I sorting out my collection and i am a bit stuck with the paperboxs.

Do the shiny label carts go with the shiny cover paperboxs? and the same with the matt ones.

Also is there a difference between the paperbox manuals, or are they the same.

Finally did they do a French only version of them since i have a No.10 Golf with a Paperbox Manual in only French or is it only selected carts.

shiny boxes came with carts with shiny lable and "made in USA" printed on them. "Made in USA" is also printed on the manual that came with them.

matt boxes came with the matt lable "made in France" and "made in France" manuals.

don't know about the french variations, but I had several as well, so most likely all/most carts exist with french only manuals as well (probably only the matt ones)

Many thanks, manopac.

That was also for me a question to make here.  Roll Eyes


I suppose none of 17 paperbox versions were made, but... is that correct?
Shiny paperbox: 1-13
Matt paperbox: 1-26
French matt paperbox: 1-26
Radiola matt paperbox: 1-26

as for the shiny: it's pretty save to say that 1-13 were released (I have all those and haven't heard about higher numbers)

matt versions:  I for one have yet to see a matt 2, it's fairly sure that no 17 has been released as a paper version ... all others up to 26 exist

what I am not really sure is the instruction versions for number 9, I have a "printed in the US" manual in englisch, but none for the matt version

oh, and I have no idea about the radiola or french ones :-)

I always find the shiny and matt carts are easiest to tell apart as the arrow is a different colour.

Like manopac, the only thing I have shown as a gap is a matt number 2.

Yes there are French only manuals and are black covered, I have 5 like that.

The paperbox Radiola are French only of course.

Never seen any paperbox number 17.

Actually you can take a look at the screen shot for my spreadsheet:

I am beginning to think, that number 2 sold very bad ... a 2 in plastic case is harder to come by than most other games, so maybe no matt ones were produced as lots of shiny ones were still left ... but it is still a mystery why no 17 in matt box was produced ... maybe the other ones up to 26 were released at the same time and 17 was delayed until paperboxes were no longer produced ? (something that speaks for this theory is that 18-26 have the manual from the plastic version and not a black cover manual)

Huh? Did you know:
Philips repackaged paperbox games in plastic cases ... they took the cart, the manual and put an index-card into the box and a one-page front-inlay with the front-graphic from the plastic-style carts ... you can tell the difference when you see it in a picture as those have a small white border ... I was lucky and found two of those once :-) (9 and 12)

17 to my knowledge has ever existed. Shiny and Matt paperbox exist and there are White paperboxes out there, just to make things even more complicated, I have no idea why white paperbox's exist Huh? I have a complete collection of paperbox except 17 and I own about 3 Radiola paperbox, these are difficult to find, maybe a Radiola paperbox 17 exists? (Check the Radiola rarity guide there is a section in there regarding paperbox Radiola).

I don't think that a radiola paperbox 17 does exist, as it would not really make sense ... do you have a matt 2 ? 'cause that's actually the only question that's open, it was already confirmed that all others exist ...

I have two unusual paperbox versions, where the box has no number on the spine. Anybody else got some of these?
