Atari posters from the Steve Morgenstern Estate

Recommended Posts

At long last, I was able to have professionally-done photos taken of the Atari posters from Atari Age Magazine's founding editor Steve Morgenstern's estate. Most of the pieces are now being auctioned on eBay, with the exception of the original George Perez painting. This piece will go on sale by next weekend. These pieces are going to be featured in Tim Lapetino's Art of Atari book. Here's some pics and links to eBay pages:

 

The original, untrimmed 38"x25" mock-up for Atari Age Vol. 1 #1. *

* My fiancee and I have three or four similar, but trimmed posters that will also be for sale. We'd most likely want to keep one as a memento of her father, but will put the others for sale after properly looking at the condition of the items.

 

The Centipede 36"x25" poster with scary/sexy nekkid insect woman, which as of this writing, already has a bid.

The Berzerk Italian 25"x17" poster

The Defender German 25"x17" poster

Yars' Revenge 25"x17" poster

Demons to Diamonds 25"x17 poster

Atari "In the Chips" 26"x20" poster

We also have the Atari Hall of Fame Scoreboard, sealed in its packaging. This was a mail-order item from Atari Age's Christmas catalog.

A quick note in case anyone's potentially interested. These auctions all end tonight, in the next two to four hours. The Atari Age cover, Centipede, Yars' Revenge, Demons to Diamonds, "In the Chips" and the scoreboard all have pending bids, so they will be going home with somebody.

I forgot to bid on Yars' Revenge.

 

I will be very interested to see what happens with the George Perez painting.

The person who won them all usually puts way over $10000 bids.

 

They never lose an auction unless they are not able to bid.
