From the 1981 Atari catalog. Clearly, this is David Letterman and Lwaxana Troi.

This image is from the Blackjack page in the 1981 Atari catalog (Rev. C). Clearly, this is David Letterman and Lwaxana Troi :lol: The resemblance is uncanny!

And for comparison, here's an image of Dave Letterman and Lwaxana Troi circa-1993 when I first noticed the resemblance:

Cool, I recall being freaked-out by their bizarre artwork when I was younger...now I LOVE it!  That's one main reason I try to collect "CIB" (or even better, "NIB") whenever possible.  The catalogs & awesome box/manual artwork are so fun to look at & reminisce!

Sadly, my collection is almost entirely loose carts. I cannot wait for "The Art of Atari" to finally be published.
