Fugliest uni's ever. The stripes on the pants don't even match the stripes on the helmet. I have feeling dieon sanders had a part in us adding black to the unis.
uhh....their actually based on the team's 1955 uniforms (and were worn during the NFL's 75th anniversary season in 1994, the last time the Niners won the Super Bowl) : http://www.gridironuniforms.com/49ers.html
Re: Deion Sanders read this--
''The team first donned the 1955 throwback uniforms during their week 3 match against the Los Angeles Rams and the following week at home versus the Saints, with both being wins (coincidentally, these were also the first two games Deion Sanders played after signing as a free-agent with the 49ers). The team then suffered an embarrassing 40-8 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles at home wearing their regular uniforms with gold pants, with Steve Young angrily being benched to prevent him getting injured. For the subsequent three games until their BYE week, the team again was scheduled to play games wearing the throwback uniforms with white pants and dropshadows, and all three games resulted in wins. As the 49ers embarked during the following weeks on what would eventually be a 10-game winning streak that ultimately culminated in a Super Bowl XXIX victory, the team (prompted both by the superstition of then coach George Seifert, as well as the preference of players) petitioned the NFL to wear the throwback uniforms for the rest of the season, which was granted.''
it was mere coincidence....there are rare pics from the eagles-niners game that year where deion is wearing the regular 49ers uni with the gold pants.
