76ers 2021 Earned Jersey leaked in-store
There is another Sixers jersey on the way. After a previous leak, we have an in person look at the Sixers new Earned uniform. The last time the earned uniforms were seen was during the second half of the 2018/2019 season. Traditionally given to the 16 NBA teams that earned playoff bids the previous year, it looks like all 16 have been announced. The 76ers 2018 Earned uniform was the white rendition of the grey uniform worn that season.
Here is a look at the leaked jersey:
The jersey seems to be based on the 2020 city uniform and the 2017 City, copying that same off-white tone. The idea of the Liberty Bell being the focus is something seen in a majority of logos but not a uniform. It looks better than the drawn mock-up but interesting to see how it will look on the court.
The number font looks out of place but the idea of it is interesting. Compared to the mock-up, you can see stars on the right side of the uniform with stripes on the left. This small detail makes a worlds difference in terms of design. For reference, the NBA announced their 2019 Earned uniforms December 12th of 2018 so the announcement could be soon,
This would be joining the red Phila Statement uniform entering its second and final season. The current City uniform have seemed to been a big hit with Sixers fans and hopefully this will too.
