Hi everyone,
Maybe you know my trading card sets I have done for the Atari 7800 and Intellivision (see links down below). Currently I am working on a series of trading/collector cards for the for the 5200 (and the Lynx, for this please check the thread in the Lynx forum) with the support of AtariAge for quite some time now after finishing Series 5 for the Intellivision. Today I’ve received the test prints and all in all the cards are looking fine. I must do a few small changes but then they are ready to go. The first series with 50 cards features the original Atari, Activision and CBS releases.
A set costs EURO 37.50 including shipping airmail letter (to North America and Europe in a robust box/uninsured/no tracking/shipping time 5 to 10 days). Since I have to pay the printer in advance I have to charge the amount up-front, so if you are interested in a set just drop me a PM with your Paypal address, I’ll send you an Paypal invoice in the next few days.
Some additional info:
  • The second series of 50 cards will include the rest of the regular released games as well as aftermarket games, homebrews and hardware. It’s planned for a February release.
  • A series contains 50/55 cards since my printer offers a maximum of 55 cards (based on poker decks) for small runs. Therefor the splits into sets of 50 cards.
  • Quality: The cards are printed and cut professionally, the material is poker cards quality paper and very durable.
  • Limitations: It's not a limited run, but after the first production run the price will raise quite a bit due to the lower production numbers for re-orders.
  • Combined shipping letter airmail: It's possible for up to 3 sets, the first set costs EURO 37.50, the other two costs EURO 35 each.
  • Combined shipping airmail parcel: It's possible for up to 15 sets, the first set costs EURO 37.50, the additional copies cost EURO 35 each. Please note that shipping as regular airmail parcel with tracking and insurance costs EURO 37.00 to North America, EURO 17.00 to Europe and EURO 7.00 within Germany.
  • Order and shipping dates: Pre-Orders can be placed until December 30th. Production takes usually about a week, but due to the holiday season this might slip a bit, so the shipping will be in the second week of January.
  • Errors: The pictures are showing the test print. There are some errors and they will be corrected in the regular print run. If I miss something a replacement card will come with series 2.
  • Combined 5200 and Lynx orders: If you are interested in ordering a set of both 5200 and Lynx cards, the total is EURO 72.50.
If you have any questions just drop me a line.
PS: If you are interested in the Atari 7800 and Intellivision cards as well, just check back here:

A short update: I need at least 25 sets to do a run. Right now I have 3 preorders so the project is dead. :/

So much of my childhood right here in the 5200. It was my first console! :)

Marc, will you re-start this project? I see it was cancelled prior. I'm interested.

Marc does a great job.  I ordered the lynx cards.  You can add me to the order if available.  THanks!
