Just wondered, how do you guys store your Vectrex overlays? Ideally I'd like a binder with individual sheets but I'm finding it hard to get something suitable!

In the original boxes. I have made my own paper sleeve to replace badly damaged or missing sleeves. A collection of orphan overlays could be stored inside one of the clear plastic box protectors or I've also used the clear plastic bags which are designed to hold comic books including using the backer board to maintain rigidity.

I know this is old, but I wanted to mention how I store extra overlays.  I store extra/third party overlays in 6 1/2 x 9 1/2 catalog envelopes from Office max.

I cut them to the same length as standard original envelopes and then cut out a half circle on the side without the seam at the opening like the originals had.

These are a tiny bit snug but work pretty nicely.

 

A box of 100 was around $16 I think.

FYI, I started a topic in the marketplace on this. If anyone wants some of these I'll make them and sell them as 10-packs and ship 10 of them to you for $12.50 ($10 + $2.50 shipping). I'll send up to 3 - 10 packs and only charge the $2.50 shipping. Just PM me, please. Or make them yourself! Just protect those overlays! :)
