In 5..4..3..2..1

49ers are officially changing unis next season

Meanwhile, the gold on the tractor and the gold on the trailer look like two completely different hues...

The "gold" on the tractor almost looks like the flat "beige" or "tan" of their crappy throwback pants, while the trailor looks like the shiny gold of their more recent gear.

I really hope this doesn't imply that they're going to have the shiny metallic gold on their helmets, and revert back to the crappy pants.

Easy there, sport. The Rams have the same thing going on.

By the way, does it strike anybody else as really, really sad that we're getting NFL logo news from 1:80 scale tractor trailer collectibles?

There's something very humorous to me about the fact that all this new logo buzz is coming from these ridiculous little toy semi trucks

As funny and/or stupid as it may seem, the trucks are official NFL merchandise, so the information we're getting is legit.

Also, the red on the 49ers truck kinda looks pink to me. Almost like the Falcons' red, in a way.

I always thought the Niners' red looked pink, especially in Madden, and their official pantone or whatever has a lot of violet. But that red on the truck does look less crimson, similar to the 80's look. But it's different when you see the real McCoy on the field.

This is what it might look like on 49erswebzone.com the owner likes to have an brighter gold to the unis and the SF oval logos could be on the stripes. They are also discussions that the players have a little input with it that they are debating whether to go with the red face mask or red facemask.

The oval on the stripes is the dumbest thing ever. It's the only thing IMO keeping the current set from being 99% perfect. The other 1% comes from trying to cram three stripes onto a template that doesn't have sleeves.

Agreed, although other than the sleeves I love the uniform on the right.

Isn't that how the new Sabres logo was released? Or was that a hoax of sorts?

No, I think you're right. Pretty sure it was an NHL Shop leak, some piece of silly merchandise. A toy car?

Keep the modern helmet logo, give it a red facemask, keep the oval off the stripes, and use those color changes and it's the best uniform in the NFL. Period. Hell, even with the oval on it it'd be Top 3, IMO.

No doubt inspired by the Saints' endless quest for matching golds... B)

But wait...the Saints truck DOES match the trailer! (angels singing) They got it right for once.

The logo on the sleeve in the PS job reminded me, did anyone see the NFL Network showing of that '85 Packers-Bears games? The Pack's uni's were terrible, they had the G logo in the jersey stripe, numbers on the pants, and it was back when the helmet logo was hovering right over the earhole. For a uni that was essentially the same as they wear today (and before that of course), it looked pretty bad.

That's because on the middle part of the trailer there is a shadow affect which makes the colors look darker...

The uniform on the right would be perfect if the TV numbers were moved to the shoulders, the striping/sleeve logo was moved up a bit, and the facemasks were coloured red, gold, or white.

Yeah, the University of Northern Colorado used to have gold helmets with white facemasks, and I always thought they looked pretty cool. With the thick white stripe down the middle of the helmet, I think a white a facemask on the 49ers helmet would look fantastic.

I've been thinking about this subject lately, and what I think might be a good compromise between the pro-colored facemask crowd (which includes me), and the pro-gray facemask crowd (about 75% of the people on this board it seems), is if they could develop a coating that closely matched a metallic shell.

This way, maybe the 49ers could have a metallic Gold helmet with a matching metallic Gold mask. Create the "illusion" that the helmet and facemask are all one unit (maybe it's supposed to be that way anyway).

The old San Antonio Riders of the WLAF intended this to happen - a metallic Gold helmet with a matching Gold mask, but the facemask ended up being a orangey-yellow. Sort of like the Redskins. It looked awful.
