Card Sleeves Guide (by Tolarian Community College)

I'm currently using some old Ultra Pros and Dragon Shield Matte.

I heard that Ultra Pro stepped up their game and started producing some good quality sleeves.

The video below shares some good insights if you're thinking about re-sleeving or just curious to know what's out there.

i personally never thought that card sleeves could be rocket science Razz. I have perfect fit sleeves, artwork sleves from legion/or regular ultra pro coloured sleeves and toploaders. Card sleeves do have a simple job or me: protection. Some talk about the shuffle feel or if card is bend or not. Some foils, espicially promos do habe a recognizable bend but thats nothing that books can't handle or a toploader for some months. At least in my opinion.

I like the video because it has a good basis for comparison and an actual criteria for why one might be good.

I personally don't like artwork sleeves, or any glossy back sleeves for that matter since they start to get sticky over time. Don't know if design sleeves with matte backs have been invented yet, lol.
