Re: Selling my entire Game Boy collection

There's an hour left. You'll probably get at least one sniper. You could get a few bidders in the last 30 minutes, and I wouldn't be surprised if a couple of people bid in the last 60 seconds.

I want to buy Universal Game Cases, if you have any spares please PM me! I'm looking to only deal with members that have good BST feedback on this forum.

Curious how long have you had the games in those Chinese plastic cases?

I've wanted to use them for my games, but i've never been able to find out what kind of plastic they are made of. Kinda bothers me not knowing. Kinda like putting a nice comic in a cheap comic bag that doesn't list what its made of.

Certain plastics off gas and can cause the contents inside them to yellow, or worse. Your listing says you checked them monthly and quite a few of your games are yellowed. Did you notice any changes long term with the cases?

I had the cases for about 2-3 years I think, and I haven't noticed anything changing to the cartridges...
The yellowed ones I got them like that.

To be honest, I haven't noticed anything changing to the carts since I have them. I supose the coloring gets done in the first 10-20 years, but I don't expect any coloring to happen after so much time...

I wonder if the bidders were connected to some company that sells games, like LukieGames or others like that. I imagine more than individuals they would pay for lots, and you can't always tell ahead of time if the account is a store account. I know I sold lots to "people" and when I shipped it was addressed to LukieGames.

Cool, Might buy some.

I noticed the guys at MLiG use them now too. I'll ask them too. Maybe they tracked down the plastic used.

I have no idea yet. But many people buy lots to sell them piece by piece and make a profit out of it...

The only thing that I have noticed to the cases that I bought is that they have a specific smell of fresh plastic. More intense than in other plastic cases.
