San Francisco 49ers Newspaper Book - Gift Details
Here’s your chance to relive the 49ers’ finest moments with this Los Angeles Times newspaper book, featuring reprints of reports written at the time.
Things get started in November 1947 with a 26-16 victory over the Los Angeles Dons. Thereafter, the book also includes coverage of the team’s mightily impressive 19 NFC West titles, spanning 42 years from 1970 through to 2012 when having progressed to their sixth Super Bowl, they were narrowly beaten by the Baltimore Ravens, 31-34.
And yet along with other standout results, including victories over rivals such as the Rams, it’s the team’s five Super Bowl triumphs that take centre stage throughout the book. Their first, in 1981’s Super Bowl XVI, saw them edge out the Cincinnati Bengals, 26-21, with legendary, Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana taking the MVP award.
Three years later, in 1984, Joe Montana was at it again. Another MVP performance saw his 49ers side secure a rather more comfortable victory, thanks to the 38-16 win over the Miami Dolphins. In 1988, the Bengals were again put to the sword in an even closer contest than the first. The 16-20 victory was made all the more remarkable given the 49er were 16-13 down with only three minutes left on the clock.
One year later, another Montana-inspired performance saw the franchise romp through the Denver Broncos, 55-10. And in 1994, the 49ers won their last Super Bowl to date with a comfortable 26-49 win over the Super Bowl newcomers, the San Diego Chargers.
