In 2012, reader Steve Speicher DIY’d himself an Eli Manning shirsey, which he wore while watching the Giants defeat the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI. Since then, his Super Bowl DIY project has become an annual tradition. Here are some of the designs he’s made along the way:
As for this year, Steve wrote to me this morning to say:
With your looming retirement from Uni Watch coming up, and with your favorite team making it back to the Super Bowl, I figured I had to pick the 49ers for this year’s jerseys. Plus, I’d already made three KC jerseys over the years, so, any more would be maybe too many. I decided to go with the current 49ers white jersey, with No. 19 for Deebo Samuel, for my wife, Anne, and the current red throwback with No. 54 for Fred Warner, for myself.
Here are the iron-on components followed by the finished products:
Love it! Thanks so much for making this an annual Uni Watch tradition, Steve. Gladdens my heart even though (or maybe especially because) the Niners lost last night.
