Hey all,

 

I am one of those anally retentive people who must have all cards in sleeves.  I play a lot, and everything that I have that is played is in sleeves.  

 

I am presently looking for an option to sleeve up my Hero Cards.  While I know that these are not shuffled, or messed with often, it would make me feel better if they were in sleeves.   I have ran google searches, and haven't found anything.  A Few Ebay posts that are gone, a couple of long dead forum theads, but nothing serious.  

 

Does anyone have a product that will help me out?  I'd really appreciate it.

 

Thanks!

 

Paul

Dig through these forums for a link to a guy overseas who does them.  If I come across his contact info I'll post, but there is already a thread on these forums for these sleeves.  I have purchased them from him and they are great.

alternatively take  a magic 3x3 collecter sheet and cut the seperator of the topmost leftmost 2 chambers out - so you have hero sheets for all your stuff plus your hero. It works fine and only cost 10cent per sheet.

Hi there,

I've bought the hero sheet sleeves from a person over in Thailand (I think). The prices were great and I bought a whole bunch, 4 packs of 40 so cover a bunch of games. My order to him was as follows:

"Hello Sir/Madam,

 
I've been looking around for ways to protect my Talisman and Descent hero cards and came across your ebay auction and then the post on the thaiboardgame.net site. If you're still taking orders for these I would like a price quote and looking into possibly buying them from you.
 
I would like:
  •  4 packs (40 count per pack) of the TBG size#Talisman 4th edition: Character cards + Descent: Hero cards 
  • City: <enter your city>
  • State: <enter your state>
  • Country: <enter your country>
Please send me a quote for the desired amount and my destination and I'll decide from there if I would like to order from you."

email the above to: boardgame@windowslive.com

The total for 4 packs plus shipping to NY was about $12. See if you get anything back from this person, I'm hoping he/she is still producing them.

How well of a fit are the Photo Sleeves for the Hero Cards?  Just curious.  I will probably buy that 100 pack.  

 

Best,

 

Paul

I also HAVE to have my cards in sleeves, my gaming group loves chips and buttery popcorn as game snacks so I pretty much have to make sure my stuff is covered. I emailed that guy in Thailand and he took a while to respond and when he did he said he was sorry but lately he was too busy to get back into his side business of selling custom card sleeves online. 

 

But no fear, I ended up trying these film sleeves, and they work fine. They fit the hero sheets perfectly, they are not sleeves like you would imagine for a TCG card, but more like a plastic wrap that goes around the hero sheet that is made to fit it perfectly.

 

this link is where I ordered mine from.

This is what i do. The heroes come with a plastic ziplock I simply use these as a sleeve while I run a game, then put them back in ziplock when done.

I laminated mine and cut along their cardboard edges.
Works fine - even though I was anxious about the plastic separating (but there hasn't been any problem up to now).

I can vouch for these sleeves. My previous post (#6 back in Jan '13) showed how to email directly. Glad to see they're still making these sleeves and selling on ebay now.
