For 43 seasons, the San Francisco 49ers had one address — 602 Jamestown Avenue, San Francisco, California. But with “the Stick’s” run coming to an end, a decision was made to play one final game at the stadium that was home to five Super Bowl trophies and a place we all once loved.

The last game was called, “Legends at Candlestick,” and it featured retired professionals in a game of flag football. An estimated 30,000 fans came out to see one last play and one last touchdown in this revered, and often reviled, stadium. Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Roger Craig, Dwight Clark, Steve Young and many others faced off in a game against a team captained by Dan Marino, former Miami Dolphins quarterback.

As the game went on, Dan Marino’s team gained a lead, but, just like in his glory days, Joe Montana led a furious comeback and completed the game-winning touchdown to five-time Super Bowl-winning owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr., It was the last throw for the last touchdown in Candlestick Park.

The 49ers will continue to add to their storied legacy at Levi’s Stadium, in the upcoming 2014-2015 season, in Santa Clara, California.
