As you may or may not already know, some Atari 7800 versions of Tomcat: The F-14 Fighter Simulator were sold with 2600 labels on the put on the cartridges by mistake. I made a video showing this, but you can tell what system a 2600 labeled cart is for simply by looking at the exposed circuit board (The 7800 version is wider and includes groves on each side. It also won't fit in a 2600 system).

 

And now you know, and knowing is half the battle.

Actually, I'm doing back-to-back reviews of both versions.
