49ers reveal the 4 best-selling throwback jerseys

Aug 5, 2021 at 12:57 PM--

In June, the San Francisco 49ers revealed all-new throwback jerseys that players will wear six times this season—four at home and two on the road. The throwbacks are a callback to the home uniforms worn during the team's last championship run in 1994. Those jerseys were themselves a callback to the versions worn by the Niners in 1955.

Fans were immediately able to start purchasing jerseys of their own (get yours here) with the names and numbers of their favorite players. Today, the team revealed which players' jerseys are the best-selling. None—particularly the top two—should come as a surprise.

The 49ers players with the best-selling red throwbacks are tight end George Kittle, linebacker Fred Warner, defensive end Nick Bosa, and wide receiver Deebo Samuel, in that order.

Jerseys for other current players like quarterbacks Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance, wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, and former players like Jerry Rice and Steve Young were made available but didn't break into the top four.

The 49ers will debut the new jerseys in their first home game—a Week 3 matchup against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football.

Also of note for fans returning to Levi's Stadium this season: The 49ers will enforce the mask mandate for indoor areas of the venue, per team president Al Guido. It will not be required for fans in outdoor areas or while tailgating.

The offensive line for the San Francisco 49ers hasn't been a huge focus for the team since Kyle Shanahan arrived as the head coach in 2017. In fact, the team has only drafted two offensive lineman within the first four rounds of the draft over the past five years: RT Mike McGlinchey in 2018 and G Aaron Banks this year in the second round. However, the team has made significant strides in other moves to improve the offensive line, trading a third and a fifth round pick for star LT Trent Williams during last year's draft before signing him to an extension this offseason, and picking up Alex Mack as the starting center this offseason as well. With Shanahan's run/play-action oriented offense, a strong offensive line is necessary to work both the edges
