Hey guys, I just bought this from a thrift store a few days ago for 2$ and thought you might find it interesting. I've certainly never heard of a computer company selling or giving away promo jigsaw puzzles so this seems really strange. Anyhow here it is, it's a PCjr jigsaw puzzle that was obviously some sort of promotional item.

It's still sealed as you will note and I don't intend on opening it. Also is it just me or does that guy look an awful lot like mitt romney? lol

I've had a completed copy of the puzzle, as well some other goodies on the web page for probably a decade now:

And yes, nobody does things like that anymore ...

Very nice find. I have a PCjr coaster set (tiny PCjrs!) that I think is pretty swell.

I kept trying to get the PCjr desk clock but anyone who has it on ebay has it for triple-digits, so no dice so far.
