The person that can answer this is probably Ron Wilson. He made a wallet that was less large. I have a wallet that dates weeeeeeeeeey back that Howard Bamman made, as he made the same for Don Alan. It is thin leather with a zipper on the top and down the side. The left, long side is the fold in the leather, the bottom is open and has inner guide flaps. Wallet is in pocket upside down, card loaded, etc.
Seabrooke's first wallets were similar, with the zipper on top, side and bottom, you left it open at the top and "pretended" to unzip across top.
Fred Kaps found a wallet and Ken Brooke modified it to make what is known as the Kaps Wallet, which was somewhat like the Balducci, in that it had a guide and you found the card in a zippered compartment instead of in an envelope.
Thus you could zip up, put in pocket and repeat right away.
Buma Magic, thru Stevens Magic is coming out with a new idea in a small close up case that has the added feature of finding selected card in a zipper compartment.
This will be a killer new item.
stay tooned... :rolleyes:
