I really like this tshirt by chopshop: silhouettes of 23 of the world's great space missions. $5 of each $23 t-shirt price is donated to The Planetary Society.
23 historic missions in total (with an additional 6 separations) that are recognized for their notable achievements to various celestial bodies in our solar system with targets including the Sun, planets and their moons, comets and asteroids. Nearly every icon represents a specific robotic explorer (or series) with the exception of the Apollo program which continues to be the single human endeavor to ever go beyond the cradle.
