The art of the day comes courtesy of Pop Chart Lab who is selling this awesome “Visual Compendium of Basketball Jerseys” for just $35.
This all-star jam of 165 basketball jerseys across time and space is a stunning survey of the sartorial side of swishing and dishing. Starting with the New York Celtics in 1921, this ballin’ breakdown boasts time-tested three-point threads from dapper dunkers throughout hoops history, including trey-cool fashion centerpieces like the ’72 Nets, the ’89 Magic, all manner of globe-trotting Harlemites, and even a selection of pop culture jerseys like the inimitable Tune Squad and Monstars from the 1996 documentary Space Jam. Also features the many custom tops of hip-hop, and vintage throwbacks that harken to a time of high-pulled shorts and socks.
Perfect for posting up on your wall, this is one dazzling documentation of fashion-forward designs that will never fade away. Boom shakalaka!
