I'm proud to share my modest little collection with you all. Starting with the Fairchild VES and games I recently acquired. (Yes I am aware the dust cover is on upside down in the 1st photo)

More Atari (and related) stuff from my collection:

 

2600 Defender & Swordquest: Earthworld with the manuals and comics. Swordquest is in an EA SNES clamshell (?). I always wonder how these things happen.

This one takes some explaining (shameless plug alert)...on the left is a 4" lathecut record that my band (Deschtuco) released a few years ago. The song is a short tune called Phoenix, next to the 2600 cart of Phoenix and some Atari stickers for scale.

And an original 1981 Aladdin brand Pac-Man lunchbox with thermos bottle.
