Here are some newly scanned photos of what it looked like to get an Atari 800 computer for Christmas in 1983.


  1. Look at Mr. Fancy Pants with a Vetrex propped up beside the Atari monitor. 🙂

    Snarkiness aside, these pictures are great! I’m assuming you grew up in a warm climate because in Ohio no one wears shorts and short sleeves in December.

    • Ha! Yes, 1. We sold a bunch of Atari 2600 carts in early 1983 and got a Vectrex, it was awesome! …and yes, Southern California is always a pretty mild winder. Although, it used to rain much more and even frost more than it does now.
