I am sure I am not the first person to see such a box, but this is a new one for me and I am leaning toward liking it.  My guess would be this came later in the TI time-line as a way to simplify packaging by dropping the plastic inserts and only using paper board.

As utilitarian as game and program boxes go, but I too think they have their own brand of charm. :)

Like this one, also with flap (and pretty rare, I guess).

I always thought that the boxes with book-flap and the little window on the side for show title of the cartridge are the early ones used for TI-99/4 (not A) version. Also learned that booklets early version have the black strip on the front cover instead the early versions but distribuited in the TI-99/4A years have no book-flaps boxes and the black strip contain text. 

here you can see a nice gallery with descriptions:

Yes, the boxes with the flaps were for the 99/4. Note that you can also see the cartridge itself through a hole in the spine of the box on many of them.

 

The Compact English Trainer is one of the cartridges I'm still trying to get a copy of. . .

they're super cool boxes- i think I sent the last of mine to Owen (maybe) because even as cool as they are they just clutter up my hobby area.
