I've recently discovered these posters were a thing when I bought six of them on eBay and did research to discover there are a total of 10 of them, meaning I now really want the last four. I'm looking to buy the ones for Warlords, Centipede, Missile Command, and Star Raiders. I'd like them to to be in like new condition, preferred if tags still attached. 

Heres photos of the ones I have already and how I'm framing them-

Are these not used as mobiles? If so I have the warlords one and I would part with it.

After I spent about 3 minutes looking for the seams between the two I finally realized they are shape cut and are place on a white background. That makes those even cooler. :thumbsup:

Yeah they're actually mobiles, are die-cut and double sided. I found the atari2600.com website, but I wasn't sure how trustworthy it was, does anyone have experience with the site?

I also found that ebay auction but they want a bit much for just warlords. There is also this auction-<a data-ipb="nomediaparse" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.ebay.com/itm/12-Vintage-1982-Atari-2600-Artfaire-Double-Sided-Hanging-Displays-Yars-Tempest-/331507181928?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4d2f5e2968%20for%2012%20posters%20but%20way%20out%20of%20my%20price%20range%20and%20I%20don" href="http://www.ebay.com/itm/12-Vintage-1982-Atari-2600-Artfaire-Double-Sided-Hanging-Displays-Yars-Tempest-/331507181928?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4d2f5e2968%20for%2012%20posters%20but%20way%20out%20of%20my%20price%20range%20and%20I%20don" t%20need%20all%20the%20duplicates.%c2%a0"="">http://www.ebay.com/itm/12-Vintage-1982-Atari-2600-Artfaire-Double-Sided-Hanging-Displays-Yars-Tempest-/331507181928?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4d2f5e2968 

for 12 posters but way out of my price range and I don't need all the duplicates.

You do? I'd be willing to buy it then. Could you send a picture?

I'm on the cheap to, I spent like $36 on those 6 without the frames.  :cool:

Plexiglas on both sides sounds pretty cool though actually. I just wouldn't have anywhere they could be displayed as such.

Please you can but those hooks that screw into the ceiling anywhere. Just drill a hole in the Plexiglas pieces and hang from the ceiling in your living room. It will make a nice discussion piece for MrsAtariGirl.

 

Now for a real idea simply cut out a spot in a dividing wall and place in center. In one room you will see side 1 and in other room you will see side 2.
