Protecting Game Boxes?

by Konacha Mon Sep 30, 2013 6:16 pm

Hey All,

I currently am trying to figure out a way to preserving my game boxes I have. I have a few complete set of games (such as Pokemon Silver and Zelda: OoT Gold). Now the box for Pokemon Silver is still in great shape while Zelda.... not so much. I want to know of someway I can store these boxes and still display them. I've seen people using those protection cases that stores have and want to know if they do work in protecting game boxes from damage (also where can I buy them or for that matter what are they called?) or should I be looking into something else.

There are clear boxes you can get that you slide the game box into. I have my GB stuff in them, but I can't remember where they came from offhand as someone else got a lot of them with me.

That's the one I was thinking of. Brain fart on my part.

Ah thanks, this is perfect. I did do a search and didn't see anything but I wasn't really sure what they were called.
