Last night, a couple of us went down to the Wells Fargo center to welcome Game 3 of the first round playoff series to Philadelphia. Heading into last night’s match, the Sixers trailed 2-0…
Despite the outcome, just being in the arena and in the playoff atmosphere really got us amped up over the 76ers and after digging into our archives found some great memorabilia, articles and photos around the office. Enjoy!

This is an ad for Ticketron out of a 1970 game program boasting the “convenience” of their locations. Ticketron was purchased by Ticketmaster in 1991.
Ticket from 1993 with Sixers rookie starting center Shawn Bradley on the front. The ticket is from November 5th, 1993, when the 76ers Sixers topped the Washington Bullets 94-82. Bradley had six points. You may also know Shawn Bradley from his work in Space Jam.

March 23, 1955, Moses Eugene Malone was born in Petersburg, Virginia. He played in the ABA (American Basketball Association) as well as the NBA (National Basketball Association). A three time NBA MVP, Malone went straight from Petersburg High School to being drafted in 1974 by the ABA's Utah Stars. After a twenty one year professional basketball career and nineteen seasons in the NBA Moses finished with a championship ring and a NBA finals trophy won with his Philadelphia 76ers teammates in 1983, also being named the NBA Finals MVP that year. He has a laundry list of honors earned during his career that we could go on and on about. (Click below to read more of his stats and honors)
We thought we would celebrate his birthday with this awesome Sports Illustrated Cover from June 6, 1983 pictured at the top and include his Mitchell & Ness home and road jerseys from that same year! Hope you enjoy!
