What better day than today, as the 49ers take on the Packers, to pay tribute to the team’s #1 fan, “Banjo Man,” aka “Super Niner,” aka Stacy Samuels. For the past 30 years, he’s roamed the aisles at every 49ers home game, plucking and cheering for the red and gold. (Not to mention quite a few Warriors, A’s and Giants games.)
Samuels’ signature propeller beanie comes courtesy of his own company, Interstellar Propeller – so if you’re inspired, you can get one yourself. I must admit that I had one as a kid, and I’m not alone – apparently he’s sold more than a million and a half over the years. That’s a man who knows how to accessorize.
Oh… and GO NINERS!
