I double sleeve my decks. Will your deck boxes work for me?

Are Monster Sleeves safe for my cards?
Monster Sleeves are made to protect your cards! Our sleeves are made from high caliber Polypropylene and are PVC and Acid free.

Why should I sleeve my cards?
Whether you are a casual player or tournament-bound, it’s important to keep your cards safe and protect them from damage. Monster sleeves are tournament legal, high quality, PVC and acid free and proven to protect your valuable cards. You spent the money on them, so make sure to protect them!

How do you shuffle with sleeves?
Similarly to how you would shuffle cards without sleeves, it is important to stay away from riffle or bridge shuffling. Monster sleeves protect your cards from damage but rough or careless shuffling can damage your sleeves, which would make them undesirable for use in tournaments.

Are Monster Sleeves tournament legal?
Yes, Monster sleeves are tournament legal, but be sure to check official tournament rules to ensure there are not specific regulations for that event. In most major tournaments, sleeves must be non-marked or broken for game play.

Do you need sleeves to play in a tournament?
While you do not technically need sleeves to play in tournaments, most players choose to use them to ensure that your deck remains uniform and that no single card can be spotted from the deck. This is especially important for double-sided cards or cards with different back designs.
