Flag Capture (c) 1978 picture label GREEN text FOUND 4/29

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I'm a new member here but I've been collecting games a long time. My main interests are Neo Geo and 16 bit stuff but I have always collected a little Atari on the side.

 

Just wanted to join and share with you guys what I think may be a somewhat significant find I made today. While purusing a local game store in my area (Tampa Bay, FL) I happened upon a very clean copy of Flag Capture - picture label with GREEN text, copyright 1978. My good friend Supergun advises me that there are only 1 to 2 other confirmed copies of this one out there to date. That is pretty amazing! This copy is quite clean. I collect Sears variants and all Atari picture labels and just happened to pick this one up because I didn't recognize seeing it before.

 

Price was $3.99. The date on the sticker said 4/28 which means the shop just got it in yesterday :) Had no idea what it was when I bought it, just knew that it was a cool picture label I didn't have.

 

Not selling right now, but any questions feel free to ask :)

Ah, yes, they are my fingers lol. Sorry if I was out of line making a separate thread about it :) SuperGun got excited about it before the admins approved my posting privileges :)

No worries, just joking around. :)

Welcome!

I saw about this in one of the other threads Supergun posted in. I've been collecting for almost 20 years and I never even heard of this label variation until I read that thread. This has to be up there with the Atari text label "Space Combat" and "Baseball" variants. :) (I think those were prototypes, but still!)

Very cool, brother. :thumbsup: Enjoy it!

As I said in my reply to Supergun's post, awesome! I've been waiting a long time for another one of these to turn up. Congratulations.

 

Is there a date code stamped into the end label? The only other copy of this variant has one, which looks to be "21 2 R".

 

Actually, would you mind posting a photo of the end label?

Thanks guys. Here's a few more pics, the second one is the best pic I can give of the date stamp area. It very well could be 21 2 R but it is very tough to discern. The first number/character is about unreadable, followed by either a 1 or 7 (probably 1), definitely a 2, and then what I thought was a 3 or 8 (but could very well be R).

EDIT - trying to figure out how to attach images. It was so easy for my first post. LOL

It would be very cool if the white-background instruction manual that should have accompanied this cartridge would also turn up someday.

Christophero, are you the owner of the other confirmed cartridge of this? If so how long have you had it and where did you find it?
