Vidpro Toys R Us Display Cards


Recommended Posts

As a kid, one of my favorite memories was going to Toys R Us, and flipping a bunch of display cards in the video game aisle. This were often made by a company called Vidpro and used in other stores as well. In this thread I will be sharing scans of some of my collection of Vidpro Cards.

You can also see a large chunk of my collection in this video:

I used to have a stack of these three feet tall from the PS1-N64-GBC era. I don't know where they are. I wasn't that interested in them because they seemed modern to me and what I really wish I had were NES, MasterSystem, TG16 and Atari vidpro cards.

My cards ranger from the NES era to the PS1, Saturn, N64 era. My favorites are Atari and Genesis style, but sadly I have no Atari or TG-16 cards. Many years ago I was watching an auction for 4 Atari cards, but forget to bid before it ended. I was bummed I forget.

One reason I'm posting these is I'm trying to go through my collection to thin it out.

If anyone is interested, keep tabs on my ebay page. I already listed over ten for sale with more to come (as well as more scans for the thread)

At least you were able to confirm that Atari cards actually exist! I remember the cards for Atari Lynx, I don't think I ever saw the cards for 2600, 5200 or 7800.

This card makes me want to try this game, which I didn't realize existed before.

I wish I still had a ticket for a game!

I might still have some ticket sheets somewhere. I used to print off tickets for Atari games just for fun (circa 2000). I've moved so many times since then and lost so much stuff It's hard to think about. I'll try to find one for you!
