Four-time Super Bowl champion quarterback, and Bay Area native, Tom Brady, official bid farewell to legendary Candlestick Park on his Facebook page.
The photo is of a four-year-old Brady in a Joe Montana jersey at the iconic NFC title game between the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys, in which Montana and Dwight Clark connected on a game-winning touchdown, now known as "The Catch."
Brady scribes: "What a magical time in my life! Sad to see Candlestick go."
The New England Patriots star quarterback grew up in San Mateo, Calif., and attended Junipero Serra High School.
It is widely known that Brady grew up a 49ers fan.
Crews have already begun the deconstruction of Candlestick Park, which first opened in 1960, and was home to the San Francisco Giants, and more recently, the 49ers.
The 'Stick has a storied past in San Francisco. It was famous for its strong winds that swept in from the bay, swirling into the stadium, creating unpredictable playing conditions for the players and at times, uncomfortable viewing for the fans. The 49ers left Candlestick Park after the 2013 season for a new $1.2 billion stadium in Santa Clara.
