49ers blackout games

Besides the 49ers game against the Steelers on MNF (power issue), does anyone know when the last 49ers home game was blacked out due to not selling enough seats? I can't seem to find any information if they have had a game blacked out and if so, when.

Best Answer

Sellout streaks through the end of the 2008 regular season:
1. Washington Redskins ... 327.
2. Pittsburgh Steelers ... 307.
3. Denver Broncos ... 301.
4. San Francisco 49ers ... 267

So subtract 267 regular season games starting from 2008, there's your answer
See, I always knew Jerry Rice was the best. Thanks for your time.

By the way you don't have to sell out. You only need to sell a certain percentage. So it could be longer then that.
