Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En card sleeves.

Card sleeves (Japanese: カードプロテクター Kādopurotekutā "Card protector"; Korean: 카드 실드 Kadeu Sildeu "Card shield"; Chinese: 卡套 Kǎtào "Card sleeve") are protective plastic covers used to prevent cards from getting bent or scratched.[1] Most card sleeves are made by third-party manufacturers, though Konami distributes a few styles of their own sleeves.[2][3][4][5]

If a player uses card sleeves, they must all be the same so their cards aren't marked.[1]

In the OCG, it is possible for a player's Deck to contain cards with different backings. In cases like this, it is mandatory for the player to use sleeves to prevent their cards from being marked.[6]

In video games, card sleeves serve no practical purpose and only serve as customizable features.
