Hockey beyond the Iron Curtain...

I risked a great deal to smuggle these to you, but I was able to get my hands on a media guide comic from the Mezhdunarodnaya Federatsiya Sotsialisticheskogo Hokkeya (International Socialist Hockey Federation). So that I don't compromise my source, I can only share one page at a time, so here we go.

 

The ISHF is an 8 team league all from Warsaw Pact nations. The first team I was able to get info on is the Baikonur Cosmonauts from the Kazakh SSR.

Easily one of the coolest ideas for a concept series I’ve seen in a while, and the way you’re doing it is really creative. I’m in love with this already, and the logo looks fantastic, reminds me of Marvin the Martian for some reason

Thanks for all the feedback, it does appear that the Cosmonauts have a similar look to the Fort Wayne Komets, however, the orange uniforms were really meant to copy a cosmonaut's suit with an orange body and white gloves and helmet. The black pants break up the look and add balance, as they looked pretty rough in all orange.

 

Good news folks, my source was able to smuggle me another page, this time from East Berlin. He has assured me that he will be able to deliver the rest, however I do worry for his safety.

With security cracking down around the Berlin Wall, I'm not sure what my source will be able to get me, so I'll share another tonight. From the Ukrainian SSR, the Kiev Tridents.

It is nice) but trident? in soviet era communists hated this symbol very much, because they fought against UPR(Ukrainian People's Republic) which used trident as coat of arms. 

Nevertheless, this is very cool idea

Wasn't the Trident also an American nuclear sub that was stationed in Turkey as a deterrent against the USSR?
