I'm gonna pick up some sleeves soon for Dominion and Race for the Galaxy, and I'd appreciate it if someone could tell me just how many cards there are in Dominion. I've seen "about 500" a lot, but I'd like something more specific so I know just how many sleeves I need. That way I can have 'em all ready when my copy of the game arrives. Thanks!

493 cards + 7 blank cards = 500 cards.

33 of those 493 cards are "placeholder cards", which you may want different sleeves for. 25 of those placeholders (for the Kingdom cards) you probably want the same colour for, so you can shuffle them and deal a random set of 10. Or other stuff like that. The other 8 placeholders (for Copper, Silver, Gold, Estate, Duchy, Province, Curse, and Trash) could be also anything, but something clever would be to find some old sleeves and use them. My FLGS has a box of second hand sleeves at 1p each, and I plan to get 3 gold, 3 green, 1 purple, and 1 red for those 8.

I don't think you need sleeves for the placeholder cards. Just let them wear out. It solves the problem of the placeholder looking to similar to the normal cards. I say 460 sleeves.
