I found some plastic sleeves - 2 5/8" (75mm) * 3 5/8" (92mm) - and wonder if they will fit the cards for the game?

I think those sleeves may be little bit larger.I use Ultra Pro sleeves (almost perfect fit for CC) and they are 66 by 91mm.

Thanks, did think that 75mm x 92mm sounded a little weird.

Mayday Games has a size that fits CC perfectly, the Green sleeves. I really recommend them, as I hate having the cards move around in the sleeves on those Ultra Deck sleeves.

Are you thinking of these ones:

They have the same size like the ones I found at ebay 2 5/8" (75mm) * 3 5/8" (92mm).

And the list says it must be them you're thinking of.

I know they're about twice the price, but I recommend Dragonshield sleeves for Combat Commander. They stack well, and they are fairly solid (some of my sleeves are 5 or 6 years old and still as good as the day I bought them) but more importantly, they don't have a ridiculous little hologram blocking the dice and other info on the card fronts.

Cheers,

Jacovis

I used the Green Mayday sleeves and ended up throwing them all away because they were so thin. It seems I messed up and should have got the extra durable ones in that size....sigh.

I still can't find a CLEAR Ultra-Pro sleeve that fits as just the top of the card peeks out a tiny bit. However, the colored sleeves from Ultra-Pro work great. I, for the life of me, can't figure out why their clear sleeves aren't the exact same size as any of their colored ones.

Thanks for all your replies. Been very helpful!
Last question: do you go for clear sleeves for all nations or different coloured sleeves for each nation (German-black, US-green, Russia-red, Brits-blue and so on)?

This is one of the few games where I like having different colored backs. The preference is going to be a personal one. Cheers, and good luck!

Btw, I actually use exactly those colors for those armies.

You don't get off that easy. Which did you buy and where?

Related question:

Does sleeving the CC cards make them even harder to shuffle?

I find that my new cards are like trying to shuffle thin sheets of wood with non of the give and bend that exists in a real playing card. I have noticed a few cards starting to de-laminate slightly on their edged. Presumably as the edges get banged together during shuffling.

I bought three packs (green, black and white) of the 66x91mm Ultra Pros last night and they do fit perfectly.

I ordered 5 x 100 clear sleeves - just to have something to start with.
How many sleeves is needed for the entire Combat Commander serie?

For CC:E (including CC:M) you need exactly 440. That is without the upcoming "The Resistance" battle pack which will add 55-56 cards. For Pacific you need around 220.

Also I believe that clear sleeves are better- I am full of leftover colored sleeves in awkward numbers.
