This Old Game was first turned on back in 1999 with the purchase of my first arcade machine, Space Invaders.
The first thing I noticed was the worn out metal control panel.
At the time I was working in architectural graphics screenprinting in Houston, Texas.
Where we did high end signage for clients like Enron, and the stadium for the Houston Astros.
So silk screened anodized panels like this was something I did almost on a regular basis.
So when I set out to do my reproduction for it, I only thought Id be making this for myself I had no idea these were collected, restored and was a hobby around the world.
I put a few extras I ran on ebay and the response I got was incredible and I've been making them along with thousands of reproductions for arcade game restorations ever since.
