Your Favorite Atari Merchandise

Recommended Posts

I freaking love this messenger bag. My fiancee has one since the day we known each other, and I always wanted one too.

 

Just bought it recently for carrying stuff and computers.

 

Also, I like memorabilia like keychains and so :)

Nothing cooler than Atari in Japanese script.

 

Got this keychain from a local GameStop.

No idea. It is from the 80s and it is in the Netherlands. Don't know how it got there or if it is official. I have a hard time thinking someone made this in the 80s as an unauthorized atari item.

I was hoping someone around here has any ideas???

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

The term "digital collectable" is an oxymoron.

I remember the Ms. Pac-Man display!  That is awesome.  But what I want to see a better picture of the Stargate display.

 

So some merch I found today, the Atari Computer Camp in a Facebook auction..

I want to say I've seen this before, but dunno, after all those times of wearing gym uniforms this would have made it a bit more bearable... till I was clobbered for being a dork.  :P

That is way better than my homemade Atari wife-beater shirt! I would love to own one of those. This and theAtari Racquetball shirt are badass!

That looks like a classic European 80's ripoff of a Dupont, I had one just like that (not ATARI branded).  Looks like an authentic promo item, although the logo is a bit odd, but anything is possible (it was the eighties, afterall).

Hello,

 

I have been a long time Lucasfilm/ILM cast and crew t-shirt collector and recently ventured into collecting the Atari crew shirts/clothing.

 

This shirt is my current favorite Atari item.  I bought this from a local estate sale (of an ex-Atari employee) here in the San Francisco Bay Area. Does anyone know when this Atari/Alfred E. Neuman design was first used?

 

Thanks in advance for any information.

Best

Steve

Oh I want that shirt!!   Love Mad Magazine and Atari.

 

Ok, another thing I like is Moon Patrol.   Wouldn't say I am the biggest fan, but it did have an impact on my childhood.

 

So imagine how happy I was when I ran across a hotwheel moon buggy looks amazingly like the one in Moon Patrol.   Thought I would share that today...

This apparently was the Radar Ranger in 1988, which is seven years after Moon Patrol.   I guess they were a fan too.  :P

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

Same here.   I find a lot of people wearing them have never touched an Atari in their life.  I had a guy ask me about my Atari shirt when I was at the mechanic a few months ago.  Showed him a picture of my collection and he told me about having a 2600 when he was a kid.  Turns out he lives right down the road and has come over a few times (before the pandemic) and we had a few Atari, pizza, and beer evenings.

Just so that people know, this shirt is a recently produced shirt. Not something from back-in-the-day.

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

I used to have one of those keychains. From GO ATARI.

Straight up Unofficial.  I bought an "Atari" clock off eBay many years ago.  And I remember clearly the auction said,   "This is not some junk,  This is a high quality Promo Item!",   so I knew it was gonna be junk.  Remember when some eBay auctions would outright lie like that?  I think the guy just bought the cheapest POS clock possible,  probably from Wal Mart or something and made a laminated sticker with an Atari logo on it.  But it was cheap.

 

It served its purpose as a clock in my Atari room for many years and quit working when it became impossible to change the batteries without the sticker needing repositioned and the hands getting bent and tangled up in one another...Every once in a while I waste a bunch of time and get it working again, but I'm not sure if that's still possible now...

Here it is looking more sinister with lighting underneath...

Just buy a new movement and replace it. Brand new mechanism. I did this once already with my Starcraft II clock. :)

I don't have anything super cool from the original era, but I'd say my personal favorite Atari merch is actually that Atari Hot Wheels Collector's Edition set that came out a decade or so ago. I have two complete sets, one opened and one sealed, and I have really had a lot of fun with it, including just letting my kid play with the cars he loves. The attention to detail and quality of build is particularly nice for a Hot Wheels.

Atari also made a bookcase cart holder I picked up from a thrift store once.  It was very handy for taking 2600 carts to classic gaming conventions for trades...

I have two of those cases, and agree that they are great. Personal favorite of the OG holders.

Could you make a sharper picture of this one?

Would like to add it to the database.
