Sixers’ “City Edition” uniforms nod to Philly’s historical roots

By Josh Liddick, Sports Talk Philly editor

The Sixers finally unveiled their newest addition to their uniform set, the "City" Edition uniform on Wednesday morning.

The uniforms feature a cream colored base, with a blue script font to celebrate the history of the City of Philadelphia and it's revolutionary heritage.

The Sixers explained the origins of the uniform in their release on Wednesday.

The Philadelphia 76ers and StubHub proudly celebrate the experience of live moments that never fade away.

Inspired by the 1776 signing of the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia, with its parchment color and the “Phila” lettering in “signature” script, the City Edition celebrates the revolutionary spirit of the city of Philadelphia. The trim features crisp red, white and blue stripes. The “76” on the side of the shorts was inspired by the Bi-centennial celebration held in Philadelphia in 1976 in honor of the 200th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

This is our nod to the people of this great city who’ve been in it for signature moments since the very beginning.

Cream has always been an historic nod to Philly and their uniforms, as the Phillies and Flyers have both had jerseys that featured cream as a main color of the uniform.

Now, the Sixers get to join that, but with a great script font, and a new "76" logo on the shorts.
