    Smoothest sleeves I have ever played with

    How much did you get them for ^
  3. I traded for them. I think 2 Darkrai-EX promo and a Mewtwo-EX promo. I might have added a Rayquaza-EX promo as well, but I can't remember.

    Monferno Rule #1: is that you gotta have fun

    Teal KMCs, White Non-Glare Pro Mattes, or Pink Dragonshields. Never anything else. Ever.
  5. KMC's are ok, but they get dirty fast, and then they stick together. I've actually become quite partial to green, red, and blue pro-mattes. And I'm one of those people that uses the fancy Japanese sleeves most of the time (I used the subway master sleeves for nats).

    Generally, I use green UltraPros, but I've got the Skyla Sleeves sitting with my collection for if/when I top at Nats or go to Worlds. Not for the usual reasons though, I just like her as a Gym Leader.

    A great thing about them is that they can double as a distraction if I play the right people. :p

    I used japanese sleeves for nationals and I hated them. White pro mattes, never going back.

    Gelatin So soft and jiggly.

    Dirt shows up way too clearly for me and my greasy American fingers to bear so I prefer the Black matte over White.

    I use pro-matte for almost every tournament, but it's nice to use something prettyful and expensive for Worlds.

    And yeah, white really shows the dirt. Tables are not always the cleanest and I CBA to use a mat.

    I've been using plain blue sleeves for a while but they are falling apart. Any ideas where I can get an above-60 count of cool sleeves for under $10?

    In your dreams?

    Nice sleeves aren't cheap. Especially when imported.

    How mcuh would they seriously be? If they're too expensive I will just get more off TrollandToad.

    Does anyone know of a place to get custom sleeves?
    If so how much would they cost?

    Depends what you want. Japanese sleeves can cost anything from $15 to $100 for a sealed set of 60.

    Custom sleeves would be illegal for tournament play. Unless they were completely plain, in which case . . . why bother?

    A quick search reveals a ton of people asking the same question for various TCGs. The answer seems to be that they only places that will make them have a minimum order of 1,100 packs of 50 sleeves.

    It's so annoying how they have packs of 50 sleeves and not 60. There are some really cool bacon sleeves at the store my League is at but they come in packs of 50 and they are $5 a pack. I guess I'll just get a 100 pack of blue sleeves off of T&T for $5.:(

    The bacon sleeves are also illegal for tournaments.

    If you are getting plain sleeves go for Ultra Pro ProMatte. Not at all expensive and very good.
    tokyovampire and David like this.

    Players Choice Sleeves are excellent and are $5.99 for 60. I recommend the Purple ones.:D
