I know you don't like me, but I think the poster is not genuine..... The artwork and layout of Atari posters in the early eighties was very different and much more colorful. This poster looks like a homemade project. Even the pictureframe is too small for the poster.

 

On the internet there is absolutely no reference to a Missile Command contest in the early eighties. In the right bottom of your picture I can see ©Atari Inc., but the date is unreadable.

 

I think your contact scanned this beautifull page of "The art of Atari":

And then he made a nice layout on his computer, but..... he used the font "Blitzwing" and that font was first published in 2013....

The stickers in the first picture are real though, but they are quite common.

Lenticular is the word you might be looking for. :)

Wouldn't mind adding a Defender lenticular sticker to the collection... how much? Or would trade a VCS Pac-Man lenticular for it if you don't already have one.
