To set the record straight, this:
is technically NOT the new jersey, but a customizable replica that has been on NFL Shop and the 49ers Store sites for over a year now. Though it slightly resembles the upcoming new jerseys, nevertheless the numbers are too thin and there is no "49ers" wordmark below the collar.
From the appearance of the jerseys leaked on cell pics this:
is what most likely will debut on Saturday.
Those jerseys shown on the NFL Shop's website are not and never where alternate jerseys. Show me a picture with our players or fans wearing throwbacks with numbers on the shoulders. The letters are thinner because they are generic just to advertise that it's custom. I'm not sure as to when they first where available on their website but I have been looking through these shop's websites hoping for a leak since March and never saw these till recently. NFL screwed up and categorized these incorrectly and leaked them out.
Note that they are not available on the 49ers shop website.
If I'm mistaken I'm sure someone has ordered one already and can post a pic. Perhaps the graphics department screwed up and digitally placed the numbers in the wrong place for the add, after all not everbody can tell the difference. But other than the team name missing above the number on the chest, these are it.
