I’d like to declare that the Planet Express logo was born to be on a hockey jersey. In fact, one could say the design itself was inspired by retro hockey logos. You could go a step further and say it inspired a recent design fad in the NHL.

The only knock against it would be its color scheme, which has a 1930’s ‘pack of cigarettes’ look featuring salmon and pale yellow. I did my best to work with the colors, coming up with this retro ‘vintage white’ jersey. I actually tried an aqua green jersey with red stripes to mimic the spaceship’s design, but it was ugly. Looked cool, but not something anyone would wear in public. I will post other design variations in the future.

This logo belongs to FOX/Comedy Central, or at least I think so. Everyone is selling a Planet Express T-Shirt as though it were required by law. I don’t see any ™ or  ® on the logo as well. Either way I am currently hesitant to make this one available, unless anyone can offer some insight.

UPDATE: Ask and ye shall receive. The Goggles. They do nothing.

  1. The color of the ship used in the cartoon is important, in a mild sense. There was a couple episodes that involved a type of Baseball in it, Blernsball. http://theinfosphere.org/Blernsball the numbers on the Jerseys used had more than 2 numbers on the back. they stood out as “33 1/2” or “11 7/8″…


    food for thought, either way Its an appealing piece Id gladly add to my collection.

    • I’m glad that the ship was mentioned. The (potential) jersey should absolutely have the same colour scheme as the Planet Express ship.

      2 shades of green with red trim.

    • Maybe when I do a “Geeky Baseball” spinoff, which I suspect will be a ways away.

      I get plenty of requests for Baseball, Basketball, and Bowling (Big Lebowski), so maybe one day.

      Rinkgear can only do the conventional 1 or 2 digits on the jerseys.

  2. Kinda curious how this would look using the same green as the Wild jerseys. Then again, white is probably the best choice of any colors when trying to work with the Salmon color in the logo.

  3. I would wear this proudly!!!

  4. Just promise me, that when you announce this jersey is for sell that you start off the post with, “Good news everyone!!!”

    • Darn rights I will! Though he always follows up that line with bad news.

      I should have used it for this post: “Good news everyone! These jerseys will NOT be for sale anytime soon!”

  5. I love the Captain ‘C’! Very nice touch! 😉

  6. I would be curious to at least *see* it in the aqua color of the ship, even if you do think it’s ugly. Haha. You may be surprised with how many people end up liking it!

  7. Dear god…Planet Express Ship aqua…words…should have sent a poet…I can’t wait to get my ZOIDBERG jersey. I wonder if Rinkgear will let me get a negative number on it.

  8. Must have! Available for purchase?

  9. Any news on if/when these would be available? Run into any roadblocks?

  10. I know it has been a while, but has there been any more news about this design? It looks so cool and I would hate to see it get sidelined.

    • Probably won’t happen, sorry. I almost got my foot in the door with the Planet Express license holder, but the middleman balked at offering these. Wish I could say more than that.

      • I guess we just have to hope for a miracle. By the way, I love all the stuff that is on Geeky Jersey and I am hoping to find a way to come up with the cash for the Joker one before the window closes. You guys make awesome stuff.

  11. I must have. Push harder!
    I love it! Must buy!

  12. Please please please make these. I will pay any price. PleAse
