    What would the Appropriate Penalty for Double Sleeving be?

    I have a friend who would consistently double sleeve (although lucky for him it was always the same graphic sleeve inside a plain white one) for the purpose of keeping his cards from falling out of his sleeves. Now, Double Sleeving is clearly against the Tournament Policies, as it says a card must only be in a Single Sleeve. So, what would the proper penalty be?

    Would it be Marked Cards (risk of a slightly different Design/color showing through the backs of the white sleeves)?

    Would it be an Invalid Deck (because it is in multiple sleeves and each card is only supposed to be in 1 sleeve?)

    What would the penalty be? Would we be able to give them the time to undouble, and apply "tardiness" penalties for not being "ready" to play with a "tournament legal" deck?

    If it is caught before the game begins, if it can be "re-sleved" in the alloted time (3 min.), no problem. Other than that, you have an illegal deck on your hands. (BTW, even if it is corrected, if it is after the 3 minute mark, you would have still ended up with a game loss, so the illegal deck penalty comes out to be the same.
