Good birthday gift for geek boyfriend costing less than $20?

My boyfriend's birthday is coming up. He made a big deal about mine because he knows I like birthdays, but he does not like birthdays and does not want me making a big deal about his. He has consented to dinner out, which I can pay for, and to a single gift costing no more than $20. I am a bit stumped!
He enjoys the store at ThinkGeek. He is a fan of novelty t-shirts (although I think that is a bit too obvious for a cool birthday gift). He likes vintage video games. He was greatly amused by the Google Maps April fools prank where they turned it all into an 8-bit Nintendo-style graphics look. He is very into baseball.
So, with this in mind, can you suggest a cool gift that is a little off the beaten path?
