Cheap ps2 cases

With gamestop having the 5/$1 games I've picked up several good games that do not have cases. Is there a good place to buy cases for cheap? would rather have a ps2 / dvd case as cd cases are kind of flimsy.

Just cases or manual plus liner art as well? If you run the yard sale circuit it's easy enough to come across PS2 sports games with clean cases for next to nothing.

Now finding a manual plus liner art is more of a pain in the ass; often people don't want to bother with these and those who do (on ebay for example) charge almost as much as a complete game goes for. I can't tell you how many times it was easier for me just to buy a complete game and sell off the disc-only.

I figured gamestop actually gave all there games cases even if they didn't have the box art for them. You should ask them to see if they have some spare cases.

I am looking for the same thing. Have you checked Craigslist? There is a listing in my area for a bunch of free empty cases, but it's too far for me to go for that reason alone. As far as cover art goes, you can find sites dedicated to high quality printable cover art (front, back, and side.)

I honestly just bought a big cd binder for all of mine. That sale wrecked my collection of complete games.

I have a ton of PS2(and PS3, 360 and Wii) cases. I've been trying to sell them off for $1 each for a while now. I didn't know what you meant by cheap though. If $1 is too much, then maybe we could work out a better deal, since most of the ones I have for PS2 really aren't for popular games or ones that people would even care if they're complete I believe.

My post is actually the last one in the thread(from 9/8/12), so it's not hard to find. Like I said, I have a TON of them.

http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=176892

Normally I just ask whoever wants some of them to send me a pre-paid shipping label and I'll provide the mailer/box for them, since otherwise if it's a larger lot I'd probably just plop them in a flat rate Priority box rather than deal with having to find appropriate sized packaging.:razz:

I have cheapo cd cases I can use, but I like to have cases with spines so I know what I'm pulling without much time.

When I first got them, I had them in some Hollywood Video/Gamecrazy bags. But the one day while going on a mini road trip I saw a rolling rack/gondola with a bunch of racks to it. I knocked on every door around by that rack till I found the owners.

I asked them if they still used it or not. They said they hadn't in years and used to use it when they'd have yard/garage sales.

So I called my dad up, he brought out his pickup and we lugged that bad boy back here.

The one I got looks like this one, only red and twice as long with 3-4 long racks on either side for all of the cases.

Consider though it has to be worth someone's time shipping them to you. I've got 50 NES sleeves I'm donating right now (a $50 value according to ebay) because it gets old being low-balled to the point of not being able to clear $5 or $10.

I usually just let the other person send me a pre-paid shipping label anymore. So much easier. Then you don't hear them gripe about delivery confirmation costs or whatever.

Yeah, I do understand this, I'm just saying I was looking for cheap cases not neccasarily from other people, the yard sale idea is pretty good, just nothing has games in general.

That's alright. You go right ahead and butt in if you want. I still feel a buck each plus whatever shipping would be for a bunch of them is decent. But I do discount it if people just want the cases or the artworks/manuals. Although for $1 each, why not just grab everything and then part out the rest to someone else who might need the manual or whatever?

All I know is that the furnace repair/cleaning people couldn't stop gawking at my collection of cases when they were here last year. I guess they thought they were all full games. If they were, I probably would have no problem selling them. But some folks expect a detailed description down to the last micron on used game cases as far as condition, stickers, scuffs and other imperfections are concerned.:roll:

It's like the dude that expected me to go 35 miles to sell him 20 PS2 cases to use as DVD cases for $.20 each.:lol:

lol, yea I am sure that we both get similar questions about descriptions.

I wouldn't argue that what you are asking is reasonable. I know that if there was a case on that list that I needed, I would hop on it;) (mental note made for future reference).

That's a good idea actually, I never thought of messaging the other party with the weight and having them calculate it to settle shipping quibbles. 8-)

I'm actually considering doing a Gamestop and gutting all of the PS2/PS3/360/Wii cases from sports games and chucking the artworks and stuff and just selling the cases, since I doubt there's anyone who really wants/needs those things usually.

Yeah. I've been doing that for a while now actually. Although most times they just guesstimate the weight and ship out a label with my old school payment of choice(cash or USPS MO).

Considering I had someone bitch at me at one point over the difference between getting Delivery Confirmation at the PO versus paying for it through Paypal(which I don't use due to the fees) I just figured at least this way they could get it for $.17 or whatever it is that way and save a few pennies and not have to gripe at me about it.:booty:

I had a spare DVD spindle that at one point held 50 DVD-RWs on it. I just used that to store the games I bought. I've been playing games for so long and have a nice collection of much rarer items that are more deserving of what little shelf room I have left. I'm not exactly proud of any of the junk I bought during the sale, and they're all scratched anyway.

this! honestly that would be a smart move IMO, the chance someone wants the insert for NBA 2k5 is beyond slim.

I feel the same way about the shovel ware cases I have for wii. Thankfully I ended up with only a handful of sports titles when we cleared out the store, but inserts for Smackdown vs Raw 07? who really needs that?

reading about the shelf you ended up with makes me wish I would have grabbed those from the store when it closed:drool: thats what I get though for not having enough room in my apartment!

Can someone make a Katherine cover art for PS3 and a Catherine cover art for the 360?

I'm having a tough time finding one. I just want to make a reversible cover with each of the girls on one side. Thanks ahead and sorry to thread steal/jack.

I barely had enough room in my basement doorway to get it down the back steps and into the basement when I finally got it back to the house.

Thing is, the same family also still has one of those 3-4 sided DVD racks(like the ones you see with DVD's spring loaded into in WalMart) sitting in their side yard. Only problem is that thing has been exposed to the elements for so long and I think part of it is made up of fiberboard/plywood, so it's probably warped by now.

The one I got is actually worth around $400-500 when brand new and aside from a few paint chips missing on the shelves it looked pretty much like new when we got it here.

It most certainly is warped by now I imagine (you live in PA from some of the comments I have read, I gather). Makes you wonder how they got them in the first place, and why leave them outside.

the video store left 90% of the racks (both metal and the fiberboard you mentioned) in the actual fucking store. It closed 3 years ago, and I can drive the 60 miles from where I sit to the town it was in and the things are still there.

come to think of it, there is probably still a box of empty PS2 cases in the back room. couldn't snag em at the time because of upper management being there the last day.
