New Phillies and Sixers Hats Embody Iconic Philadelphia
Outside of our sports teams and our not-so-nice fans, Philly is known for a few things – like the iconic Liberty Bell and of course, cheesesteaks. A new hat design from New Era for both the Phillies and the 76ers hats feature a Liberty Bell logo on the front and a cheesesteak one on the back- embodying everything special about Philly!
New Era is known for having several different designs for hats of our favorite sports, ranging from baseball to football to soccer. The company has plenty of styles for the Phillies, ranging from the vintage Phillies look to St. Patrick’s Day themed Phillies hats. The hat design is a part of a new line called Team Describe for select NBA and MLB teams, and the reaction about our beloved Phillies hat is mixed.
Personally, I think the hat design is pretty cool, but others aren’t necessarily on board. Brooke Destra of NBC Sports writes, “I promise you, designers of the world, there is more to Philadelphia than just cheesesteaks. And even though there are most certainly fans that will purchase them, the majority are looking at this and wondering … what the heck is this?”
Another person, Phillies beat writer Meghan Montemurro wrote:
Though reactions are varied about the new hat design, I’m positive that plenty of Philly sports fans will be buying one! The Team Design Philadelphia Phillies Hat goes for $39.99 on the New Era website.
What do you think of the design? Will you get one?
