It has been a disappointing season being a San Francisco 49er fan, with all the off season departures, the hiring of an inexperienced and over-matched coaching staff and all the chaos surrounding Colin Kaepernick there has been plenty of news (and not of the good kind) about the 49ers over the past few months.
Despite the down times, I am a 49er fan and always will be. I will suffer through the bad times as I have in the past with hopes of a brighter future. It helps to have 5 Super Bowl Championships to reflect on.
Just before they won a game last weekend I found myself reminiscing about the good old days and outbid someone on Sportlots for this great looking card:
These card purchases don't fully make up for the pain of this current season but they help get me through it. If things don't improve (and I don't expect they will this year) some more retail therapy may be in order.
