Most of my life revolves around sports (for better or for worse). I spend a lot of my time following, watching, analyzing, reading about, and writing about sports. My passion for sports is reflected in my wardrobe, as what I wear on a daily basis usually has to do with (yup you guessed it) sports.
I am the kind of sports fan that loves jerseys. Some fans stay away from buying jerseys (probably due to the fact of that they are expensive and can lose value when a player changes teams), which is completely fine. These non-jersey buyers tend to go to the route of wearing shirseys (the much cheaper jersey alternative) or just a simple t-shirt of their favorite team.
Ever since I was a young kid I have been a jersey lover. I like wearing jerseys because of the authenticity they hold. Over time I have collected over 200 jerseys, all coming from the four major sports. Of the jerseys I own, the most represented teams are the Eagles and Sixers (my two favorite teams). I am confident that my collection of Sixers jerseys is strong (and somewhat embarrassing) as it consists of Allen Iverson, Wilt Chamberlin, Moses Malone, Julius Erving, Andre Iguodala, Chris Webber, Michael Carter-Williams, Andre Miller, Kyle Korver, and Elton Brand.
Now, you are probably wondering why I am rambling on about jerseys and why the heck I bought an Andre Miller jersey (those were some tough years to find excitement). Well, earlier in the summer, here at The Sixer Sense George Kondoleon ranked the ten best Sixer jerseys of all time, in terms of design. Piggybacking off of that article, here is a scenario to play out in your head. What if someone had just become a Sixer fan and wanted to buy five jerseys to authenticate themselves as a true, die-hard Sixer fan? Which five jerseys would that fan choose, based off of the player as well as the specific design of the jersey? If I were to give them advice, here are the five jerseys that Sixer fan, as well as all jersey-loving Sixers fans, should own.
