The Denver Nuggets have rocked some of the best jerseys in the history of basketball, so it’s nice to see the team and its uniforms getting some love from the larger basketball world. Pop Chart Lab, a site who states their mission as aspiring to “assemble, sift, cull, and arrange massive amounts of cultural data into meaningful works of art and information,” recently released a poster featuring 165 of the slickest basketball jerseys of all-time. The “visual compendium” features jerseys from NBA and ABA teams, as well as memorable looks from other pop culture properties, including the jersey worn by the Western University Dolphins in 1994’s Blue Chips and the TuneSquad jersey that Michael Jordan wore in 1996’s Space Jam.

The Nuggets are well represented with seven jerseys featured on the poster:

  • The 1976 “PickAxe” jerseys worn by the likes of David Thompson and Dan Issel.
  • The 1982 “Rainbow Skyline” jerseys (which, in my opinion, remain the single best jersey ever worn by any NBA team).
  • The 1993 “Dark Blue/Maroon/Gold” jerseys worn by the Nuggets squad that shocked the Seattle SuperSonics (and the world) in 1994.
  • The 2005 “Navy” alternate jerseys.
  • The 2005 “Celebrity All-Star” jerseys worn by the likes of Jermaine Dupri, Nelly, and Brian McKnight.
  • The 2009 “Green Week” alternate jerseys.
  • The 2012 “Gold Skyline” alternate jerseys the team currently wears.

Each print of the poster is signed and numbered and available in a 24″ x 36″ format suitable for framing.  Available to order from the Pop Chart Lab site for $28, there’s no doubt this would make a great gift for any Nuggets or basketball fan in your life.
