The Spectrum, or America's Showplace, called South Philly its home from 1967 to 2009 and played host to just about everything under the sun. The 76ers and Flyers each won championships while playing there, including ten championship series in total. Two Final Fours took place on site, both won by Indiana coach Bob Knight. The Grateful Dead (53 times), Bruce Springsteen (42 times), and Aerosmith (23 times) were among the musical legends known to frequent the arena as well as countless others. The list goes on and on, cementing The Spectrum's value as a venue for sport and art.
Also available as a hooded sweatshirt.
65% poly / 35% cotton
FUN FACT: 11 different teams called the Spectrum home at one time or another.

I love how it pays homage to where the Philadelphia greats called home! Should’ve ordered a size bigger though.
Great Father’s Day gift!
I think this is the 5th shirt I’ve purchased from Shibe Vintage Sports for my husband. He loves them all. I just recently shared their information on Facebook to all my friends who will will remember the great places represented on their shirts. Many have moved to other states, but will get a kick out of these memories. I’m thinking sweatshirts would be nice. Hint!
