Here’s the first non-magazine scan in a while, a Sega Genesis catalog and poster circa 1990. This was probably one of my favorites from the period early on in the Genesis’ life when it still maintained the “Sega grid” that had been part of the Master System’s packaging as well. Black was definitely cooler than the candy-stripe colors from later years.
I don’t remember how I came across this poster. I want to say it came with a game, but unlike the Master System catalog, I have zero recollection of seeing these in the game boxes. Then again, I sold most of my Genesis games long ago so it wouldn’t be surprising that I’ve forgotten. For sure I had some of these Genesis posters (there were multiple variations) on my old room’s wall, but this particular one is pretty clean and lacks pinholes and tape. Maybe I’ll hold onto it for a while.
As always, I hope you’ve enjoyed this museum post.
