Montogomery Ward’s Video Game Selection was Scant in 1981

This is it from 1981 –Just 2 pages. The Bally System’s controllers look impossible to use, but the Coleco Telstar Marksman looks amazing. Oh Coleco, we hardly knew ye. I had no memory of the APF system. Now I want one.

    Was this Bally system produced by the health club company? It looks like the same logo as that gym at my local mall (in the ’80s).
