Greetings, 

 

For those of you who own Activision patches for the Atari 2600, could you measure a few of the patches for me?  I'm working with someone to have some patches made for an upcoming game, and we're curious what size we should use for them.  I don't personally have any Activision patches, so I can't measure them myself. 

 

The round patches in particular would be good to measure (Kaboom!, Decathlon, Dolphin, H.E.R.O., Laser Blast, Private Eye, Space Shuttle, Spider Fighter, Stampede). 

 

Thanks!

 

 ..Al

Spider Fighter is 3.5" across. And because it's early, I measured from both directions. Doh!

Was the measurement the same in both directions?  ;) 

 

Thanks!  That is larger than I was imagining (even though I have seen these in person).  Now I'm curious if all the round patches are the diameter.

The 3 Decathlon patches are more like 3.25"; Dolphin, Kaboom! (both Atari and Colecovision), Laser Blast, Oink, Spider Fighter, and Stampede are all 3.5"; H.E.R.O., Private Eye, and Space Shuttle (Pilot) are 3".  (Worm Whomper is an oval.)
