4. For more information on the Blues, you should visit/bookmark these great websites:

A. I personally think Wikipedia keeps getting better and better with each passing year – here is the Blues Wikipedia site:

B. For a great season-by-season summary of each Blues season:

C. These guys do a great job of team (and player) stats for all active and defunct franchises

D. For some good info about arenas past, present and future, visit this site (and don’t be fooled by the their name – even though it’s ballparks dot com, they do a good job on hockey arenas too):

E. For great stats on past and present players and prospects, these guys do an amazing job:

5. Celebrate the Blues' jersey history by owning a famous piece of jersey artwork:
If you love the St. Louis Blues and the history of the Blues franchise, you might really love to own an original piece of artwork celebrating the team's historic jerseys as seen in the poster at the top of this blog - you can actually own one of those original pieces of art! There are only 14 pieces of original art available for sale, and when these 14 are sold, that's it, they're all sold out.

These original watercolor paintings would make a great gift (birthday gift, anniversary gift, retirement gift, Christmas gift, etc.) for someone you love or even a great gift for yourself (one of these framed pieces would look fantastic in your home or office). Each piece can be bought one of three ways:
1. As unframed art that you could have framed or mounted yourself (the one on the left)
2. Framed in our "Classic" framed version (the middle version)
3. Framed in our "Deluxe" framed version (the version on the right)

If you would like more information about this great artwork including the three ways you could purchase each piece, please visit our St. Louis Blues YouTube video at or go directly to the artwork website where you can see and purchase the artwork.

And if someone you know loves the history of sports uniforms (but maybe another team) and loves great art, please let them know that we have over 1500 pieces of great original artwork for sale at (all NFL teams, all MLB teams, all NHL teams, all CFL teams, select NCAA football teams) or check out each team's video at the Heritage Sports Art YouTube Channel .

6. The original pen and ink drawings of the arenas shown above are also for sale.
Please note that the actual original, highly detailed, hand-drawn pen and ink sketches used for the 2 arena images shown above are available for sale as a complete collection to one Blues fan. If you are interested in being the one and only owner of this complete and original collection of St. Louis Blues arena images, please contact me by email and I can explain how they can all be framed in one beautiful piece.

  1. The Blues home jersey is one of the most eccentric in the NHL in my opinion. Not too crazy about their plain alternate jerseys though. Too much like the Blue Jackets alternates.


Thank you for taking the time to add a comment - all input is welcome, especially the constructive kind! All the best - Scott
