Sega Embossed Envelope, 1988

In this previous post about a game list that Sega sent to me in Hong Kong, I mentioned an envelope with a blue Sega logo that I thought I had misplaced. Well, it turns out that I kept all my Sega envelopes in the blue shoulder bag. So now, here it is, the first ever piece of correspondence I received from Sega, postmarked September 1, 1988.

What’s really special about this envelope is that the Sega logo on the upper left is embossed. Later envelopes, even as early as November 29, 1988 (postmark of the second envelope I received), had a flat logo. After a while, even the flat logo was replaced with an ink stamp. In total, there were 21 Sega envelopes in the blue bag (and not including Sega Visions envelopes), which gives you an idea of how much I used to bug Sega with my requests!

The embossing is visible in the full-envelope scan, but I’ve included a 600 DPI scan of just the logo as well. Enjoy!

Electronic Arts “Get Real!” Sega Genesis Mailer (1991)

Here’s an earlier Sega Genesis from Electronic Arts, circa 1991, with their “Get Real!” slogan from that period. Unlike some of the later mailers, this mailer lacks full color, containing only orange, black, and white.

That’s all for today. See you tomorrow.
