A Visual History of Hockey Jerseys on One Awesome Poster

After the success of their Compendiums of basketball jerseys and baseball uniforms, the Brooklyn-based Pop Chart Lab is going for the hat trick with its latest poster, A Visual Compendium of Hockey Jerseys. The new poster is well-timed, arriving in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

In addition to sweaters from the history of the NHL, there are also jerseys from minor league and Olympic teams. There are classics (including several beauties from my team, the New York Rangers), sweaters from discontinued teams (hi, California Golden Seals!), and more than a few missteps (like the oh-so-'90s jersey the Tampa Bay Lightning donned in 1996 and the Sabres' 2006 "Banana Slug"). Click the image below to take a closer look.


Since making their first two compendiums, "hockey has been one of our most highly requested topics," the team says. "It helps that hockey arguably has the most visually striking jerseys in sports—for better or for worse." Hockey fans can buy the poster here.

Mister Rogers Is Now a Funko Pop! and It’s Such a Good Feeling, a Very Good Feeling

It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood for fans of Mister Rogers, as Funko has announced that, just in time for the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, the kindest soul to ever grace a television screen will be honored with a series of Funko toys, some of them limited-edition versions.

The news broke at the New York Toy Fair, where the pop culture-loving toy company revealed a new Pop Funko! in Fred Rogers’s likeness—he’ll be holding onto the Neighborhood Trolley—plus a Mister Rogers Pop! keychain and a SuperCute Plush.

In addition to the standard Pop! figurine, there will also be a Funko Shop exclusive version, in which everyone’s favorite neighbor will be wearing a special blue sweater. Barnes & Noble will also carry its own special edition, which will see Fred wearing a red cardigan and holding a King Friday puppet instead of the Neighborhood Trolley.

Mister Rogers’s seemingly endless supply of colored cardigans was an integral part of the show, and a sweet tribute to his mom (who knitted all of them). But don’t go running out to snatch up the whole collection just yet; Funko won’t release these sure-to-sell-out items until June 1, but you can pre-order your Pop! on Amazon right now.
