    Default Storing Gameboy Color/Advance games in pages?

    I currently have my 150 or so loose GBC / GB games stored in large freezer bags - about 40 per bag. Needless to say this is cumbersome and makes it impossible to find the one I'm looking for. As a former sportscard collector, are there any clear plastic "pages" available whose pockets will hold something like these? I've seen pages for everything from coins to POG's and much more - has anyone ever tried this idea?

    If I can find something, I'm going to try to do the same for my Lynx games and maybe even my Game Gear games too. Sure would be nice to whip out a binder and find my games stored alphabetically in 3-ring pages....

    Thanks!

    The pages designed for baseball cards will hold Gameboy and Gameboy Color games very well. You could fit Gameboy Advance games in them too.

    For some reason, the thought of storing games in card pages inside a binder that could easily have heavy items placed on it makes me uncomfortable.

    Well, obviously the binder would have to be stored upright on a shelf with the rest of the games or you are right - it could have a really bad turnout. I think I still have some of my old sportscard pages somewhere, so I guess tomorrow I'll see if they work.

    I'm interested in something similar. Not only can I never find some games, but I lose them in my room, too o_O

    This might not work for people who have a lot of games since it could still take up quite a bit of space. For hobbyists or people like me who don't really collect hand held items, yet have a few games, it makes perfect sense.

    I use a three ring binder and baseball card pages. It works fine. You just have to make sure to keep the binder upright, as was already noted.

    It works wonders for GBA carts as you can keep two games per single baseball cart slot. They actually fit better with two as opposed to just one.

    I was at a Play & Trade, and a guy used a three ring binder and baseball card pages, and it worked really well. I think I am going to go this route too. Having an entire box of Game Boy carts to look through gets old really quick.
