Added pics of my odyssey that i bought from 73 games creator Don Emry. He signed it for me too. This is the only one i have ever seen that was given to an Employee by Magnavox. I also have a certificate of Authenticity with it

I don't actively collect Odyssey stuff, but have been very interested since I bought Ralph Baer's book from Leonard Herman. All I can say about your collection is

HOLY SCHNIKES!!! THAT IS AWESOME!

I am very impressed with your Odyssey collection

I plan on buying an Odyssey, but I have some consoles that I need to get first that I will use, if I buy an Odyssey I will hook it up and play it once, then im sure I will box it up and display it.

You collection is nothing short of amazing. Very impressive. The only original Odyssey I have is a boxed unit complete but I have none of the accessories or alternate carts.

Totally awesome that you had Baer sign it.

Thank you both. I have some more pics I need to get taken and posted. I try to keep new discoveries posted because noone else online posts newly found Odyssey items.

That is because you are getting all of them first! :-D

I am a big Odyssey 2 fan so it is nice to see the Odyssey that came before! Can't wait to see more pictures!

What does that paper in the ziplock bag next to the Odyssey say in the first picture?

Any idea how many of the blue Apex cards with the holes are accounted for? I have one and was wondering about its rarity.

no Swedish version yet in your collection?

also the Japanese version is very rare, Nintendo imported a licensed version in 74, well worth trying to collect.

have you seen any foreign cards yet besides the German & NZ versions?

I don't think the Swedish version really exists. All that has been found is one system, that looks homemade and not identical to the one in the ad that supports its existence. I think that's a prototype but maybe one will turn up

 

There is also the Mexican Odisea and the ITT Odyssee which has different cards. I saw an instruction manual in Portuguese once and another seller claiming to have a complete system but I have yet to see anything come of that.  

 

Ive never seen a Japanese one sell but I am well aware of their existence. Im told is just a US Odyssey with an added photocopied instruction manual in Japanese.

I don't think Nintendo would just do a photocopy, already in th 60s they provided proper instructions with their range of toys.

There is also (from what I heard, it might be just BS) a French version of the Standard Export Odyssey.

The difference would be that  game cards are in French only instead of trilingual ones, and that of course the system output in L standard instead of B/G standard.

 

I have never seen one nor saw any pictures of it, so it might just be a rumored version, or it was cancelled before being released in France.
