The 49ers were the first ever professional team to compete in San Francisco. The team was founded in 1946 and merged over to the NFL in 1949. Since then, The 49ers managed to win 5 Super Bowls and were the fastest team to obtain 5 Championships. Four out of their five Super Bowls came in the 1980's and they have since been referred to as "The Team of the Eighties." With not much happening in the past 20 years for the 49ers, they have very high hopes moving into this upcoming season as they are bringing back a lot of young talent.
This Official 49ers T-Shirt is 1980s-90s authentic and was acquired by Vintage Sports in 2018. This new old stock item was made in the USA and shipped to Europe approximately 35 years ago to be sold at the military Post Exchange in Mannheim, Germany. The Post Exchange is normally located on US military bases throughout the world and meant to provide US products to American troops. After the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989, the US military emphasis began to shift away from Germany to the Balkans. The garrison at Mannheim, once one of the largest in Europe is now mostly a ghost town.
