'82-83 Philadelphia 76ers
Championship Throwback T-Shirt


The roll call t-shirt has a long, storied evolution. First came Experimental Jetset's famed Beatles tee. This was soon followed by the great NWA variation. Then Undrcrwn began pressing NBA starting fives to the cotton, which in turn led to our own classic spoof: the 1998 Bullets Bench Tee.

At this point, it was clear that this fashion meme was pretty well played out.

Which is why this '82-83 76ers shirt is one of our all-time favorites. Because it just might just represent the earliest known example of the roll call genre in fashion history.

We stumbled across this greatness while half-watching an NBA Classics documentary about the 76ers' championship season. In amongst the interviews, and the game films, came a quick cut to a Philly crowd outside the arena, where this crafty, fashion-forward local, flips the flow:



Little Mo (Maurice Cheeks),
Big Mo (Moses Malone),
The Doctor (Julius Erving),
Andrew Toney,
and Iavaroni,
no baloney,
Sixers all the way...


We knew at once what we had to do: re-issue this great moment in fanwear. The only thing we changed? We swapped out those orange inks, and restored the shirt in vintage 76ers colors.
