This gallery highlights the fabric patches that Activision offered for achieving high scores on their games.  Contestants were instructed to photograph their TV with the high score showing and mail it in, and Activision would send back a patch.  Today, these are highly collectible items.  In case you were wondering, Activision does not have any of these patches left today, so don't send them your high scores.  Really.

All patches have the name Activision atop (or otherwise set off) on the patch save for those where the name is listed and the higher level patches for Laser Blast and Starmaster.  This table only includes the 2600 Activision patches - patches were also made for the 5200, Intellivision, and Colecovision.  Some of those patches are identical, some are different.  Not all Activision games offered patches, only those listed here.
