San Francisco 49ers Primary Logo 1946 - 1967

The original 49ers logo was a mustached gold miner from the 1849 California Gold Rush, dressed in plaid pants and a red shirt, jumping in midair with his hat falling off, and firing pistols in each hand: one nearly shooting his foot, and the other pistol about the head.
