What do you guys think of these SNES box protectors?

by Gamerforlife Mon May 31, 2010 1:21 pm

For any SNES collector, it's tough to GET boxes for games, much less keep them in good condition. So I'm looking into something to keep them protected. These look nice, and should allow me to still display my games. What do you guys think?

If easy to open, then okay. Not a bad price. Not sure how yours are stored.
Maybe invest in custom built shelving so boxes don't have to be stacked and damaged?
I built exact to fit sized shelving with space saving laminated flooring material for N64 carts.

Custom shelving is something for me to think about. I've noticed a few people here have done that. You know I only just recently realized that stacking them is not a good idea so I'm going to rectify that

I bought 10 of those cases from the link. Yeah, it's hard to tell from the pic if they are easy to open. I hope they are.

Hope it works out, does make the boxes look clean.

Wow! These things are awesome! They're built just like an SNES box, just slightly bigger and made of see through plastic. So you basically just open the side, slide in your SNES box and then close the plastic protector like you'd close an ordinary SNES box. They're good for other games too. I put my complete copy of Conker's Bad Fur Day for N64 in one, and my complete copy of Sonic & Knuckles in another.

These things are easy to use and keep your boxes safe. Highly recommended for anyone on the forum who has some SNES, N64 or Genesis boxes they want to protect from anymore wear and tear, or just keep in mint condition. You can still display your games too since it's clear plastic. I got ten of these and used them for Super Metroid, Final Fantasy III, Final Fight 3, Megaman X2, Wild Guns, Sonic & Knuckles, Conker's Bad Fur Day, The Adventures of Batman and Robin, Megaman X3 and TMNT:Turtles in Time

On a negative note, they're not big enough to put N64 imports in, so no luck with my copy of Sin and Punishment

Glad they worked out, a pic of N64 game in plastic maybe?
Head spinning, OCD in me now thinking of a more compact version just for N64 carts.

I think these are the same ones, but cheaper:

I on the other hand enjoy the acrylic cases from vga. I would really only use them on your best games as they are expensive.
