How do you store your pre nes game manuals. I use plastic bags from retro protection but a lot of my manuals don't fit.

I use these:

They come in multiple sizes so you should be able to find some that work for you.

Everything is dumped into a file folder, which is stored in a box with the consoles, controllers, etc. Cartridges are in a different box.

 

Were I actively playing with my collection, I would probably have a better solution, but it has been in storage for some 20 years now.

The only pre-NES manuals I have are for the Intellivision, and they are stored in the boxes with the games.  :)

Why just pre nes, what about after nes manuals?

My method is to put them in 2 pocket binder pages aranged alphabetically. Easy to find what you are looking for, easy to add a new booklet or entire page and they stay flat.

If I own the game & have the box, it goes in the box. If I don't own the box (or it was a pack-in game that can't store the manual in its box), It goes in this old plastic box that originally housed a planner I got as a graduation present. That box lives inside my Sega CD storage boxes, as it's the same height/width.

my manuals were put into those old mcdonalds kids lunchboxes about 20 years ago. If those boxes aren't acid free I'm guessing they're trashed now.. icon_sad.gif I should go check!

Back to back in plastic sleeves in three-ring binders.

 

I have several volumes. :)
