I wish you could sleeve your cards and doodle on them or something to make them personal and creative, but that can't happen for obvious reasons.

doodle on the card, or on the sleeve? I know some people who either make proxys or card alterations with magic cards (obviously just for casual play) but altering sleeves will prolly get someone claiming rigged deck.

Of course doodle on the sleeve. Like I personally cant draw (Worth Shit) but I would definitely pay someone to draw on a set of white sleeves for me or something. Like Feath(erine). He added in a picture of Bunny-Aichi in our trade :P

I would rather just get fanart drawn on normal paper (can be easier on the artist as well) and see if there is any place that makes custom card sleeves online.

That process sounds much more expensive, but still legit.

expensive, but worth it.and trust me, it could be much worse. the thing some people don't realize.sleeving one or 2 decks isn't all that expensive.but when you have to sleeve a large number of cards, it can get pricey, and time consuming

Enjoy pen marks on the card below the sleeve.

Any of the actually few places that do it, will require you to have a run of 1700+ PACKS of sleeves. That can cost hundreds. I know that's Legion's minimum limit (last I checked)

ouch.well, 1700x50 is only 85000 sleeves.I'm certain I can find a use for all of them.jk.I'm assuming legion only does by 50s, or do they go by 100 like dragon shields?

So, if the king of g invented sleeves, how did tace jelleran get some to show? or did he use the time rift over bollarian acadimy to go back and forward in time to do so?

Nope, he played a game Shadow Game with Picol Dolas, who went to the Alternate Dimension to get them from the past, when they weren't invented yet. And wow it's kind of just a really long time loop you could write a whole book about it, which I read. So yea.

Picol Dolas wouldnt just give them up though.and tace couldn't win against him. he would just omnom all the teal magic and tace would be useless.also, is it bad I'm so used to using there proper names, I had to triple proof read this?

No but you see the Shadow Game was Vanguard and typical Picol Dolas wanted to use his grey magic to move the cards in his deck around so he'd get double crits and stuff but then Tace was like NOPE YOU CHEATED so he got the kick-ass sleeves as a reward and Picol was just like "what ever man" and conjured some Player's Choice.

Question, what's the difference between Dragon Shield Standard and Mini?

Are Mini for games like CFV and Yu-Gi-Oh instead of those big-sized ones like Magic and Pokemon?

Yeah, Mini Sleeves are CFV and Yugioh. :P



Also, Yay, I just ordered some Asaka and Operator Girl Mik sleeves, trying to find some of the Misaki mini Vol 4's.

From my experience, not much. The minis do seem a bit less PVC-y, which I wouldn't rate as a good thing. Though it could just be the particular style of this one.

its primaraly how well they fit the card.oddly, vanguard seem even smaller then yugi.

anyways, many people don't think its an issue, but it can be.large sleeves with small cards tend to lead to warping on sleeve corners.this could be seen as a marked decj, and a dq

I myself use solid color"mini" sized sleeves, which are slightly smaller than the standard size for YGO, and a perfect fit for CFV. Although as the thread creator mentioned dragon shields offer a lot of bank for your buck since it's 100 sleeves for only about 10-12 buck, and they're very good quality. (Although my shop only carries magic sized ones which are a little big. :/ )

YGO cards have square corners. The corners on Vanguard are more rounded. That's why they seem smaller, but otherwise they're exactly the same dimensions.

Wish I could remember where I got these nice opaque gray sleeves at or what brand they are.

The ones I use for my DP deck are getting rather haggard, so should probably replace them at some point.

Though I do hold onto sleeves for a long time. Still use these red sleeves from '98 in MtG decks. Still function, just kind of cloudy.

DP in opaque gray would be neat. Those are basically never even sold anymore. I remember it was either Player's Choice or some off brand but from a much longer time ago.
