Wouldn't purchase these again. The backing is quite thin and the backing of the cards can easily be seen. The back surface is also quite rough, providing a lot of friction when shuffling. The hologram circle is also raised which adds to the issues with shuffling - the cards just don't slide on each other very well at all. These are definitely a budget option and will do the job, but I'd always rather spend a few more dollars for a much better quality sleeve that provides that superior shuffle feel and a thicker back for extended durability.
