I am looking for the Miner 2049er map/poster that came with the Atari 800 game.  It may also have come with the Atari 5200 and Commodore 64 versions of the game, but I'm not sure.  I used to have this poster, which came with my personal copy of Miner 2049er, but I guess its considered pretty rare now.  I sold my game with its poster in the early-to-mid 2000s.

 

I found some pictures (not scans) of the Miner 2049er poster that I'm talking about on the miner2049er.net website.  Here is a thumbnail and link to the full, but low-res, poster:

The artwork for the Miner 2049er poster is fantastic.  I have looked for a hi-res scan of it that I could get printed as a poster for my office wall.  Does anyone know if there is a high-res scan (300dpi or better) scan that I could print at about 20 inches tall?

Did you get that idea because you saw it written so clearly at the top of the poster?  Duh.  I'm an idiot!

 

Thanks for pointing that out to me.  From that "clue," I see that AtariAge has a fairly okay scan of the manual/poster here:

I wonder if anyone has cleaned that one up a bit?

I do have an extra poster in great condition, but as was stated before that typically goes with the Bounty Bob Strikes back game. And yes Big Five Software rocks!!!

 

What are you willing to pay for a loose cart and poster?

You should make a good scan of that sucker before you sell it

It has always bothered me that the artwork shows Bob with a glorious beard, but in-game Bob is clearly clean shaven.
