I just bought a munch of Mayday sleeves and there seems to be what looks like condensation on the inside of the sleeves. This makes it very difficult to open the sleeves to put the cards in, making the sleeving process taking ages. I often have to blow into them to get them opened up. Are they usually this difficult to use or is there something wrong with my sleeves? Or am I just doing it wrong?

I sleeve every game I own and use FFG or mayday specifically. This is not normal in my experience. I'd sit them out and let them dry out before putting cards in.

Put the sleeves in the sun for a few hours and that will get the condensation out. It will also warm the sleeves up so it will be easier to put the cards in.

Does that actually work? Becauase sometimes my Swan Panasia sleeves are a pain to get cards into.

well down here in sunny Florida it sure does. Just remember once the cards are in they will cool down and it will be hard to take off the sleeve.

It's a pain when that happens. You can open them easily if you blow forcefully onto the top of each sleeve while holding it with both hands.

Not the most sanitary method, but it works.
