Tetris Ultimate Signed by Creator Alexey Pajitnov
Everyone knows Tetris. It’s the game with the Russian folk lore Korobeiniki music playing that gets stuck in your head after playing one round. Well something truly special popped up on auction. A Tetris Ultimate Signed by Creator Alexey Pajitnov (link here).
Tetris Ultimate came out in 2014 and this print copy was signed by the man himself.
Details of the Tetris Ultimate Signed by Creator Alexey Pajitnov
Some people might pass on this auction as Tetris is just another game to them. But here’s why you shouldn’t. T
etris is one of the most iconic games in video game history, and made by legendary video game creator Alexey Pajitnov.
Alexey doesn’t sign many things and his appearances are quite rare, so to see this pop up is pretty cool.
Here’s the sellers description:
“You are purchasing a special limited edition print for the video game ULTIMATE TETRIS that was autographed in-person by Tetris creator Alexey Pajitnov at a special meet-and-greet event that took place on Sunday August 31, 2014 held at the Paramount Theater during the PAX Prime 2014 gaming convention.
Those who attended this special two hour event received one unsigned print and then could have it signed provided they waited in a rather long line.
The print is 11×17 inches in size and was signed boldly in Sharpie ink and will ship flat protected in a semi-rigid Ultra Pro top loader protective sleeve.
The print itself does have some minor warping on it due to carrying it around after it was signed but the sleeve helps to keep it flat and if a person was to frame it, it should look great. I have provided an image of the actual print, please click on it to make it larger.
This is my only one available for purchase, and would make a great unique gift for fans of the game Tetris as it can be quite difficult finding items signed by this legendary video game creator.”
Pretty cool, however, if I knew Alexey Pajitnov was going to be at a convention I was attending to I’d bring out the original Tetris NES box to get signed as that is what I grew up on.
I know this was for the PAX Prime 2014 convention so they provided the latest Tetris game there, but wouldn’t hurt to bring your own copy.
The auction has a $69.99 buy-it-now price tag on it and is still available at the time of this posting. Seller is located in Seattle.
