Anyone reseal their sealed games?

Post by JRedmond3 on Thu Jan 31, 2008 7:25 am

Considering the value of certain sealed games I think it would be smart to put another seal over the actual one. I'm sure some of you guys have already done this so I'm interested in seeing pics and knowing what was used.

I don't go to so much effort that I have a machine to add another layer of shrinkwrap, but I do use those thick resealable food bags (Which you can get in any supermarket) to protect some of the more "Fragile" games and Dvd's in my collection - Mostly those which come in tins or digipak's. Tins tend to be easily scratched through the original shrinkwrap, and Digipak's are prone to being dented by handling (Ie, fingernail marks)

I also use these bags to protect my 7" vinyl records and sleeves

Yeah i too, like GP, use the resealable bags, the ones i use are reletively cheap and rearly do help protect the seal as they are quite thick. I have two differn't sizes and put then round all my games as soon as i recieve them. (Check my final fantasy collection for some pics)
Cool

Ah, oddly enough shortly after posting I went and put a few of my sealed games in sandwich bagies. CD ones fit good, for the double like Lunar and MGS I had to cut off the "Zipper" and use 2 of them across both ends. For sealed DVDs/PS2 I suppose I could use that wrap stuff. Also am going to pick up a few of those plastic SNES/N64 sized plastic cases. Guess I don't need a resealer, just something to keep them in decent shape.

Another question, Where could I find a hard plastic case for a double CD case?

I buy my "Sandwich bags" from Tesco, which do various ranges. I opt for the ones which have the hard plastic seal across the top which can be snapped closed and air-tight. These come in small, medium, and large. The medium size ones are ideal for games / Dvd's, and 7" vinyl, and the larger ones are good for 10" vinyl and special Dvd box-sets (Trilogy sets or other sets such as the LE Red Dwarf box's)

i wouldn't go too far as to put another layer of seal. you need to physically run it through a heat gun which would shrink the entire thing and not just the second layer. you risk damaging the 1st seal. just buy a resealable bag on ebay or search through google. you get the same protection without damaging the original seal.
