Original Key Art - Atari Lynx - Paperboy

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

Recently came into possession of the a one of a kind item, the original art for Paperboy on the Atari Lynx that used to hang in the old Atari office.

 

Just got it re-framed with new acid free matting and UV glass.

 

I've already had a couple of offers on this, and wanted to sanity check pricing on such a piece.

Nice you got it refamed for preservation but if this hung in the atari offices it might be cool to keep its original display framing as well that hung at atari.

The original was...incredibly grungy, and the matting quite faded, being 30 years old and all.

 

Everything has been made to match the original though.

That's awesome. I love how they always have part of the picture extend beyond the frame. I have the Space Invaders and Asteroids that were at Atari. Here's Space Invaders.P1010206.thumb.JPG.1299efae140757863d236a0f2795bbd3.JPG

That’s a great looking piece!

 

Did it not have a plaque on that one?

The person I bought them from removed the glass to reduce the weight and make them safer to ship. There were no plaques when I received them. I didn't even know that it should have had one until I saw your picture.
