Usually when a list based on the national spectrum of sports is produced, the only way Philadelphia falls near the top is if it is regarding rowdy fans or incidents in history that the rest of the national won’t seem to forget.
There is one recent list that brings a positive compliment Philly’s way.
ESPN ranked the top sports uniforms by city in a segment for Uni Watch. Philadelphia ranked fourth, behind only Boston, Pittsburgh and Chicago.
“From team to team, from top to bottom, not a stinker in the bunch,” writes Paul Lukas. “Philly fans may be notorious for booing, but they certainly have nothing to complain about when it comes to their teams’ uniforms.”
The rankings include the Sixers new uniforms, unveiled prior to the NBA Draft and yet to make an appearance on the court.
The four teams scored an overall 8.38 out of 10 on the scoring scale. The Phillies top the list with a 9.5 score. Each of the remaining three teams – the Eagles, Flyers and Sixers – scored 8 out of 10.
