Penny sleeves that damage cards
Has it also been your experience that a good fraction of the penny sleeves that you buy in a 100 pack have these little tiny "specks" or "knots" inside the pocket where the surface would touch the cards? It is difficult for me to scan what I mean precisely so bear with me.

The problem lies with the fact that when these sleeved cards are placed in a top loader these knots in question press against the card, often leaving a very tiny indentation on the surface as a result. I have tried a couple brands myself, including Ultra Pro, and it seems that anywhere from 10-35% of the sleeves in the pack have these pesky bumps.

Anyone by chance knows what I am talking about?

Yeah, I usually hold one up to the light to see if those indentations are there. If they are, I throw it away and use another one.

I haven't encountered that with Ultra Pro Platinum ones, however their "consistent sizing" claim is bull.
