NHL Pro Set Celebrity Captain Card
Card #297 from the 1992 NHL Pro Set.
The soft voice of Pittsburgh Penguins Celebrity Captain Fred (Mr.) Rogers has resounded over radio and television for more than 35 years. The composer, musician, writer and producer developed his first children's program in 1953 for WQED, the nation's first community-supported public television station. During the seven years of The Children's Corner, he began studying theology and child development. He was ordained by the Pittsburgh Presbytery in 1962 with a charge to continue his work with children and families through the media.
Rogers began appearing on Misterogers in 1963, and distribution to PBS affiliates began in 1968. The show, which became Mister Rogers' Neighborhood in 1969, contains nearly 600 episodes and reaches seven million families each week. Through a nonprofit corporation, Rogers produces a variety of materials to encourage the healthy emotional growth of children and their families.
