Do you really need to use box/case protectors? If you're planning on keeping your collection in pristine condition, then most definitely. Here's why:
- Keeps them dust free
- Protects from small drops
- Helps keep fragile boxes from getting flattened
- Protects from that younger/older sibling that likes to go through your collection while eating a peanut butter and jam sandwich
- Because it makes your collection look all shiny!

Don't forget that you get a free protector with every game ordered, so game on!
