Colin Kaepernick's rookie NFL debut 49ers jersey heads to Julien's Auctions Dec. 4
The white Reebok “7” signed jersey by the former NFL quarterback, who became the face of this generation’s new civil rights movement and an American cultural figure, is estimated to sell at $80,000 - $100,000.



LOS ANGELES, CA.- Julien’s Auctions announced today that Colin Kaepernick’s official San Francisco 49ers rookie debut jersey has been added to the previously announced Icons & Idols: Sports, the world-record breaking auction house to the stars’ highly anticipated sports event, taking place Friday, December 4th, 2020, live in Beverly Hills and online at juliensauctions.com.

The white Reebok “7” signed jersey by the former NFL quarterback, who became the face of this generation’s new civil rights movement and an American cultural figure, is estimated to sell at $80,000 - $100,000. Kaepernick wore this jersey in his NFL debut as a San Francisco 49er on October 2, 2011, when he entered the game in the first quarter for a handoff to Frank Gore for a five-yard run against the Philadelphia Eagles.

In 2016, Kaepernick knelt during the National Anthem to bring attention and awareness to racial inequality in the United States. At the end of the 2016 NFL season, Kaepernick was released by the 49ers, which led to his present-day banishment from the NFL and his legacy as one of the most prominent figures in sports history worldwide.




In 2020, his positions and actions on and off the field has catapulted him to become a central figure whose kneel became a powerful symbol of protest against racial injustice in America. His peaceful non-violent protest garnered worldwide attention and was featured on the October 3, 2016 cover of Time magazine. In 2018, he signed a multi-year deal with Nike and became the face of the sports brand’s 30th anniversary “Just Do It” campaign with appearances in Nike worldwide advertisements that included the quote, “Believe in Something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”

Kaepernick spent six seasons as quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers and was recognized as the most dynamic player in the NFL. He became the starting quarterback midway through the 2012 season, replacing Alex Smith. His 181 rushing yards against the Green Bay Packers in the first game of the 2012 playoffs remains a quarterback single-game NFL record, and he’d go on to lead the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl that same year for the first time since 1994.

This Reebok-brand white jersey with red lettering and detailing features “7“ on front, back and shoulders in red tackle twill with “Kaepernick“ across the back shoulders above the centered “7“. Kaepernick signed his name on the red “7“ on the back in silver Sharpie as well as “2011 Game Worn Rookie Jersey“.

Kaepernick’s jersey joins the previously announced lineup of artifacts from sports legends, Michael Jordan and his historic 1984 signing day rookie NBA official Chicago Bulls game jersey, and Kobe Bryant and his 2004-2005 Reebok brand Los Angeles Lakers alternate jersey and a used Spalding brand Official Game Basketball signed “Kobe Bryant/ 24“.

“Today, Colin Kaepernick, now more than ever, transcends sports like Muhammad Ali and Jackie Robinson and other athletes before him, who used their power and presence in the sports arena to take a stand against injustice,“ said Darren Julien, CEO/President of Julien’s Auctions. “Julien’s Auctions is proud to add this exceptional piece of sports history to our collection of over 500 items from sports icons such as, Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant, whose influence and impact changed the game and our world.“
