eight-pocket pages in the steve garvey binders hold some sweet cards from sweet spot

there are quite a few cards that are a bit too thick to fit into the standard 9-pocket pages in my steve garvey binders.  so, i've got them in 8-pocket pages where they fit pretty well.  here are the first two such pages:
those cards are:

1. 2002 upper deck sweet spot legendary signatures autograph - print run of 871
2. 2002 upper deck sweet spot legendary signatures autograph (with '6' inscription) - print run of 871
3. 2002 upper deck sweet spot classics signatures autograph
4. 2002 upper deck sweet spot classics signatures autograph (with '6' inscription)
5. 2003 upper deck sweet spot classic classic greats autograph black ink /174
6. 2003 upper deck sweet spot classic patch (los angeles dodgers)
7. 2003 upper deck sweet spot classic patch (san diego padres) /350
8. 2003 upper deck sweet spot classic patch relic /150 (red patch with white jersey)

sweet spot autos were pretty cool when they were first introduced.  heck, they are still cool today.  i'm glad that garvey or someone at upper deck had the good sense to use ballpoint pen on these cards back then instead of the disappearing ink that was used in 2007.  in 2003, upper deck brought us inserts that included manufactured patches along with game used patches.  you know i am a sucker for those red number patch cards!  so much so, we'll see another one in a bit.

here are the backs:
here's the next sheet:
those cards are:

1. 2003 upper deck sweet spot classic patch relic /150 (red patch)
2. 2003 upper deck sweet spot classic patch relic /150 (blue patch with white jersey)
3. 2003 upper deck sweet spot classic patch relic /150 (blue and white patch with gray jersey)
4. 2003 upper deck sweet spot classic patch 1977 world series /50
5. 2003 upper deck sweet spot classic patch 1981 world series /50
6. 2004 upper deck sp game used patch legendary fabrics autograph dual relic/auto (blue patches) /25
7. 2004 upper deck sp game uesd patch legendary fabrics autograph dual relic/auto (blue patch with white jersey)
8. 2005 leaf century collection pennant patches signature relic/auto /25

more game worn patches (including a nothing-but-the-red-number patch) and manupatches.  and then there are sticker autos.  on the bright side, that leaf century collection card is great, but would be better if it celebrated the 1974, 1977, 1978, or 1981 pennants that garvey helped win instead of the 1984 pennant.

here are the backs:
still more to come...

You're a genius! Great idea for these super thick SS cards.
