    Default Which would you rather have?

    "Actiplaque" (it's when the ink in the label degrades. I've even seen this on 32X labels)





    OR

    Label Peel





    Sorry for the bad pics...

    I'd rather have label peel, at least that can be remedied by a little glue.

    Label peel, because It doesn't look like the cart was covered in grease.

    I can't fix either, too much work for a casual collector! Actiplaque would be my choice since it looks pretty good from afar and it still contains the game, no?

    I'd rather the degrading ink labels.

    I think it has more class.

    Stickers/price tags as long as they aren't so old as to be bonded to the label. (so far all goodwill stuff is completely removable) Old plastic price tags are the worst, 2nd worst are metalic video rental tags.

    Label peel is easy to fix so I'd go with that if my games will have to get affected by either and I have to pick one :P

    Degraded labels. Peeling, tearing, wear, cracking, or crushing all look much worse on cases or labels.

    Actiplaque, at least it looks like an age problem and not how it was treated like label peel.

    Neither. But I have a theory about Actiplaque.

    I used to live in a place where our storage space was pretty limited, so we tended to store most of our seasonal and seldom used stuff in an unheated barn. Unfortunately, we made the bad choice of storing my 2600 system and carts in this barn (albeit boxed to protect from dust and mice) for a period of many years. After I rediscovered these lost treasures, I brought them into our new home that has more space for my games. That is when I noticed all my Activision carts had the Actiplaque problem. I have come across some in used game stores that don't have Actiplaque, even though they are similar in age to my degraded label ones. Only difference is I stored mine in a barn where they froze every winter. That is what I think causes Actiplaque.
    It is finished!

    Yep. I stored my 2600 carts in a less insulated and very cold eave, and the same. Maybe that whole "do not expose to extreme temperatures" thing is for real.
