I am looking for some card sleeves that will fit in 9 pocket sleeves. I bought some that fit in toploaders but are just a little too big for the album pages.

Ultra Pro used to have them in the platinum series but they changed their product line a little so it is no longer clear to me which one is right for me.

Yeah, those work in the Ultra Pro pages and albums. No idea what possessed them to make the slightly wider variety.

The one in the photo is from the older batch, I had them too, they are perfect for album pages. I will show you (when I get home tonight) the one I have that looks similar but the packaging is slightly different.

These are the ones I am using and they fit fine in all my album sleeves.
I tried to get a good close up on the stock number in case that is of use to you.

@OutlawNinja please check out the ones I got, I think they are different. The one you sent through was made in 2008, my one made in 2014... I hope the Aussie sellers are still selling the old stock coz I want to buy a bulk lot. Where do you get yours?

I’ve always used ultra pro sleeves and never had any trouble with them fitting in a 9 pocket page. However, last year I noticed that some of the packs I purchased from my local card shop were a little snug when I used them with my cards. I’m talking a 1 or 1.5 mm difference in width. I thought I was going crazy and went back to the shop and they compared them to ultra pro sleeves from a more recent delivery and noticed the same problem!! So obviously there is or was a quality control issue.

Hi Brian
I’ve been using these to sleeve all my old sets and a couple of new ones when the wife isn’t looking. Got fed up with Ultra pro ones. These are from Germany but they do the trick (helps I’m in the UK). I’ve just used 1400 of them in ultra pro pages
Cheers

How much do these ones cost?

I am also looking for a lot of smaller sleeves for Japanese cards.

I can’t remeber to be honest. Got them off eBay a couple of years ago.
Guessing about £1 a pack or there abouts. They do Japanese size too (62x89mm).

Looking at ultimateguard.com, bring up the card sleeves -classic and press the blue info ‘i’, it’ll show places in Sydney where they’re sold (apparently). Hope you get what you want mate :):thumbsup:

I am going to meet with my friend Kev, who runs the Card House on the coast, will let you know what he has to say.
