I've tried both FFG Clear standard and the Ultra Pro standard penny and they both run just a bit too big for the cards. Does anyone have a good suggestions for sleeves that are a bit more snug?

Can you post the actual dimensions of the card?

I sleeved them with FF standard (gray label) and while a tad long, they worked out fine. I did have to discard the white box insert tho as there was no way everything was fitting back in there.

Mayday Games Card Game Sleeves (Green Label) 63.5mm x 88mm work good for me. Sleeves are slightly wide, but haven't been a problem.

They're standard US poker sized (3.5x2.5/89x63.5). KMC Perfect Size fits nicely. They're sized a bit smaller for double sleeving.

Thanks for the info. I had wondered if KMC's would be a good fit, I'll have to go pick some up.

Yes, I can really recommend the KMC PS sleeves. IMO there are no better sleeves out there.

Ultra-Pro Matte Clear 66mm x 91mm fit well, very slightly too big (maybe ~1mm) but the card sits with a uniform margin on all sides (aesthetically pleasing to the eye).
