“The uniform may have had a short-lived moment in the spotlight, but we consider it a classic that emerged as time passed and is a true vintage treasure to the ‘Seventy Sixers’ brand to be shared with our passionate fans,” Philadelphia 76ers President Chris Heck said.

These Classic Edition uniforms will be one of five the team will wear this season, joining the Icon, Association, City and Statement.

The uniforms will be available to fans when they go on sale on Oct 1.
