Does anyone have a spare cartridge shell they'd be willing to part with?  I got a Centipede Atari cart on eBay, but the outer shell is smashed to all hell.  The plastic posts inside are busted, too.

 

I *could* probably super glue it back but it's missing several plastic pieces.   

 

The game works super in my TI, but I'd rather not have the bare board sticking out.   ;)

 

Thanks!

 

(edited to add bit about the inside posts)

Gave mine all to Greg at arcadeshopper. Maybe if you order something from his awesome site he'll slip in an empty shell?

depending on where you are hit up the thrift stores and goodwill we just found 25 TI carts at the Portland goodwill for 2$ea if you REALLY need a shell I can send you a TI one pm me the atarisoft carts may or may not fit correctly as they designed their own shell.

Note, he has an Atarisoft board, which is why he wants an Atarisoft case. IIRC, some of the Donkey Kong and Centipede cases have a screw under the label, making a board swap pretty easy. The others are all glued together and usually crack in weird ways when opened. . .

Yeah, this darn thing is busted pretty good- on this particular one I noticed that the hole for the screw was snapped as well.  I'm not sure what in the world happened to this poor cart!

 

Attached is pic of my Centipede board with part of the plastic posts still attached.  The game runs darn good but I have to put it in a static bag when i'm done. ;)

 

I have a friend that offered to 3D print me a case so i'll see how it goes and post pictures when I get it back. :)

 

Thanks all as always for your help!
