Atari 825 Dot Matrix 80 Column Printer

We recently Sold Out of the New in the box Atari 825 Printers we got out of the local Sunnyvale Atari Warehouses when we cleared them out about 15+ years ago.  We thought for sure they had passed into Atari History and we would never see any more!  Out of the blue one day recently, we got a call from a company saying they found a small lot of New in the box Atari 825 printers in storage locker.  We bought the whole lot of new Atari 825 printers and had them shipped in. 

The Atari 825 printer was one of the very first 80 Column free standing printers sold for the Atari 8 bit (400 / 800 / 1200XL / 65XE / 130XE) Computers 31+ years ago.  It was made for Atari by the Centronics printer company.  It was close to the Centronics 837 / 839 printers but had an Atari Custom ROM OS chip and Custom Atari top cover.  A bit of Centronics trivia:  at one time the California Department of Motor Vehicles used Centronics printers to print out all of the driver documents and vehicles forms for years (30 years ago).

The exact condition of the outside New 825 boxes might slightly vary from the above pictured one.  These 31+ year old New boxes of 825 printers might have slight tares (on the end edge corners of the boxes) on the top box brown paper tape used to seal the tops of the boxes, slight dented sides or corners, slight creases in the box sides or might have minor slight / light box stains over the outside surfaces of the 31 year old New brown Atari 825 boxes.  All Atari 825 printers are New in the original Atari OEM 825 box with original serial number labels attached, have a new fresh 825 Zip Pack black Ribbon installed and are tested before they are shipped.  All 825 new boxed 825 printers will be put into a second larger shipping box to be shipped.
