I’ve recently started to acquire SNES games, and because they were originally sold in a cardboard box, most of those boxes have been lost or destroyed over time, leading to a massive mark-up on used CIB listings. As a result most of the games I recently bought were cartridge only. But I hate keeping them like that, I need cases to put them in and actually know which is which when I go for one on the shelf.
I found a few stores that sell plastic cases with custom or reproduction artwork, mostly in the US. Do you have other suggestions you like better? Maybe recommendations for non-US local stores?
http://www.customgamecases.com/ is the first one I found. They offer the choice of transparent or black case, which I like better when there is no inside art. $4 per case.
https://www.retrogamecases.com/ is more than twice the price at $9 a piece. But they do Super Famicom artwork.
https://gamecaseking.com/ does US and EU artwork when possible, and horizontal and vertical, for $4 a piece. I like the concept of internal artwork.
I saw other stores selling reproduction cardboard boxes. I think it’s nice, but I don’t have much interest in dealing with cardboard. What about you?
What is your opinion on buying such cases or reproduction cardboard boxes? Or maybe you prefer to do them yourself?
I have an SNES interest here, but the thread can welcome suggestions for any consoles. Oh and also I’m looking for Famicom cases too.
