The black outline in the "SF" version was first used starting in 1989.
For 1996, a gold outline was added while the red was changed to a slightly darker shade.
For 2009, the 49ers reverted to a look closer to their glory years of the 1980s, including uniforms that were a slightly updated version while the shade of red reverted to scarlet.
