The core will require 5 grey FFG packs (for 250 cards) and 1 yellow (50 cards)
now these are:

FFS05 2 1/2 X 3 1/2 IN 63.5 X 88 MM Gray
FFS01 1 5/8 X 2 1/2 IN 41 X 63 MM Yellow

Both taken from the FFG site so as official as it can be:

If I recall correctly from the Gen Con demo, the only cards that would use the yellow size are the character cards you place on the table to denote your character's current location. There's only five of them. I'm personally thinking about using miniatures instead of those cards, so I'm not planning to sleeve them.

In case it's not obvious, the FFG Grey sleeves for 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 cards are the American standard size = same size as Magic cards.

Although I don't like using penny sleeves because the flimsy larger size makes the cards slide around inside.

so the standard size of the Ultra Pro would be the corresponding size for these cards?

I wonder if you can get by with less if you don't want to sleeve investigator cards that you aren't playing with. If I understand the design, there's a lot of cards you wouldn't be using.

That said, any "extra" sleeves of the standard size can quickly be employed as soon as the first expansion hits, so there's no real concern about buying too many.
