I remember seeing this back in the day - the AtariAge 1982 Christmas catalog. I don't think it's up on atariage.com but maybe I'm missing it. Great reading.

 

 

Here's one sample page:

 

...btw, gospedde, if you're looking for a challenge, you can't do much better than knitting a replica of the Breakout scarf and hat and selling it for charity!

If only they were Nintendo. Someone sent in a 1990 Nintendo order form trying to buy an NES Advantage controller from Nintendo... in 2004. Where most companies would not bother replying, Nintendo found some in a warehouse and shipped one right off to them.

 

And, you just gotta love Atari making such weird things in the early '80s. A freaking telescope in the catalog! A star chart! And... Swordquest (barf).

Nope, we don't have that on AtariAge. Does anyone have a copy of this that they can scan at 300dpi so I can add it to the "Atari Age" magazine section?

I have the one from 1982 and 1983. I can scan them in tomorrow if you want unless 128bytes already has them scanned in.

Man, I had COMPLETELY forgotten about this catalog until I saw that stupid inflatable kite.

 

What a load of crap!

 

I found some of the comments on that page interesting.

 

Great retort to a comment from an Atari-sucks punk:

 

I grew up with Atari and my generation rules the world and produces the games you now play.

OK, I scanned in the first two pages. Before I scan in the rest, are these OK the way they are or do you need them to be larger so you can resize them yourself?

@Random Terrain - I don't have a copy of the catalog... I just posted a link to someone else's copy on the web when I started the thread. Your scans look good IMHO, you great mighty master of the 'black paper behind the page so the other side doesn't show through' philosophy of life! ;)

Your scans look great, but I would prefer to get the full 300dpi versions of them so I can reduce them myself. If I ever need to resample them at a higher resolution down the road, it's good to have the originals. :)

 

Thanks!

Cool! It wouldn't be hard to make reproductions of the bumper stickers, just from these images.

Seems like these are all of the pages I have. They are huge in file size. I think around 8 to 10 megabytes.

I don't see the order form. That could be the one we used, but it could be around here hidden in a folder and I just can't see it.
