The 10 best Yu-Gi-Oh! card sleeves in 2020

Make sure your Yu-Gi-Oh cards stay in top condition with these sleeves.

Collecting Yu-Gi-Oh cards is not just about getting the best cards to play with, but also about collecting and showing off. However, if you are going to keep your cards in good enough condition to be worth showing off, you will want to find some good sleeves to store your cards in.

Getting a good sleeve helps protect your cards from nicks, scratches, and all kinds of damages. The damage will only serve to lessen their appearance but also greatly diminish their value if you are looking to sell.

To make sure you choose the best sleeves for your collection, we’ve got the top 10 sleeves to use:

Fantasy Flight Clear Sleeves

Fantasy Flight Clear sleeves aren’t the flashiest you can use, but they are among the most quality ones. It is clear, glossy, and sleek, and thick enough to handle a lot of possible damage. Their durability is above many others you can find out there and are a great way to show off your shiniest of cards.

Emperor’s Key Sleeves

These sleeves may not be the most durable you can find out there, but they are cheaper options for you. They’re sold by many different companies, so you won’t have to worry about getting your hands on them.

For someone who is just looking for a sleeve that will do the job and isn’t worried about the occasional nicks here and there, these are a great option for you.

DEX Protection Sleeves

These card sleeves have been around for a long time and for a good reason. These stretch-resistant and very durable so you can depend on them to protect your cards. They are a real joy to shuffle with, and their clear layer lends great visibility to your cards.

The matte finish on the back comes in black, red, or blue and provides a great grip. The matte is even shinier than most mattes, so your cards will still have some shine to them.

Pendulum Powered Sleeves

These sleeves are made by Konami and are of high quality. Konami’s sleeves are always known to provide solid protection, and these ones come with some pretty cool artwork based on the Pendulum monsters.

While some may not like the look of those monsters, we find that these sleeves provide both style and substance.

KMC Hyper Matte Sleeves

While these sleeves have decreased in quality over the years (after being among one of the best), that doesn’t mean that they aren’t still a really great option.

They feel durable, and shuffling is a breeze with them, even better than the Dragon Shields. The front of the sleeves are clear but not too slippery. They come in a variety of colors, though none of them are very bright. If you want brighter colors, you may want to look elsewhere.

They’re also not too expensive so you are getting good quality at a good price.

Double Dragon Sleeves

These sleeves seriously will last a long time. And we don’t mean as in they’ll be barely hanging in there in a few years, we mean they can still look like new in a few years.

These sleeves look great and shuffle incredibly well. The artwork centers on the Blue-Eyes White Dragon, so they can look out of place in a deck that isn’t Dragon-based, but even then, the artwork is cool enough to warrant their use.

Ultra Pro Deck Protector Sleeves

As of 2020, these card sleeves are considered one of the best, if not the best completely.

As of 2020, these card sleeves are considered one of the best, if not the best, completely. They are thin and provide a tighter card fit, so it just feels good to hold them. There is some slight texture on the back, so gripping isn’t much of an issue, yet they aren’t hard to shuffle. Their price point isn’t bad either, which is always something to be happy about.

Dark Side of Dimensions Sleeves

Regardless of what you might think of the newest Yu-Gi_Oh movie, the artwork on these sleeves is cool. They’re also made by Konami, so you know the quality is there. We definitely wish the artwork was just based on Yugi and Kaiba, but even with that, we still love to look at it.

Konami Official Japanese Dark Magician & Dark Magician Girl Sleeves

Okay, just look at these sleeves? Are they not awesome-looking?

If you can get your hands on these sleeves, you will surely be the talk of your dueling circle. They are incredibly rare, only sold in Japan, and that is matched by their cost. If you have the money to spend and find a way to snag them, these are a great option.

Dragon Shield Matte Protective Sleeves

These are, along with the Ultra Pro sleeves, the top of the line for sleeves. It is a common consensus in the community that these sleeves just might be the best. They are a bit pricey, but they just feel like quality, durable, sleek, and you can tell that care went into making these sleeves.

Cards fit perfectly inside without any sagging, the clear front is among the clearest you can get and makes your rare cards pop even more. They’ll last forever and will ensure your cards stay in the most pristine condition.

The only downside is that they are thicker than other sleeves, which can cause problems with shuffling, but for what they bring, that is well worth dealing with.

A lot of different options are here to fit whatever needs, style, or durability you are looking for. Don’t let your cards deteriorate and really help them pop.
