    I can't believe there isn't a poll on this thread.

    I guess I’m the only one. I only have two games but I have both boxes still formed with only the tops unstapled. Machines slid out and box perfectly intact. All packing material inside. Space is not an issue for me and I figure when I move it would be best to pack games right back in to original carton and strap it tight. But from all the posts before me It seems no one does this. I also have all my Lego boxes too ! Maybe I’m silly.

    I think I might broaden my hobby of collecting things and start collecting pinball machine cardboard boxes.
    Less expensive than collecting pinball machines, motorcycles, art, movie memorabilia.
    Get in early collecting these boxes before interest takes off and prices go up.
    Seek out holy grail boxes of machines that were produced in low numbers, and/or of wildly popular machines.
    Imagine owning an original box for a Gottlieb Barb Wire (the last Gottlieb pinball machine produced), or for some of the low production Data East machines.
    As usual, condition is king.
    I'm CONfident I won't turn into a "flipper", in it just to make a quick buck.
    I doubt that I get lured into collecting any re-fakes.

    My husband and son used it to make a super eclipse viewer last summer. B84982D1-A8CC-4635-8720-D6A6BFE612BC (resized).jpeg

    But what will you do when something breaks and you can't get a part? Better to sell now and make a profit.
