CBS Wings plus two other mystery mag ads.

Found a small collection of Atari related original artwork for magazine or comic ads.

Anyone recognize any of these and know if they were published anywhere.

I'll have better pics when I get them in hand.

Got a few more that I need help with.

This one looks like it could be Congo Bongo?

 

 

Yep, that explorer dude is totally from the Congo Bongo ads (and you give him a hot foot at the end of each round of levels). I'm kind of curious about the context surrounding the monkey throwing money around though.

My guess was some type of rebate offer from Sega. With both $5 and $10 bills shown it could have been a multi-tiered rebate. Buy this and get back $5 buy this and this and get $10 back etc or $5 back for every Sega game you buy etc.

Adam, I have pretty much every Sega ad they ran during that period and I've never seen either of those used anywhere. They must have been intended to advertise the "Double Bucks Back" rebate offered by Sega and Wico in late 1984 (as seen here and here). If you're ever willing to part with any of those, let me know.

There were images that I did not post because I found the published versions including one that was published in a comic book.

So that might also be a possibility for those not yet found.
