I purchased the Mayday 70mm x 120mm card sleeves like 2 months ago and now that I'm trying to insert the large cards, I find that both the cards and the sleeves are exactly 70mm x 120mm. Ergo no fit.

Does anyone have any large sleeves that did work?

Ouch I bought it too 70x120 Mayday and mini euro ( red fantasy flight )
thank you for heads up, just wondering if anyone tried the Swan Prem Card 70x120 ?
Swan has Premium Card 80x122 but 10mm extra is quite a lot ...

Did you get the premium (75 count) or standard (100 count) of the tarot sleeves? At the time I purchased I only found the premium, I'm curious if the standard ones fit but I'm not yet willing to shell out money to try it..

I have the Mayday 70 x 120 (yellow) that i bought for War of the Ring and they seem to work fine. Nice tight fit but not too tight you are forcing the card in.

Are you using the 75 pack or the 100 pack? I've got the 75 pack and bent a card trying to squeeze it in

I'm trying out the sleeves from Miniature Market. I've never used their sleeves before so I don't know what to expect, but MM is a great store and their prices are low. Iirc, $2.30 for a 50 pack of tarot sleeves.

I tried maydays too, to small. I tried ultra pros, and they fit perfect. It's an issue with mayday, they're too small for Arcadia quest also.

I usually don't like ultra pro because of their dumb little foil logo but in this case I went ahead and ordered a pack. Should be here Sunday. I think I'll just put the logo part on the back of the cards and maybe I can ignore it then.

I agree it's Mayday's fault. The card size is listed at 70mm x 120mm, why would you make your sleeve the exact same size? How is that even logical?

Slightly too small,or too big sleeves happen sometimes with mayday. It's fairly rare and if you usually you can get them to send out replacements.

Can confirm the same problem. I can get a card into the sleeve, but its really jamming it in and I'd probably ruin some cards on the way.

I ended up using Ultra Pro. They fit perfectly and you don't see the backs of these cards so I can hide the dumb foil logo.

"Games Plus Products"

I've not used them before and they still haven't showed up. MM has cheap shipping, but you need to be patient.

What about the master enemy scrolls? Are there any sleeves on the market for them?

No sleeves out there, but you could do a 5"x7" toploader

These inexpensive FFG clones work great for me:

That's the "penny" variant. They also sell a much thicker (100 micron) variant which i use for Elder Sign:

They fit perfectly.

So good pricing on these sleeves from Miniature Market, but their low-cost shipping option is Fedex, which is the worst shipper in the known galaxy. Over two weeks to get my sleeves (from Indiana to Washington state). Fedex tied my purchases to a feral cat and gave it only vague instructions on how to find me. Cheap though.

...thinking of laminating these instead of trying to find a sleeve. Of course, I can't "undo" that once it's done. Thoughts?

I don't know of any available sleeves right now. But there was a KS for Paladin Card Protectors in various sizes including, I think, a match for the AI scrolls. I think 70x120mm (tarot) is the right size?

Should all be available in approximately 3 months.

I laminate my board game materials all the time, especially if there's no proper card sleeve for it. As long as you get all the bubbles out it looks great afterward.

If you don't want to risk your actual materials, you could scan them in, print on card stock and then laminate that.
