    Post a pic or two of your favorite pinball t-shirts, or of your pinball t-shirt collection.
    How many have you got now?

    To me, it's sort of like having pinball machines. At first you're like:
    Hey, that's a cool pinball shirt. I might as well have a pinball t-shirt to wear at festivals/expos/tournaments/league night/etc.
    Then, a couple years later, you find that one has now turned into several pinball related t-shirts.

    I'll have to dig through my t-shirts to check, but I believe I've got about eight pinball t-shirts now.

    I got stacks of them here, so much so that they cant fit in my dresser drawers anymore. I forgot to buy one at the Ohio show this year so I'm bummed about that but in the long run I'll never miss it.
    I quit buying Chicago Expo shirts many years ago since it was the same design year after year and just the date changed and they were always printed on the front (which I wont wear). Most of them now a days come from my own parties. Here's a couple of examples.

    We still have some of these T-shirts left from the 4th Annual Point Monsters Championship at The Pinball Asylum two weeks ago. The shirt features Algar playing an Asylum Monster pinball with Gorgar and Dragon (BAO!) standing by. Your purchase supports our 501c3 charity and IFPA sanctioned venue! PM me if you would like one.

    The Project Pinball t-shirts that I see most often are the bright green ones, which is also the color I have.
    Here is a pic of Jodester wearing his during a pinball tournament he held earlier in June in sw Louisiana to help raise $$ for Project Pinball.

    .
    According to Project Pinball website, the colors they offer are for their t-shirts are: blue, green, and black.
    I've seen a lot of green ones, some black ones, but I don't recall seeing many blue ones out at festivals/expos/tournaments.

    Got one of these last year....pretty sweet!

    .
    I already have a 2012 TPF t-shirt, and another one from 2014 TPF.
    Both of those are black t-shirts, so I was happy to get a different color this past TPF.

    I picked up the spooky pinball work shirt at the Rocky Mountain snow this weekend. I think that's my official o to pinball party shirt now. I'm ready to start adding patches!

    #12 3 years ago

    Lookin good Mike ! Hope you don't mind, as this seems the perfect thread for the asking. Chicago Expo 2014 was my 1st, and I waited too long to buy an awesome shirt. Anyone wanna sell their XL ? Pit stains free of charge ? Also looking for an XL Pinball Life Explosion 2015 shirt.
    Thanks Mike. Yer a helluva guy.

    Good one GIR,
    Got to have some pics of Pinside t-shirts posted in this thread.

    Here's a pic of another Pinside t-shirt.
    I think the guy wearing it is a famous clothing model in the Netherlands, or he plays pinball, or something like that.

    Original BK2000 T-shirt (Size Large) purchased 1990 through Williams, as they still had a few leftovers.
    Now, 27+ years old since production, still in a frame.
    Good heavy quality too, not that cheap $#!@ that is made today.

    This was part of the promotional ad campaign you see on playfields at the allen screw lock point to rotate the upper playfield for service.
    "Authentic Black Knight T-shirt, $14.95, Call 1-800-347-5300"

    Own around a dozen other oddities of the T-shirt variety in my collection, mostly promotional items.
    Stern has some good ones now, that are not promotional, while they last.

    Some of the latest Stern shirts and the limited run of the Dirty Donny Metallica T-shirt through the MET club (sold out).

    The "El Día de los Muertos" Stern shirt is rather fitting considering what is happening with their latest production runs, cost reductions, quality control issues, price testing, and experimental changes in playfield coatings . Next thing we know people may be protesting at the factory entrance with picket signs.

    Actually pulled some shirts out and underestimated how many I have. Posting a couple of my favorites..

    The Spooky T and PAPA Pop and Bumper shirts are my kids. I don't think PAPA does these shirts anymore and it is one of my favorites.

    2012 & 2014 TPF t-shirts

    Artwork for the 2012 TPF t-shirt is related to Gottlieb's 1975 Fast Draw & Quick Draw pinball machines (Gordon Morison did the artwork back then)

    #30 3 years ago

    Here's a few pinball t-shirt pics I found online that are pretty cool.

    Stormtroopers obviously aren't expected to wear a pinball t-shirt at pinball festivals/expos.
    We like it that they are in uniform, and looking out for those darn meddling droids.

    A lot of great pinball t-shirts out there. Thank you all for posting some pics. Some I had never seen before for sure.

    Any others to post pics of?

    Have a great weekend Pinsiders. Summer is full on now.
    It is hot as heck down here in south Louisiana (102 F heat index due to humidity, and still getting hotter later today).

    #36 3 years ago

    I picked one of these up at TPF this year from Double Danger.

    Great shirt...those dang sling shot drains (shakes fist in the air)

    #42 3 years ago

    Need more licensed game shirts. There has to be a market. I'd buy one for all the games I own and like.

    #43 3 years ago
    Quoted from pinkid:

    licensed game shirts

    Previously I had found this site for Gottlieb pinball machine related t-shirts, mugs, coasters, etc.

    http://www.cafepress.com/gottlieb_pinball/s__t-shirts-clothing

    I see from looking at your collection Pinkid that you are more interested in older Bally pinball titles.

    #44 3 years ago

    Even though I'm not against people talking to me while I play pinball, I had to buy this one:

    Not actually a pinball t-shirt. More of a Pinside Forum related t-shirt.
    I thought about buying it as sort of a joke to wear at pinball festivals/expos, but couldn't talk myself into it.
    The right Pinsider could pull it off and get some laughs out of it at TPF or other major events.
