I got a hold of 10 universal game cases recently, and just for my own personal pleasure, I customized one for my Burn Rubber prototype cart.  This is a totally amateur job, but these cases really do look good and are an ideal solution to storing some of the more "precious" loose carts.  A slight mod is required to allow CV carts to fit, but they will fit satisfactorily.  Anyone else customize some of these themselves?

All of my loose CV carts live in UGC's.  Go the "thecoverproject.net" to download art for the cases.  It's been fun making art for the boxes that need it too.

These are awesome!  Great work!!

 

Any plans to make UGC artwork for the new SCE loose carts of Turbo, Victory and Slither from Good Deal Games?

True boxes will be shortly made available by Colecomaster, so no plan for UGC for the moment.

I have two of Crapahute's real boxes.  1 for DK and one for Turbo.  They are FANTASTIC.  Get them when you can.  My Turbo loves living in a real box after being a box orphan for its entire life. :)

YES. I love those clamshell cases. They are great for Coleco and Atari 2600 carts. I wish I could find those cases for my loose carts.

I ran out of space where I keep my loose carts and this would be a good solution :thumbsup: but I don't have a decent way to print quality inserts/labels not to mention I've all but run out of space where I keep my boxed games.  :?  If I dwell on it too long I might find myself buying more digital games and regretting it later on.

The ACE CASE 9 disc "Portfolio" case holds the Atari and ColecoVision carts perfectly.
