    Hey guys,
    Here are some pics of my G1 instruction booklet collection mentioned in another thread earlier today. This is the complete 1984 to 1990 US released collection.

    Setup details:
    Each of them are slipped in individual plastic sports card protectors: "Card Saver II" (They are the perfect size for most of the booklets. I skip this part for the thicker ones like Fort Max). Those are then slipped in 4 slotted card protector sheets: "Ultra Pro"

    hey man, i'd be careful if using those Ultra pro holders.

    A good Majority of my old football/baseball/basketball cards were damaged using that brand of sleeve.

    Most of the time, the card would just stick and ripping them out ruins them. Just be careful.

    The Ultra Pro sleeve slots are pretty loose with the booklets and have no signs of sticking. Thanks for the heads up though. I'll still keep an eye on them.

    Yeah, I had to PM you for the info a couple months ago.

    I forgot but did you have something for the tech specs too?

    That's a great idea. Its better looking than keeping them in their boxes.

    I keep meaning to do something like that myself. Right now they're elastic-banded together and at the bottom of some storage box.

    Tech Specs:

    1- I use comic book sleeves that come with a white cardboard backing: "BCW Pro Comic".

    2- I then use poster putty to stick them on both sides of the backing (Poster putty is great for this as you can adjust the spec a bit after it is stuck on)

    3- Then you just slide the backing in the sleeve and your done :) 

    Takes a while to set up, but it's totally worth it. It makes your paperwork collection safely stored and can still be easily appreciated. :thumb 

    I'll post pics of this later..
