I was just tooling around the internet this evening when I stumbled upon some images for vintage Atari game pencils. Todd Franklin was kind enough to share some photos of his collection on his personal blog. I can assure you that I’ve never seen these pencils in the wild myself…but I would lay down some serious money now if I could get my hands on them.
Dig-Dug, Jungle Hunt, Pengo, Kangaroo, Moon Patrol, Haunted House, Missile Command, Asteroids, Warlords, and…wait for it…SwordQuest! So many pencils, who knew these little pieces of painted wood could bring such a large smile to my face? Make sure to check out Todd’s wonderful story on his quest to obtain all of the Atari pencils!
