Comments from Paul Thacker about these pictures:

"I bought a collection of six NIB carts in the Astrovision-style packaging--AstroBASIC, Galactic Invasion, Star Battle, Grand Prix, Brickyard/Clowns, and The Incredible Wizard. I found it amusing all the small variations in the boxes, probably due to the limited time Astrovision had the rights to use the Bally name, and Astrovision's own name change to Astrocade. Only the BASIC cart says Astrocade on the back; the others say Astrovision. On the front and sides, some say Bally and some say Astrocade. Of the ones that say Astrocade, sometimes it's printed directly on the box, and other times it's on a sticker (presumably covering up Bally)."


Bally Box Packaging (Star Battle)(Front) Astrocade Box Example 1

This is the earliest version of Astrocade cartridge packaging. Astrovision, Inc. was able to use the name "Bally" on their products for one year.

After one year, using the name "Bally" packaging expired. Then Astrovision, Inc. used stickers that overlaid the old packaging so that they could use their remaining stock.

Once the old inventory of boxes ran out, then new boxes were printed which didn't have the name "Bally" on them.
