The San Francisco 49ers are coming off their sixth Super Bowl appearance and are once again energizing football fans throughout the Bay Area. In San Francisco 49ers: The Complete Illustrated History, author and longtime sports reporter Matt Maiocco explores the full history of this iconic franchise, in the All-America Football Conference as California’s first major league pro sports team up through the latest Super Bowl glory. Accompanied by tons of photos, Maiocco offers details and insight into the teams, players, and games that have defined the Niners legacy over nearly seven decades. In addition to recounting well-known themes and storylines—the dynasty under Bill Walsh and Joe Montana, rivalries with the Dallas Cowboys and other teams, profiles of star players, analysis of pivotal games—this book presents lesser-known stories and season recaps to provide fans of the Red and Gold with a deeper understanding of their favorite team.

With an unmatched depth of information and wealth of visual material, San Francisco 49ers: The Complete Illustrated History is the ultimate fan souvenir and reference book for the Golden Gate City’s beloved football dynasty.
With five Super Bowl trophies and more than 40 winning seasons, the San Francisco 49ers represent a long tradition of success on the gridiron. From the birth of pro football in California in the 1940s through the dynasty of the 1980s and 1990s and up to the latest Super Bowl journey, the 49ers have boasted countless all-star players and Hall of Famers, played in numerous memorable on-field battles, and kept Bay Area football fans cheering on the red and gold season after season. In these beautifully designed pages, author Matt Maiocco introduces and reintroduces 49ers fans to all the legendary players and every season from the team’s storied history. Illustrated throughout with glorious photos and a rich collection of memorabilia from throughout the eras, this book will bring back fond memories of past heroes and reveal the full story behind this beloved franchise.
