Sleeves

isn't it equi-nox76 ?
I've ordered some to compare them (also some other 100% fitting sleeves), if you want to protect cards as good as possible, your sleeves are the best. Easier to handle are the ones that cannot be closed. But on the other hand your sleeves are much cheaper :wink:

I said it earlier and nobody trusted me :P In Spain, a pack of these are worth 20 euros each. There is a HUGE demand of them, and they are nowhere to be found. Italy has a bigger Vintage tournament scene than Spain and they are also starting to be interested in these packs, as well as the States.

KMC is no longer making these, don't know about the Yanoman ones.

People pay crazy prices for a few millimeters of plastic ?

That's definitely beyond what I could think about.

When those milimeters of plastic are used to protect decks that are worth a few thousands almost any price is right.

Sad news :(


I also think that they are being overpaid, these shouldn't be worth more than 5 US$ a pack. That is, if there were a brand producing these, but both KMC and Yanoman quit making them and there aren't any of similar quality out there.

I do believe KMC still makes them. If you go to their website and ask they'll direct you to nearby vendors who have them/can order them. I would think your best bet is to ask any dealer you know who has an account with KMC to try and order them :wink:

Is there even THAT much sanctioned vintage Magic played where you would want to break out power and such to demand sleeves of this caliber? Proxy it up and when it's not in use, grab yourself some screw down cases and put them there. That much for sleeves is just disgusting and anyone selling sleeves for THAT much should be ashamed or the buyers should be checked for brain damage. 8-|

I just bought 10 packages of KMC Perfect Fits for 4.50$us/each.

I should be reselling these :P I might buy a case from the guy.

I'd buy some but not at $20 a pack. That's too much IMHO.
