If any of you have played the arcade game RoadBlasters. There is a T-Shirt giveaway if you complete Level 50 and a code given to you and you must submit the info and send it to the following address. I know this is from 1987 and there is no expired date posted. I never had the time to play it through in a while so I fired it up on mame and did a playthrough of it tonight and for the heck of it I was curious what would happen after I sent the entry to Atari. Is there any of you that have received the RoadBlasters T-Shirt? I highly doubt there are any shirts remaining, but I will keep you guys posted on the outcome.  :)

Whaaaaaat?!?  :wreck-it-ralph: Wow...and now we wait to see what happens to Retrogamer's submission.  Hopefully it doesn't have to travel to China first. ;)

If I recall, S.T.U.N. Runner did a T-Shirt giveaway for those that reached a certain distance in Stage 23 "The Ultimate Challenge" stage. The giveaway ended sometime in 1990.

KLAX was another Atari arcade game with a t-shirt offer, too. Instead of having to beat the game, you just mailed a check or money order for $11.95 directly to Atari! I wonder if any of these shirts could be found on eBay or classic gaming meet ups? There was even a screen in the arcade game advertising the shirt, with a digitized picture of the front and back:
