This ad was uploaded to Flickr from its original microfilm by Benjamin Edge. The ad itself being from microfilm has that Xerox-y quality, but what it lacks in print quality it more than makes up for in content. $99.84 for a Colecovision AND you get a free Cabbage Patch Kid? Sign me up!
You can tell it is 84, because look at those plunging game prices. Each one of them a deal. While a Colecovision would have still been high on my “want” list in 1984 if you look down at the Commodore Vic 20 section you will notice the Commodore Telephone Modem, which I desperately wanted at the time.
