Drawing on their love of soccer heritage, the enthusiasts behind Bumpy Pitch clothing company and lifestyle site The Original Winger recently created a collection of prints inspired by vintage transit signage. The line, called Flying Junction, modeled after subway and bus rollsigns from the early 1900s, uses hand-lettering techniques to make them look more authentically retro.

Printed with soy ink on archival recycled canvas or paper, much of the current stock is NYC-focused, but Flying Junction's Ben Hooper explains they will continue to feature cities around the world, and are working on a line of t-shirts and other products for the near future.

Flying Junction prints currently sell online from Etsy, and span $20-130 depending on size and style.
