Your Favorite Atari Merchandise

Recommended Posts

So what is your favorite Atari merchandise?   Favorite hat, shirt, wallet, keychain, plush, toy, etc.   if it's Atari related we want to see it!

 

Starting this off, was always a big fan of the Atari jackets.  I saw then when I was in grade school and was happy to get two of them in a box of things that were passed along by another Atari hobbyist.

(If you have two of them, don't store them together). ;)

 

So what about the rest of you?

I love the look of these jaguar water bottles, it’s a shame they’re so hard to come by.

When I got back into Atari in 1999 GoAtari.com was still around and they said "Business was steady" which gave me some relief.   I hadn't completely missed the party. ;)

 

I bought a Atari Jaguar hat which I still have, I think I got some badges, and I believe they sent me a catalog.

 

Looks like even they didn't have the water bottles, though I thought they did.

I have the top jacket and a really nice blue one that I'd actually love to wear - it's a blue windbreaker with white sleeves and logo, sort of the opposite of the top, but even with weight loss it's just too small for me. My wife wears it occasionally though. I like it!

Can you take some pictures of the jackets?

I bought an Asteroids hoodie for £4 about 10 years back.  I'm wearing it in almost every photograph of me for the last decade!  I guess I wear it a lot.

I like the VCS, it’s a cool atari console-shaped PC.

Burn!  LOL!!

Well post up a picture.  Reminds me of a Asteriods shirt I had in grade school that said "#1 Ace of Space".   I'm sure it's around somewhere.

i have an Atari tshirt with the multi-colored Fuji I got from Wallyworld ages ago- it's one of my fave gamer shirts.  :)  

 

I have worn out several of those shirts.   I see people wearing these all the time, but gave up asking people about Atari as it seems like it, with so many, "Just something retro and a cool shirt". :P

I am a nut for Atari merchandise. If I can not find stuff, I just make it for myself. I have made a ton of Tshirts, sweatshirts, hats and even a jacket.

Here are three of my favorites:

My embroidered Lynx/Jaguar Jacket:

My embroidered Jaguar Tshirt:

and to top it off(pun intended)....my Jaguar Hat:

I like the Atari baseball bats. I only have the Joe Morgan bat.

Nah...it's a 28" bat. I'm assuming it was a giveaway item during their 25th year anniversary, sponsored by Atari. There are several of these bats. Here’s a thread (originally from ‘05) that discussed the bats.

It's this one. 

 

Really miss big retro gaming events like this one, we got to play an early Oculus prototype, had a 64 player Warlords tournament, drink beer together, played on rare cabs & consoles, saw previews of new homebrew & bang on about old videogames.  

 

Come on boffins let's get this thing cured so we can get back out there!

 

Sorry, a bit off topic there, looking at these photos has made me a bit nostalgic.

Atari bragged more about their pens then about their computers.

So, is this thread about merchandise, or just Atari branded stuff?  If so, is there any proof, that the baseball bats could be purchased?  I have 4 different players bats, all different length.  Posted a pic, in that thread that was linked earlier.

 

My jewel, but I doubt it could be purchased, since it is an employee award of some sort...

Good point...looks like the bats were just giveaways. Sorry gents, pay no attention to my entry.

My favorite Atari merchandise is actually a digital collectable outfit and 2600 in the game "Evergleam Hill" from the Apple AppStore.

Oh, I googled it -- I haven't had a chance to actually see the new VCS yet -- and you're totally right! I thought it was the game that simplified the 2600, but instead it seems Atari designed the VCS after the 2600.
