I’m going to have to get me one of those awesome T-shirts they are selling before the weekend is up! In the photo we have Hank Chien, Steve Sanders, Billy Mitchell, and Richie Knucklez flashing the horns. Look up in the upper right corner, over the Punch-Out machine, you can see a photo of the original Life magazine ‘greatest arcade game players’ photo shoot from back in 1982.
