The ideal way to protect your sealed games

Post by Gemini-Phoenix on Mon Aug 20, 2007 6:29 pm

I was in my local Tesco recently, and was thinking about how great it would be if I could somehow obtain (Legitimately) some of those wonderful hard clear plastic cases they use to prevent theft. Seeing as quite a few items in my collection are worth quite a substantial amount, I thought i'd do a little extra research...

Now I am sure everyone has at one time or another thought about protecting cartain games in their collection, be it rare or delicate games? Maybe a mint Radiant Silvergun, or maybe Panzer Dragoon Saga or Suikoden perhaps? Even games which aren't sealed but which may be worth a lot of money, such as black label FFVII? And what about those fragile SNES and N64 games which come in cardboard cases...?

Well, these cases are ideal for that sort of thing, and ensures that no damage will ever come to your most valuable games. Especially useful for N64 / Snes / GameBoy games which come in cardboard cases!


I managed to track down the company which makes these products via Google. This is what I found:

(What I believe to be the official manufacturer's site):

http://www.mwsecurity.se ~ The product's themselves are known as "Safers"


And a few other sites selling these products:

http://www.qdtrading.co.uk ~ Sells Dvd sized "Safers" for as little as 0.95. Perfect for various current and previous generation games (Eg, PS2; Xbox; GameCube; Wii; X360)

http://www.medioeurope.com ~ Sells various shapes and sizes

Smile


They do all sorts of products, and specifically for certain games as well, such as PlayStation and Dvd size box's for everything else...




Protection doesn't come cheap though. A set of 72 Dvd size box's (Shown above) will cost you approx. 165.00! That's roughly 2.30 each.

http://www.qdtrading.co.uk/product_info.php?cPath=28&products_id=76

As many of you might agree, this is a small price to pay to protect your most valuable sealed games in your collection! Wink

My PS and PS2-games are only in seal kings...but they are in a box to keep them from damage

A guy over at NintendoAge also sells them. I bought 50 for 38 USD (including shipping from USA to Europe)

I don't know if they are the same though. Here are some good pictures:

Not sure exactly what the rest of you do...but I keep all my games in big boxes that are covered and away from any form of light. My SNES games are all in plastic box protectors and have no weight on them. PS1 games, I stack 3 (at the most) on top of each other, and just leave them like that. Ssame thing for PS2 games, those are the easiest to store, in my opinion. I feel like the boxed games (SNES, GBA, NES, etc) are the most delicate....

How about games in Jewel CD cases like US dreamcast and PS1 games? I find them easy to be damaged to, cracks for example. Are there cases like the NES that are made for CDs? Thanks Very Happy
