style holders. Does not fit well in my shirt pocket. (Smitty shirt) It does fit well in my jacket pocket. (Majestic Therma Base jacket) I did also notice some chaffing along the bottom edge of the material from taking it in and out of my pocket more so when I was sweating. All in all it is one of the best card holders I've ever used.
Great product. Securely holds your lineup cards.
Works well and the magnetic holder works great! Won't buy anything else.
Bought two for my son and me. The magnetic keepers work great. Plate meetings look professional and I never have to search for line up cards.

The magnets are a great touch. They keep the lineup cards in place and easy to write on. Much easier to handle the cards then if folded in a pocket. With that said, it's too long to go in a shirt/pant pocket. I have to keep it inside a ball bag pocket. Would agree with another reviewer about another little pocket inside. Also would add a loop to keep a pen/pencil attached. Right now, I keep my pen in the crease and it stays put for the most part. Addition of a paper pad inside would be nice as well.

Best line up card holder ever!!!
North Little Rock, AR
Overall construction of the holder is FANTASTIC. It's sturdy and the magnets are perfect on those windy days. The only downside is that it doesn't quite fit in my ball bag like the older model I had, but I moved it to my shirt pocket and am good to go. I do wish there was a way to keep the pen/pencil in place without clipping it to the top so that it hangs out. Great Product overall!!

It's too long in length to put in shirt pocket. Too soft to write on. I like the magnetic feature but shorten the length and get rid of the padding.
Mont Belvieu, TX
I love the magnets that hold the line-ups in place. Wish there was a place for a pen or pencil. Too big for the pocket in my umpire ball bag. If I had it to do over again, I would not purchase it due to the size of the product.
I love the size and the overall construction of this lineup card holder. Magnets are a great idea! The only addition I would make would be to add a pouch inside that goes behind the lineup cards.
So it's pretty tough to give this a middling review since it's pretty solid functionality wise. However, this thing is absolutely massive. It's 1.5x longer than a standard game card holder which doesn't seem like a lot until you put it in your back pocket. It's great for baseball/softball when you can put it in a ball bag but no go for any other official.

I love this line up holder! The magnets on each side are strong enough to hold even over sized line up sheets that are folded over 2-3 times. The magnets also hold it closed while in my ball bag, and there is room in the center of it to hold even a fat pen or pencil along the seam. It fits in my back pocket fine if I'm using it on the bases too.
I use the holder for football. I wish you had a smaller length that could fit into a shirt pocket.
This is a very nice holder. It also functions very well. The clips are very good for holding lineup cards, and my Zebra pen fits nicely in the fold when closed. Materials feel premium.
Fits perfectly into the pocket of my dry-lo ball bag. Easy to use and good quality.
Not sure this will work for me. I am used to having full size line up cards in my holder.
I got this for LL tournament where there are a ton of changes and re-entries. I loved the size and magnetic clips as it made getting to what I needed fast and efficient.
This lineup card holder is FANTASTIC!!! Magnets hold the lineup cards secure; pen clips easily inside or outside of holder; fits easily in ball bag pocket or shirt pocket; materials are durable and long-lasting. Do yourself a favor and grab one of these TODAY!

I finally got to give my new lineup card holder a thorough workout this past weekend at a tournament. I LOVE IT!! IT's worth every cent! The magnetic clips work perfectly. I used one side for the two lineup cards and the other for my own game card (my own design). I put my full size G2 pen easily into the center fold. The plastic pen clip slid easily over the holder material. Several times, I simply placed the pen into the fold without clipping it. As long as I was careful in opening the holder, the pen fit perfectly in the fold and the holder closed completely with the two magentic clips keeping the folder closed and my pen inside. The holder is tall enough to fit nicely into the ball bag. The material is durable and should last a long time.
I have used many different lineup holders over the years and had resolved myself to a flimsy plastic ASA holder with a binder clip. After buying this one, however, I think I found the one I will use for quite some time. It is durable and the magnetic clips work very well for any size card. It is also a great size to fit in a ball bag. I generally put my lineup cards length-wise with the bottom folded up to keep score on. I don't have to flip the holder sideways or support it with my leg anymore to make substitutions. I highly recommend this product for anyone.

