NO SPACE FOR QUARTERS

Millions of years ago, if a geek wanted to play video games, they had to take a pocketful of quarters to the mall where darkened rooms filled with 6-foot-tall cabinets bleeped and blooped in glowing 8-bit goodness. We had to use our imaginations and believe that jagged white lines were massive hurtling asteroids, and that a triangle was your intrepid starship attempting to navigate the void.

That was our first introduction to Atari, and those amazing Centipede and Tempest cabinets convinced us that we needed a way to play without quarters – a way to play from the comfort of our own homes. Not only were the floors at home less sticky, but also it gave us time to commune with the games enough that we could find things like Warren Robinett’s Adventure Easter egg. Get rid of the quarters and remember a time when you had to use the A/V switcher to play your Atari 2600 with this wallet.

Doctor Who TARDIS and Flowers Handbag

When we were little, we were so jealous of the kids who got to have a toy store shopping spree on TV. It would be so awesome to have unlimited money (even with limited time to spend it). We wonder if the Doctor ever uses his psychic paper as a credit card… or maybe he just makes savvy investments in the stock market. That’s a unique anomaly called “Bigger on the Insider Trading.”

Pac-Man High Score T-Shirt

Whether you took the yellow ball home or you gave up an entire roll of quarters at the local arcade, you know the importance of the coveted high score. Always seemingly out of reach, until, one day, the planets aligned and you gobbled up all those pellets and fruits better than anyone that came before you! At least… anyone in a 5 mile radius. Still impressive!

Atari Black Katakana Flat Brim Cap

Ready Player One may be a 2018 movie, but this hat reflects a simpler time. A time when Space Invaders was the pinnacle of gaming awesomeness. A time when E.T. got buried in the desert.
