I was thinking the same. My point is that if your in the business to "make" repro's it wouldn't just be the label that you are making. It's probably an Atarimax cart with software on it, or recycled chips and boards slapped into a reused housing. I believe that if the cart is original, yet the label couldn't survive 25+ years then making a replacement label isn't a bad thing. But I also believe that it should be marked and communicated that it is a repro-label.
Here is my example. I have two original Jawbreaker carts, one missing the label. I've almost got the paper (gloss and semi) and colors down to remake almost any label. But the copy has a distinguishable mark, etc.

I guess if you don't plan to re-sell it's ok

I disagree, slightly. I'm not looking to slap an avery label on my cart with hand written indentifier on it. I'm looking to reproduce the label. This occurs in EVERY other collectible market. Look at collectible gas station pumps, they get refrubished and have signs/decals made since they are no longer available. That is what we called "restored" back to original condition. Why are carts any different? The label isn't the only thing that "makes" the cart. A clean housing is very important, without marks and dents, etc. and the chip must be the original chip and board in my opinion. Restoration is an art form in and of itself. People take pride in it.
The post was brought back from the dead.
Just to clarify, making new labels, boxes, and housings is fine, as long as it is identified. Today;s processes and products are superior to that of the 1980's. It's much easier to recreate something that can easily be passed off as an original.
I see that occurring now heavily in the 2600 market.
