Rarest 2600 catalog?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what the rarest 2600 catalog was? Would it be the early 1977/8 ones, or the later 1988/9 ones? I think one of the most common is the red 1982 catalog, since I see that one on ebay fairly often (and that's when the 2600 was most poular, 1982, wasn't it?).

The 1982 calendar with 48 titles & the 1989 Atari Atvantage red poster seem rare to me,but I could be way off....anyone else know?

I have a ©1981 Atari Catalog from France. It has a yellow cover, and features 45 games.

 

I've never seen it anywhere outside of my collection..

No, they're all earlier releases that also were available in the USA. Cool catalog nonetheless.

There was a catalog that was only given out at Atari Kiosks. I forget which one, but it's in the 83-84 range. I have four different foriegn 2600 catalogs that were pretty difficult to find. They have some interesting stuff in them too.

I assume that the "Kiosk Katalog" is one that we don't have a scan of on AtariAge? You should have sent me those catalogs when you sent me all that 5200 stuff (the stuff I still haven't scanned in!) Maybe I can bring a scanner with me to PhillyClassic. I'd like to get as many foreign catalogs online as we can at some point..

Would it be possible for you to scan that 1982 calendar poster? It would be great to add it to the rest of the Atari catalogs we have online. If you don't have a scanner, I'd be happy to scan it myself if you'd entrust it ot the US Mail..

You're right, that is a very nice site. While we don't have any foreign catalog scans yet here, we do have a considerable number of catalogs from US companies, presented in a similar format. I'm guessing you haven't seen them yet.

 

Atari 2600 Catalogs

 

Enjoy!

I put on my website scans of some of my catalogs (Polyvox, french catalogs...) you can see it at
www.atarimania.fr.st
in the 'Divers' section.


 

Hi Atarimania--I see you have some catalogs we don't and vice versa. Would you be interested in trading some catalog scans?

I see a few catalogs there that we're missing. Did you know there are a few broken images on that page (specifically, 1982 Green Poster catalog, 1982 Calendar, and the 1983 Silver 2600/5200 coupon calendar)? I need to get my hands on some of these catalogs so I can scan them.
