Do the German Kosmos and the American Mayfair cards have the same size?

I am asking because I was thinking about getting the "frame" from the new Kosmos edition anyway (to hold the board in place), as far as I know the hexes are the same saize. Then I saw that you can also get the Kosmos card holder for the resource / development cards. The only problem is that I am not sure whether the cards have the same size, i.e. whether my Mayfair cards fit. I have "Die Siedler von Nuernberg" and know that the resource cards from this game are definitely smaller than the ones form the Mayfair Catan game, so I fear the "Siedler von Catan" resource cards have the same size as the "Siedler von Nuernberg" ones.

Kosmos uses the standard 'half size' cards as most other German publishers. Same size as the ones in the Nürnberg game.

This picture points to: http://www.settlersorganizer.com/

I would also like this, but the shipping costs to Norway are too expensive for me...

Edit: and you can see on this picture that it fits with the MyFairGames cards...

Thanks for the photo.

It looks really good, but as you said the the shipping cost is quite expensive, for the UK it would be at least as much as the card holder itself, so that's at least 40 US$ to get it over here

I agree, and they have changed the design (the sticker on the front) so that it is not that nice looking anymore...

The plastic insert from a packet of biscuits can be used as a card holder for the Mayfair version (Don't know which brands have inserts with the right size, "Bahlsen" is definitely fine). If I go shopping again I'll buy a second box of biscuits for the other two types of resource cards and the development cards. I think these biscuits are about 1.20 GBP (~1.80 $/€), but cheaper ones might have similar inserts.
