I want to buy sleeves for Netrunner. But the Mayday Games green premium sleeves are out of print:

http://maydaygames.com/premium-card-sleeves-50-pack-63-5-mm-...

It was the only sleeves I knew about. I also know about ultrapro, but I find them expensive:

Where in the world have you guys boughten your sleeves ffs?

The mayday ones are 63.5 x 88mm, and the ultrapro are 66 x 91mm. What in the world is the heck about these mesurements? Please how in the world can I be sure that these sleeves will fit my Netrunner beloved precious cards?

I want those robust sleeves like the ones I linked you. Thanks!

I use Fantasy Flight sleeves for my Netrunner cards. They're slightly too tall, but they're a great thickness and are a good price.

On the UltraPro sleeves, just get the "Standard" size. They will fit perfectly.

I use Dragon Shields on my constructed decks and Ultra Pro on the rest of my cards that I don't actively use.

Are Netrunner cards the exact dimensions of MTG cards?

Try http://boardgamer.org I've made 2 orders in the last 1.5 weeks, shipping isn't bad (I bought 25 packs and the shipping cost was about $25). Mind you, I never made a small order there (smallest was 20 packs), so I'm not sure if its worth it for a couple packs. Took 1 week from ordering before it arrived (ships from Taiwan)

Ultra Pro Penny sleeves aren't that expensive, I think I bought 15 packs for about $20 including shipping on ebay.

Same here. I buy these from my local store for $1.20 per pack of 50. They're as thick draw typical "premium" sleeve and hold up well for the deck builders I own and have worked fine for Netrunner. They don't have the level of quality control that the FFG or Ultra Pro have which ensures every sleeves is the same to the nanometer, but the variation isn't enough to matter.

I think the 66x91 ones are made for MtG. Ultrapro also has the standard sleeves measured 64x89 mm I'm using these for my ANR cards, fit great and feel great.

Where in Canada are you? We do free local delivery to the London area, but also have flat rate options and tend to work out cheaper shipping for very small items.

We also stock FFG sleeves and Dragon Shield, and hope to have the Ultra Pros sorted out soon enough.

I just purchased 25 packs of FFG Standard and my heart sank when I pulled my first sleeve out. The UltraPro sleeves I've been using are much heavier and fit the cards like a tailored glove. The FFG sleeves limp over when you're holding one and are almost a full 3/16" long on the end. (vs the edge of the card, not the advertised size) The package reports them as 63.5x88 mm but my micrometer lists them at 66.2x94. That's nearly a quarter inch longer than advertised. (.23")

UltraPro is also off but much better with their listed dimensions. 66x91 translates to 65x90.5mm

Dragon Shield (reportedly made by the same company as FFG) comes in at an unreported size but measures out at 66.2x91.2mm. Unfortunately, those came in so badly cupped that they actually curled the cards I put in them. The edges were sealed horribly bad too. Dragging your finger across the edge of the sleeve you can feel a distinct lip at the seal.

Here are some sample shots:

FFG Standard (Grey) vs UltraPro 66x91


Closer view of tops.


FFG overall fit.


UltraPro overall fit.


Cupping Dragon Shield vs UltraPro.


Bad edges on Dragon Shield.



I'm not trimming 1250 sleeves. I get they are just sleeves and there are allowed tolerances, but this is unacceptable. The FFG sleeves will probably go back...much to my chagrin after debating so long on what to purchase.

I was really hoping to get Legendary and a few others sleeved before the weekend too.

Drat.

If you live in Montreal, you should go here: www.levalet.com or here: http://www.espacejeux.tv/

Actually, I've just made an order for 1200 UP sleeves at Espace Jeux for 54$ taxe included. 4.50$ for 100 deck protector of Ultra Pro. I think it's 3$ for 50 FFG sleeves (not the ones with the cool pic on them).

Hope that helps

Phil
