"Ever since I was a young boy, I've played the silver ball. From SoHo down to Brighton, I must have played them all. But I ain't seen nothin' like him In any amusement hall. That deaf, dumb and blind kid sure plays a mean pinball..." - The Pinball Wizard
The 'Capt. Fantastic' pinball machine was inspired by the big screen rock musical, 'Tommy' which is best summed up by IMDB in a single sentence: 'A psychosomatically deaf, dumb and blind boy becomes a master pinball player and, subsequently, the object of a religious cult.' Sound absurd? Yeah, it's pretty freakin' out there. Nonetheless, Bally saw their in and created the Capt. Fantastic pinball machines which included a representation of EJ, as his character from the movie, The Pinball Wizard, while simultaneously tying into his latest album of the same name.
The backglass included several depictions of people doing things that escaped notice by Bally management before being caught mid-production. A small number of games with these so-called "X-rated" or "uncensored" backglasses made it through production before changes were required to be made. Specifically, small mirrored stars were added over the objectionable parts and, curiously, these stars did not effectively obscure the offending art in all instances. The X-rated version is often referred to as the "no stars" version even though all of the backglasses in the production run did contain a certain number of peripheral decorative stars anyway. This design is based on the "no stars" version, though not every naughty bit made the cut :)
Please refer to the size card below to help find the right size for you. Some people will say B+C shirts run a little small while others will say that they are 'true to size' so clearly, sizing is subjective at best as just like opinions, everyone's body is different. If you're on the fence about sizing, we always suggest going up a size as even high-quality pre-shrunk tees like these average about 1% shrinkage, all dependent on how you wash and dry them, of course.
