For today’s museum post I have a collection of five Sega Master System (SMS) catalogs from the 1980s. The first two came as folded inserts inside the boxes of certain games. The third and fourth were catalogs localized for the Hong Kong market (in both Chinese and English), apparently printed in Japan by Sega. Lastly, we have another catalog from Hong Kong, this time printed by the SMS’s local distributor, Wong’s Kong King Limited.
I’m especially proud of the Hong Kong catalogs because I brought them over to the U.S. with me when we moved over here, and kept them for all these decades (it’s been nearly three). I used to look at the catalogs before bed and dream about which games I would buy next. You can even see on one of the catalogs how I marked off the games I had already acquired.
I hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane.
