Wow, those are some pretty cool pics there. Any chance we could get scans of the pages (or the whole mag?) so that the articles are more readable? Thank you for posting what you posted either way.

That would be up to Mr Citelli if he wanted them taken apart for scanning. Then of course there's the expense. As it is, at least I have the information available, which is key, since it's all first hand stuff. Even if it's not perfectly imaged (and far from it), we have the information. I'll be mailing these back on Friday.

Photos at that high of a resolution are good enough just so we can have the info (as long as the photos are in focus). Any chance someone could take photos of at least the Atari 2600 related info from as many years as possible? If the magazines existed from the late 1970s and continued into the 1980s, I'm mostly interested in 1979 through 1984. I especially love when they mention the month a game is supposed to be released.

 

This is from January/February 1983:

It would be nice if more was available.

I'm not sure who has any of those available. I only had them on loan for a short time when filming for the documentary, and only for 1980 - 1981.
