Activision was one of the first companies in gaming history to credit the programmer for creating a game.

Activision used to offer fabric patches (the one's you stitch on your jacket) for players that achieved high scores on their games. Players were to send in a photograph of their TV with their high score showing (as proof) and mail it in. Activision would then send back a patch.

The patches were intended for games of the Atari 2600, Atari 5200, Intellivision, and Colecovision platforms. Not all Activision games offered patches however. These patches now are highly collectible items by the way.
