Collectible: Rare Mac Gaming Leather Jacket
I thought you might interested in this. Not exactly hard core developer
news -- but a nice holiday weekend post nevertheless. :)
Back in 1996, the Apple Game Sprockets team made a set of incredibly cool
leather jackets to promote the Mac as a "Serious Game Hardware" machine.
They took a really cool $500 bomber jacket -- and then embroidered them
with a special and fairly complex design on the back. The logo includes a
special camouflage Apple logo, target and game weaponry. (See picture at
ONLY 20 of these jackets were made -- and are extremely rare. In fact,
other than the ones that we have/had, I've only seen one other.
MacTech was fortunate enough to get a few of these some time back -- and
the other day, I came across an extra one in my closet at home that had
never been worn.
This jacket is now on auction on eBay. If you are interested -- or want to
see a picture, check out:
This is a KILLER jacket -- anyone that is serious about Macintosh gaming
would love to have it!
Please let anyone you know that might be interested know about it.
