Did you play stickball and skelly as a kid – or wish you did? If so, Robert Feingold's got a T-shirt or two for you.

“I want people to remember the good old days in Brooklyn,” said Feingold, 47, who designs nostalgia-drenched tees he calls ChestRockers that he sells on Fifth Avenue in Park Slope.

There's one with stickball equipment on it, another with a skelly square, another showing kids playing Johnny on the Pony. His stoop ball shirt is a big seller.

Feingold, who grew up in Canarsie and played all these urban games, sells the $20 cotton shirts at Mailboxes on 5th, at 172 Fifth Ave.  
If you were a complete couch potato as a kid, maybe you'll like a shirt that says “Hello Brooklyn” with Mr. Spock from “Star Trek” giving his “live long and prosper” Vulcan salute.

Feingold, who now lives in Park Slope, launched his T-shirt line in 2012. “I wanted to find a niche nobody else has,” he said.
