As you know, I am a geek when it comes to team uniforms. Every uniform tells a piece of history and adds to the staple of a team’s identity. And growing up as a 49ers fan, I had always appreciated the team’s simple usage of their red and gold on their set.
Then in 1994, my eyes were opened to a new/old uniform set that blew my mind.
That season, the NFL celebrated their 75th anniversary and teams had the option of wearing throwbacks during that season. The 49ers decided to wear a set from the 1950s and it was something I was not ready for.
