Candlestick Park. This beloved stadium, this San Francisco icon, has a date with demolition, currently slated for early 2014. With this being said, we would like to honor it as the subject of this week's collection.
The final season of 49er football at The Stick kicks off this Sunday, which means its time to stock up on Candlestick Prayer Candles. The candles did their job last year and would have produced the perfect 49er home record, had someone, who wont be mentioned here, remembered to light theirs that one Sunday in October. As the birth place of the West Coast Offense, Candlestick was not only home the Red and Gold, but also to the SF Giants who played there for 40 years. For the true SF sports fans we have created the ultimate tribute New Era hat, available in both snapback and fitted. Finally, for those of you who just appreciate The Park for its iconic presence, the first landmark to greet you on your return from SFO, we proudly present this silkscreened print and matching T-shirt. For over 50 years, Candlestick has been a part of the Bay Area landscape, Upper Playground would like to pay its respects and acknowledge the true end of an era.
