I'm looking for 8 of the white cardboard game boxes that most Ti99 software came in, in decent condition, for a reasonable price
Pm me if you have some
Thanks

Give me your address and pay for shipping.  I have a bunch all packed up and ready to go.  As a bonus, they also have the plastic inserts.  I have a picture of them around here somewhere.

 

I think these might be the older style boxes (without the plastic insert and with the flip open cover), and some tan colored boxes.  If I cannot find the pictures, then I will just reopen the box.

If Steve has what he needs, I'll take em.

This is Steve's thread though, so if he needs additional boxes, I'd say that's where they should go first.

If there ends up being any extras between the two parties, I would be happy to trade for some white boxes.

Thanks. :)

OK, here are photos of the boxes.  They are the old style with the opening flap (with the booklet in it).  Are these 99/4 style boxes?

I will give them to anybody that pays for the shipping.  I just can't throw these out.  And if you guys convince me that it's ok to throw these out, then I will do so without guilt.  Set me free!

Ha, I was just reading the text inside the box.  "© 1979", and my favorite part, "Texas Instruments Command Modules are not cassettes, cartridges, or recordings."  Funny, they seem an awful lot like cartridges to me.  In fact, weren't they renamed "Solid State Catridges" later on?

And yes, they are 99/4-style boxes, Darryl.
