NEW YORK, NY, -- Inspired by the Philadelphia 76ers’ City Edition uniforms and the Italian Stallion’s warm-up clothes from the film Rocky, Philly Phenom artist M. Fitz has created a limited-edition serigraph to celebrate the 76ers’ 2019 post-season journey.
Officially licensed and approved by the NBA, NBA Players Association and MGM, this serigraph will launch Thursday, April 4th at the Wells Fargo Center, during the Philadelphia 76ers’ game against the Milwaukee Bucks. It will also be available for purchase online at www.phenomgallery.com. The artwork, featuring J.J. Redick, Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Jimmy Butler, mascot Franklin and Rocky Balboa, is hand-signed and numbered by the artist, with a limited run of 200 pieces.
"Both Rocky Balboa and the Philadelphia 76ers. capture the passion and hard-working attitude of the city of Philadelphia," says Matthew Hoffman, President of Phenom Gallery. “This print takes past and present iconic figures that will carry that vision into the 2019 NBA post-season.”
