Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Genuine fans take the best team moments with the less than great, and know that the games that are best forgotten make the good moments truly shine. This monumental book of the San Francisco 49ers documents all the best moments and personalities in the history of the team, but also unmasks the regrettably awful and the unflinchingly ugly. In entertaining—and unsparing—fashion, this book sparkles with 49ers highlights and lowlights, from wonderful and wacky memories to the famous and infamous. Such moments include “the Catch” and the magic of Super Bowl XXIX, as well as the joke Gale Sayers made of the 49ers defense one muddy day in 1965 and the 1972 playoff loss to Dallas. Whether providing fond memories, goose bumps, or laughs, this portrait of the team is sure to appeal to the fan who has been through it all.
