Sears game catalog? Sears cart Art?

Recommended Posts

We all have seen the Atari catalogs for 2600 games .. some were cartoon style and some were the actual Atari art.

 

Did Sears ever put out a dedicated Video Arcade booklet of 2600 games??  Or just what they listed in the big seasonal catalogs??
 

Also who did the Sears box art?   I have the coffee table book of Atari art .. but I don’t think it has the Sears box art in it.

As far as I know, Sears issued 3 brochure catalogs for the 2600 games. I really love the art in each.  Here’s a pic of all 3. 

 

I couldn’t tell you who did the box art, but I’d love to know who myself.

Nice .. what year is each of these?  Sears was the only place to buy carts in my city and I have never seen these.  Do scans of these exist?

Rob, the first one on the left is from 1978; the other two are from 1981.  Here's a link where you can see the scans for all three:
