Atari 7800 Trading Cards Series 1

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

Quite some time ago I saw some nice trading cards for the Coleco over there in the Colecovision/Adam sub forum and thought that it would be nice to have something like this for the Atari and started doing some samples. It turned out to look nice so I made a set of 50 cards for a complete series that includes all original Atari releases. If I can raise enough interest I will do a second series with non-Atari releases, prototypes and new releases as well as a hardware and advertisement series (number of cards vary of course:).

 

First I thought it would be a good idea to do those cards by hand (Inkjet printing on photo paper, cutting by hand and so on), just like I do the boxes but it turned out to be to complicated with lots of chances to ruin a card during the process and to end up with a result that doesn't match my standards. So I went to my printer to do a test run for me. Today I've got my samples and I am very happy with the quality. Happy enough to show them here and ask if anyody else might be interested in a first set.

 

Enclosed you will find a lowres picture of a sample artwork (Ikari Warriors) and the index card as well as a preview of the complete test run. To do a production run I need a total of 25 sets. A set costs EURO 50 (includes shipping to EU and NA) and comes in a plastic tray. So if you are interested in a set just drop me a PM and I will inform you how to proceed when I've reached a total number of orders for 25 sets.

 

Best,

Marc.

 

Edit: Index card artwork replaced.

Nice looking set. You have a typo however. On check list #2. (4th image from left to right) The card says cards 01 to 25 and it should say 26 to 50.

Ah, don't worry, it's just on the sample artwork I've uploaded, on the printed cards it's correct:)

I thought that might be the case but just wanted to mention it in case you had some sets made and didn't notice :-)

With the help of Tim Duarte I am able to lower the price for a set to US$ 45 for North America and EUR 35 in Europe. That includes shipping. So if you are interested in a set please visit the thread in the marketplace.

Those look really good. Unfortunately here in the states you can't get things like this printed by a print shop because of copyright law. I've tried.

Got mine a few days ago and looked threw them. "Wow" is one of the best three-letter words to descibe them. Great work as always. I think it is awesome with such talent doing so much for the retro Atari scene. :thumbsup:

Got mine today and they look great! (Also got four boxes from Marc for Bob's recent games and they all look great too!)

Very nice work! I'm really impressed with the quality of these. I think I received the 'special' pack: mine had two copies of Pole Position II! :)

 

There are two PP cards because of the label variation.
