I am wondering what the best size is for the cards. Can someone help me?
I checked the Mayday cards and those would be 63.5 x 88 but they seem to be too big.

Please share your thoughts

Unless they changed the card size for the 2010 reprint, then the 63.5 x 88mm sleeves are the correct ones. All of GMTs CDGs use the Mayday "Card Game" sleeves (green).

The vast majority of GMT games use the standard "Magic" sized sleeves, the exception have smaller cards such as in Manoeuvre.

My honest advice is to avoid penny sleeves, as they make it harder to shuffle the cards, the corners get snagged. Its a false economy.

Cards by FFG, KMC and Ultra Pro are good quality and cheaper than Dragon Shield, after trying all sorts of brands, I now stick to using FFG sleeves exclusively; good prices. availability, range of sizes and no holograms

Although Mayday did start recently selling penny sleeves, most of their products are on par with the FFG sleeves. For CDGs, I recommend the "Standard" sleeves over the "Premium" ones, as the additional thickness of the Premium sleeves makes them very hard to stack.

I am also using the clear Mayday sleeves. They are quite nice. Although, getting everything back into the box has long since become an effort in futility.
