Pinball Aficionado T-Shirt!!!

She's an Aficionado, are YOU???

Hey everyone! I've been getting a lot of feedback and questions from watchers and aficionados about my STERN factory tour from last week. Along with the big obvious questions like "When is the Star Trek code update coming out?" (not sure, can't say), and "Did you see Medieval Madness anywhere in the building?" (no I did not) and "Is Jack Benson really that tall" (sort of), I got one other question from many people: "Where did you get that cool T-Shirt and can I get one!" I can now answer that question! I officially present the extremely rare, super awesome, highly collectible, Pinball Aficionado Version 1 Limited Edition Fan T-Shirt!!!!!

Back of the Shirt

It's a thing of beauty! This shirt is black with gold lettering (like the blog) and sports the site's name on the front and a neat, slick pinball design on the back. The design was made custom for me by the in-house art staff at Arcade Odyssey. Like I said before, this shirt is a first edition and will be limited (will not make them for long), and once they're gone, THEY'RE GONE, and subsequent runs will be different, so this is the only chance to get this shirt.

For every shirt sale, $5 dollars of the purchase price goes toward Project Pinball. The amazingly great charity organization by Dan Spolar and the Pinball Asylum that uses donations to purchase pinball machines and deploys them for free in children's hospitals across the nation (WOW!). 

Their Facebok Page

Just last month, Project Pinball hosted over 30 IFPA endorsed tournaments across the US, all to help raise money for the effort, and just this past week some of the fruits of that labor were realized as they installed a brand new Star Trek Pro at a children's hospital in St. Louis Missouri.

So all I have left to say is: "Are YOU an Aficionado???"
