It’s here. The 76ers have unveiled their new uniforms and it isn’t much of a drastic change from their previous ones. They have taken some elements of uniforms past and created this new identity. You can check out the gallery here.
I’ll first say that the use of “PHILA” on the front is a nice touch but I don’t like it. I always associate that with the old school and for some reason, I feel that this is forced. All other elements of the uniform look pretty nice.
Remember when these concept caps leaked? While predictable in design, it was at least pretty decent for what it was. But that was a fan concept.
Now we know what the actual caps look like and you can see a link to all of them above.
The problem here is the front panel matching the team jersey of white or gray. That doesn’t match anything the Reds ever wore. Then the stripes not even going around the entire circumference of the cap makes it worse. This is poorly designed and would look terrible on a professional player.
But money talks and that’s what MLB is going for.
