EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – (December 1, 2010) – Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. (KDE), the makers of the wildly popular Yu-Gi-Oh!

The card sleeves are the first products to be released in a proposed new line of card game accessories from KDE in 2010. The card sleeves, (MSRP $3.99), are the perfect way to show off your collection to other Duelists. The 50-card pack of sleeves is enough to protect most Duelists' Decks.
