Does anyone have a copy of a 1983 or 1982 or 1981 issue of Computer Shopper with anything at all on the TI-99/4A?  I mean anything, an article or even a single advertisement.

I'll have to look at mine, but there were some during that time period with TI content. . .although I think my collection starts in late 1982 or early 1983.

Looking forward to it.

The oldest surviving issue I have was from March, 1984. I used to have more of the older issues, but a number of them were destroyed when my apartment in Turkey got flooded when I was living there. The March 1984 issue has Part III of the Innermost Secrets of the 99/4A in it though--and those were generally on a one article every two months cadence, so that would put the first one in November of 1983. The March 1984 issue has about half a dozen TI related articles in total, so I suspect they covered it well before Black Friday. . .as all of the computer magazines I did buy back then were bought for their TI content.
