Anyone know where to buy card sleeves in Hong Kong?

I wanted to buy 56mmx87mm card sleeves for my Ticket to Ride, but the closest I can get so far are 57mm x 90mm sleeves which, obviously, is 3mm too long. I'm using it now as temporary measures.

I looked up Mayday webpage but the shipping to Hong Kong is just too expensive...
All the Amazon shops I saw don't even accept shipping to Hong Kong.
I even searched TaoBao, there are many Mayday / Ultra Pro / Swan Sleeves being sold there but none is selling the size I required.

Any idea?

I've only found them at Wargames. Maybe they can order the proper size for you.

Maybe you can get help from whoever is getting a shipment to HK soon to tag on an order or sleeves?

You may want to check out Jolly Thinkers (www.jollythinkers.com).
I do remember seeing card sleeves there when I was there a few months ago, but I am not sure of the size. It may be worth it to give them a call.

You can also try Capstone (http://www.capstone.hk/). Their store is on Hennessy Road and they sell Swan Panasia sleeves.

If you call them on 2577 5388, they will be able to tell you if they have the sleeve you are looking for or not (and save yourself the trouble of physically going there in case they don't have it in stock).

You can get them all over the place, where ever they sell those collectible card games. There is no need to buy from boardgame specialist shops as they are usually more expensive. Also there are stores that sell plastic baggies that sell them the cheapest, but these are rarer nowadays.

David: I ordered from Wargames' webpage and got the Fantasy Fight 57x89mm card sleeves today. Thanks!

(However, the sleeves are actually 59x92mm... still making the sleeves much larger than the card.)

I think the best fitted one you could find at Hong Kong is from BG Club.
http://shop.bgclub.com.hk/goods.php?id=144

Though I think the best fitted one is "USA Chimera" (57.5mm X 89mm) from Mayday games, but as you have already said, the postage for ordering directly from Mayday games are very high.

May be we could combine our order to save postage. I need 6 packs at the moment.
