Atari Pac-Man Expert Button - Omaha, Nebraska - Early 1980's

This button came from a video/video game store in Omaha, Nebraska. Probably 1981, if I recall. Whatever year Atari 2600 Pac-Man came out.

 

My brother and I got this button when our mother purchased Pac-Man for us. Had to drive two hours to Omaha, to go to the mythical Bijou Video (on Dodge Street) to get it.

 

And as horrible as this conversion was, I played it for countless hours on that little Atari, and a black-and-white TV to boot.

 

Important to note here, my brother scanned the original button, which was quite faded. I cleaned it up and brought back it's colors in Photoshop, and then turned it back into a button.

 

This was part of a collage I am still creating that will become side-art for my brother's arcade machine.
