Classic TCG card sleeves: The handle and shuffle feel

Experience a solid shuffle feel with decks sleeved in Dragon Shield Classic, distinct from the softer feel of Matte or Brushed sleeves.When choosing the classic sleeves, you'll get a firm shuffle experience, requiring a bit more force, especially during mash shuffling.

New Classic card sleeves may initially be a little slippery, even causing a deck to topple over. However, over time, they develop some amount of grip, and the more they are used, the classic sleeves transition from being slippery to developing a strong adherence, making them the least slippery option of sleeves. This ensures your deck is highly unlikely to topple over.
