I have one of the boards as well. Not the entire display, just the board and a few cables. I am ready to let it go if anyone is interested.

I also own the PCB out of one of the atari POP displays. It was sold off in late 80s from local hardware store. This unit does allow you to plug in standard cartridges in addition to your favorite roms in the blank spaces. I have standard controller plugs installed on the harness and the two selection switches for game number. It is a full size arcade form factor PCB and came in the standard shielding box used in arcade games from the era.

These Video Gaming Centers were made by Frank Mayer & Assoc in 1982 for Sears. Some overages were given to employees and Sears also got rid of the publicly played units. Few of these were ever made as I worked there during that era. I have one for sale as of 2-8-17! The computer can be set internally for "full length play" by the way. Retro city!

I remember seeing these in places like K-Mart back in the day to showcase and promote the Atari 2600. It was part of a fancier display that had the 2600 connected to a color TV as well. It was not unlike, say the "PlayChoice-10" Nintendo games in the arcade. But in any event, you got to test drive most of the Atari-made games that was available up until that point, by playing like 20-30 seconds worth (or something along those lines) before it reverted back to the title screen. Done, I guess, to prevent good players from monopolizing its use.

My dad just picked one of these up at a garage sale today. Never seen one before. Very interested if anyone else has anymore info on it.

I own one of these as well. Am I correct that Goodwill Hunter and I are the only collectors that have these?

Hey, that's my display from one of the early Midwest Gaming Classics...and the VGSC is still one of the centerpieces of my collection.

Additional Comments - Video Game Selection Center

The Video Game Selection Center was designed by Atari's arcade division and was to be displayed on the counters of Sears' electronics departments. For this kiosk neither an Atari 2600 console nor its actual controllers were used to demo the games and it has no visible Atari branding on it.
