Atari 2600 VCS Activision Patches
"Activision, the first 3rd party videogame publisher, operated a fantstic marketing program in the 80's to promote the sale of their software for the Atari 2600, Atari 5200, Colecovision and the Mattel Intellivision. To obtain any of the coveted Activision patches, a player would need to play a particular game, reach a pre-determined score, and mail a photograph prooving the accomplishment to Activision. Weeks later the Activision patch would arrive in your mailbox compliments of Activision, accompanied by a nice letter from the company congratulating you on your game-playing skills and welcoming you to the club."
