Just as collectible now as they were then! It was customary for Activision to offer special sew-on patches for players who achieved a specific score threshold or rank. All you had to do to claim it was take a photo of the screen and mail it to them; in return, they'd send you a cool patch and a letter - often from their Customer Relations rep Jan Marsella. She also went by other titles, such as "Game Chairman", "Membership Chairman", "Activision Olympic Committee Chairman", "Commander-in-Chief and our favorite, "Keeper of the Light". In fact, there were only 2 that weren't signed by her, but by Pitfall Harry.
