Colin Kaepernick jersey sells out immediately



The kneeling protests inspired by Kaepernick are meant to bring attention to police brutality and racial injustice.

Through his continuous commitment, the number 7 jersey has become an iconic symbol for progress and positive change.

Fans and supporters could buy a new commemorative Colin Kaepernick jersey on Thursday-if they were really, really fast.

The jersey's release marked four years since the former San Francisco 49ers star took a knee during the United States national anthem in protest of systemic racism.

Julien's Auctions said Kaepernick signed the 49ers away jersey, which he wore during his National Football League debut against the Philadelphia Eagles on October 2, 2011.

Nike was one of the first major companies to publicly back Kaepernick's social justice activism.

The agency pointed out that higher rates of people of color have been considered essential workers during the outbreak as well. Infectious disease specialist Preeti Malani with the University of MI says the big takeaway from the study is this.

Julien's Auctions said on Thursday that the jersey, which is signed by Kaepernick, was worn by the quarterback on October 2, 2011, when he entered the 49ers' game against the Philadelphia Eagles in the first quarter.

Yesterday, the company revealed pictures of the Icon Jersey 2.0, a re-release of the earlier all-black jersey. Thank you for staying True. In that instance, Kaepernick took to social media about 10 hours later to say they had sold out. The NFL scheduled a workout for Kaepernick a year ago and invited all 32 teams to attend, but the former 49ers quarterback pulled out of the event, citing concerns related to a waiver he was asked to sign beforehand.

Despite now being an unsigned free agent and being blackballed by the NFL, Colin Kaepernick has managed to retain an endorsement deal with Nike.

Following intense protests in response to the murder of George Floyd in May, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell admitted the NFL was wrong not to encourage players to peacefully protest.

The NFL has launched several social justice initiatives since the season kicked off last week, with "It Takes All Of Us" and "End Racism" written in the end zones.
