Although they leaked in early March, the San Francisco 49ers officially unveiled the home version of their 1994 throwback uniforms during their annual State of the Franchise event on Wednesday night.
The scarlet jerseys feature drop shadow numbers and three stripes on the sleeves, while the gold helmet includes throwback oval decals and the franchise’s Saloon font on the front bumper. The look is complete with white pants with black and red stripes down the side, the same pants San Francisco has worn with the road version of this uniform in each of the past three seasons.
Originally unveiled in 1994 as part of the NFL’s league-wide celebration of its 75th season, the uniforms are based on what the 49ers looked like in 1955. They ended up becoming a good luck charm, of sorts, as the franchise wore them throughout the playoffs on the way to a victory over the then-San Diego Chargers in Super Bowl XXIX.
This year’s throwback jersey will also include San Francisco’s diamond-shaped 75th anniversary patch, which was the same shape as the patch worn by teams during the NFL’s 75th season.
The uniforms will make their on-field debut in the 49ers’ home opener against Green Bay on Sept. 26. They’ll also be worn against the Indianapolis Colts on Oct. 24, Los Angeles Rams on Nov. 15 and Atlanta Falcons on Dec. 19, while the road version will make an appearance against the Seattle Seahawks on Dec. 5 and the Tennessee Titans on Dec. 23.
