How to store TI cartridges?

Recommended Posts

I had to pay $50 for mine, IIRC, but it was part of a group of things I bought from the same seller--and included an Exceltek Killer Caterpillar cartridge (that was the expensive item in the lot, as it was something like $500). The rest was a bunch of Milliken Math Sequences cartridges--the 2-in-1 types. I still have to reconstruct one of the management disks for them, as they don't work without it.

I think the cool cartridge thing is a "flip n file".  I had a few of them for floppies way back when...

Wow, what I would give just to have one in my collection 🤗🤗🤗

Me too.  A few years ago a guy was selling some of these on Ebay, he was asking a hefty sum, but that Canadian postage... WOW!  Needless to say, I don't own one!

You can have mine if:

1:  I can find it, and 

2:  USPS is not too costly.

 

 

 

 

I'll pay the shipping and whatever you want for the item itself (within reason, of course)...I hope you find it 🙂

I just noticed this topic.  :)

 

I have six bins full of TI-99/4A games from my collection.  I have more where these came from as well, but they would mostly be duplicates after that.  I have them in nice plastic drawers that fit three columns of TI carts perfectly.  I also use these to store loose carts for other systems and have a whole wall of these..  Half of these drawers may be dupes, I don't recall.  :D

I have around 20 cartridges for the 99, and the only one i ever use is XB.

The rest are stored in a old box, along with a tape player and a tape containing a custom word list for M.B. Hangman on side A, and the TI Basic game Morphy on side B.

If/when i ever get a FinalGrom99, the XB cartridge will get tossed in with the others.

When I picked up my FG99, the only carts I kept were ones that I just really like directly connecting to the TI for sentimental value.  :)  I'm not sure if things have changed, but I always had a little trouble with the Bigfoot ROM on the FG99 cart- when I want to play Bigfoot, I go for the original cartridge.

We're thinking of finding a way to get ArcadeShopper's holder 3D Printed for storage, but for now, we've got them stacked up in our general video game bookshelf.

 does your local library have a 3d printer? Some do :)

We don't know. We'll have to check, next month, when we're not so busy with life.

Actually, I just checked online, and our library does do 3D printing for a fee, approximately a dollar per hour it will take to print the item. What is the standard estimate for 3D printing your holder?

This looks to be the 3D printer they use. Dunno if this makes a difference. But 15 minutes for the printing, at $1 per hour of printing, that should let us make enough to cover our collection in under $10. Thanks.

15 Hours? Jeez, yeah, not likely to convince the library to do that for us, let alone get the money for that. Eesh...

never hurts to ask, you should send them the stl and see how long they say it will take, every printer is different..

Maybe. 15 hours is still around $15 for a single print, but I've pushed my luck with printing stuff at libraries, and I don't want to have that happen here, with the 3D printing.

I bought this rack at a Goodwill many moons ago. I believe it was originally for cd's.

Pretty handy and holds quite a few carts.

I picked up this Laserline cassette tower today on eBay. Says it holds 100 cassettes, so should be closer to 50 TI carts. It spins, ooooo ahhhh! Set me back $40 shipped.
