I have made a list of label variations for the 7800 and will be maintaining it.

Check it out here.

I used the images from the Atari Age 7800 section, and added a few of my own. I found a few variations just within the 9 7800 carts I had.
Please if you have something that isn't in the list, let me know, either take pics or scans of your carts and post them to this topic, or send me an email here.

I'm not sure if any 7800 carts have locking circuit board protectors, if you have one let me know!

I noticed on some of the cartridges there are two ridges inside the case, please look for these!

I hope you enjoy and become part of this!

I can't tell from the pics on Atari Age what type of cartridge each game is in, so if you could please go through and let me know, that would be great!

The ones I added were with my camera, if you have better scans of these, please post em here!

I'm finding a bunch of variations on eBay, but the images are too crappy to use.

Just scoured the net last night finding more variations, updated about 25 new entries. XEVIOUS has the most with 6 so far!

Went through my carts.

Found these variations. Not sure if the type of cart matters, but I include it. No time to scan the carts atm tho. Will try in a couple days.

I have Tomcat & F-18 Hornet. Not the best of shape, but I can scan them for you.

So far the end labels that are silver have been the taiwan cartridges. It appears to be a foil with a plastic coating and not the same material as the main label. Double check, because if it's the same material as the main label, then they'd be L1 (if the text is all black)

I have several 1984 copyright text label Pole Position 2 carts, I don't think I ever scanned it though.

It does not have a dust cover. I don't remember what style it was, I'll have to check it again later.

OK, I just checked, it's a type 3 cart. Sorta...

It has a plastic pin glued in instead of a screw.

Updated the list again, please check your carts for me. There are a lot of unidentified cart types in the list. Also see if you have any other variations!
