As controversial as a lot of things about the Philadelphia 76ers have been over the past few years, you have to give them one thing: They’ve consistently nailed the visuals. Their most recent uniforms are among the cleanest in the NBA, a perfect combination of retro and modern that’s tasteful without being boring. And their newly announced alternate jerseys that honor the 50th anniversary of the 1967 championship team are no exception. You can take a look at them above.
In addition to the new uniforms, the Sixers have unveiled an alternate court that will be used on six “Salute Saturday” tribute nights. According to the team, the court will be signed by season-ticket holders.
The campaign, “Spirit of the Champion: Celebrating 50 Since ’66-‘67”, includes the first tribute center court signed by Sixers Full Season Ticket Members, collectible tickets and ticket boxes for Season Ticket Members, the unveiling of sculptures honoring 1966-67 legends Wilt Chamberlain, Billy Cunningham, Hal Greer and more. Sixers players will wear hardwood classics throwback jerseys inspired by the 1966-67 road uniforms during six “Salute Saturday” night tribute games presented by StubHub.
They’ve also unveiled a new patch for the shorts to go with these alternate jerseys, which is gorgeous in its own right.
As if there weren’t enough reasons to watch the Sixers this season (namely, the NBA debuts of Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid and Dario Saric), they’ll also be one of the nicest teams to look at.
