I found a few 1st article samples kn Ebay I added to my collection. Was wondering who else has a few of these.

I heard they went to quality assurance department to check for errors in a test run before mass production took place . The 3 I have are paint dig dug and qix. I posted photos in the what did you buy lately section but would love to hear and see what others might be floating around in other collections

Cool.

 

Was there any info in the auction listing? Something like "I worked for Atari back in the day"?

Not in the listing. I was given a name that I need to research but its unclear if they were tied to atari in house or an outside person maybe who reviewed for a magazine. Or just a guy who collected or randomly ended up with this stuff before he passed away.

The qix has a location name that goes back possibly to an atari caribe inc out of Puerto Rico. Which was established from 1981 to around 1985. At least that show holdings and such. Found that interesting besides the boring san jose location in cali.
