Opaque Sleeve Reference Guide


This reference guide is simply that, just a guide for what sleeves I believe are safe to claim as completely opaque. While I may have tested these and found no issues, it is your responsibility for the sleeves that you choose to use for an event. Always double-check with the Head Judge of an event if you are unsure if your sleeves are completely opaque or not. They will be the final arbiter in whether or not your sleeve choice is opaque or non-opaque. If you ever have doubts, ALWAYS USE CHECKLIST CARDS to be 100% safe.
Note: Using Perfect Fit Smoke or Perfect Size Sleeves – Black may or may not make a sleeve fully opaque. If you use these type of inner sleeves, you’ll want to ensure all your sleeved cards in your deck use the same inner sleeve; don’t mix and match smoke with clear.

* Some print runs of these type of sleeves are fully opaque while others are not. I recommend checking with the Head Judge at each event to confirm these sleeves are okay to use.
