Orlando Magic unveils ‘classic edition’ jerseys for 35th anniversary season

ORLANDO, Fla. — The Orlando Magic are debuting a special “classic edition” jersey in honor of the NBA team’s 35th anniversary season.

Team officials said the uniform evokes emotions from the past as a replica of the style worn by the Magic from 1998-2003. They said the uniform pays homage to the “Heart and Hustle” era.


“For more than three decades, Magic fans have told stories about their love for the team and in particular this Heart and Hustle era. A team that stands for hard work and determination, leaving everything out on the court,” Orlando Magic CEO Alex Martins said. “These traits are forever woven into the 35-year fabric of our organization and bring great pride to Magic fans and our city alike. We celebrate the endless devotion of our fans with this year’s Classic Edition uniform.”