This holder looks sharp. Makes you look professional when calling balls and strikes for your game. It is a little big to the point where it will stretch the pocket on your umpire shirt. I think it just looks neater to grab the lineup card from the pocket.
Well, I acquired the fabulous new lineup card wallet from Ump-Attire.com. I could not be more impressed with such an accessory. It is highly functional and premium quality. I am just thrilled with it. It was designed by umpire Ray Brownlie, who introduced us to it on the Umpire-Empire.com Umpire Equipment forum. I am sorry that I waited so long to grab one. I already had what I thought was an effective system, but this new accessory is the finest of its kind. It's actually one of a kind. If $19.99 seems steep, wait until you have it in your hands. It's a value. (I do prefer the no-logo model that Ump-Attire.com offers.)
Spring Valley, CA
Definitely a must have!
Finally something that will fit in your pants pocket and separate the two lineup cards! Great job!
Great holder! Good length and the magnets are super strong. I can't imagine myself ever using a different one now!
Santa Maria, CA
I like the leather look and feel. It's compact size and the magnetic holder to keep the lineups in place is awesome. I had also bought the flip lineup holder, but I prefer the notebook style the best.
Grass Valley, CA
This is, by far, the best lineup holder yet. Longer length makes writing on lineups much easier, the magnets work better than clips, it holds a full-size pen in place nicely without having to use clips, and the over-all construction is going to last a lot longer that the plastic types I have used in the past. Adding a sleeve/slot inside would be my only suggestion.
New Fairfield, CT
The best folder I have had so far. A longer platform to write on.
Great purchase. It is very nice. It fits in your back pocket very comfortable and easy to get to when needed. Nice item - better than any I have ever had.
The Holder is great! It works really well and fits nicely into my pocket. 5 Stars! As a suggestion, an inside pocket to put an extra card or checklist would be great or maybe a plastic sleeve.
This item is the best yet. It looks sleek and the clips. I don't need to have those metal paper clips any more. I have spent a lot on holders but this is really the best.
Colorado Springs, CO
I like the larger size and the magnetic holding the card.. only downside.. it grabs the metal indicator in my bag and drags it out too... (magnets...)... I may have to use a plastic one going forward... but it's better than all the clips I used to use...
Charlotte , NC
Love the holder. I just fold the longer cards and record all of my game info with no problems. It's also going to be great for football as well.
This is a great book to not only hold line-ups, but score cards and trip sheets. Very sturdy and fits pockets.
Valley Stream, NY
The magnetic lineup card holder works for me as I wear 2 ball bags. Baseballs go in one and the lineup card holder goes in the other. Car keys are also in the left side bag. I am a "righty."
I just purchased this product and I like it better than any lineup holder I have had. The magnets hold the lineup cards in place. Some lineup cards I receive are longer and a little wider making it harder to fit into your shirt pocket unless you fold the cards up. It seems well constructed to last longer than a season or two.
Best purchase of the season so far. No more clips and rubber bands etc. So easy to access the holder and deal with timeouts and substitutions. Looks so professional being able to handle the lineup cards quickly and easily. Fits into my ball bags nicely, is a little big for the shirt pocket, but that's no big deal to me. Absolutely recommend to anyone. Only wish it had a pen holder, but I can deal with that, for everything else it brings to the table.
To be honest its a nice holder, but it's not long enough to hold the long lineup sheets that every coach has. My ASA lineup holder is wider and just as long as this one.
Great magnet. Good card holder. It could of use a pen holder. My pen keeps falling out every time I take it out of my pocket.
I've used many lineup holders and this one is the BEST. The magnet clips are perfect for holding paper. Perfect fit for pocket or ball bag.
Love it! Magnets hold securely when you want them to but also open easily when you want them to. Beautifully engineered product. Nice writing surface for lineup changes. You won't regret giving this a try.
Spring Lake, MI
The holder is too big to fit in a shirt pocket. It would be much more functional if it was not so long and bulky.
Have had the cheaper ones before. Thus far through a few weeks this leather"esque" one holds up well and the magnets are a nice touch, and it looks more professional, worth the 20 bucks.
Nothing else compares, it's worth every penny.
This is the best umpire lineup holder I've seen. It looks incredibly professional on the field and the quality is incredible. You definitely won't regret adding this to your field attire.
Best lineup holder I've ever used. It's terrific! It is a little bit thicker than the other cheapo holders but it holds my Sharpie Pen nice and snug in the "spine." It's been worth every penny and I absolutely recommend it. I've used the cheapy plastic holders but they end up breaking before the end of the season. This is sturdy!!
This is by far the best information wallet I have used on the baseball field. I have tried many. The plastic ones always break, pencils fall out of the pockets, the ones that have the clip on them don't hold up, but this one is great. I had the original which was a little shorter and loved it, but the new longer length is great for High School and College teams that use larger lineups. The magnets that hold the lineups in place are the best feature. You cannot go wrong with this product.

This is a great product for anyone on the fence! I have purchased two items from Ray Brownlie and the quality is second to none. Actually ordered a third and he refused to ship because of subpar quality from his printer. There's a lot to be said for integrity in this business and Rays is way up there! Sounds like a great pairing with Ump-attire.com.
Didn't buy it via Ump-attire.com but thru Ray. He's a great guy and his products are worth it. I highly encourage you to buy this product because it's made by and umpire for an umpire. Design is true to its description and the magnets are the best yet.
This is a great umpire line-up holder, and would definitely recommend to ANY umpire. This will definitely make your life easier!
It works well. Room for my pen. Magnets are secure. Narrow holder.
I have used many lineup holders over my years as an umpire but this lineup card holder is the best one EVER!!!! I highly recommend this for all officials out there. This is a unique product and it is the best!!!
