Have you got Fitzroy v Richmond? It's currently on eBay for $15.

I have the record for every H&A, night/preseason, state and finals game I've ever attended, going back to early 70s. And records from significant Footscray/WB games I didn't attend as well, going back to the 60s.

I didn't get to that Footscray v North 78 night game (I did regularly attend night games though) - unfortunately even if I did, I'd only share photos/scans, as my records aren't for sale.

Good luck with the search though. There are a number of regular record sellers on eBay - have bought from them over the years. Maybe try and message them directly via their current items and ask. One I dealt with many years ago had too many to list, so just told me to send him a list of any I was after, and he'd see what he could do.

I'm guessing night series are harder to get though, as most games at Waverley didn't attract huge crowds so VFL wouldn't have printed big numbers.

Lol I had a big cleanup and de-clutter this week and all my old footy records (bar the 2016 PF and GF) are now in the recycling bin outside on the kerb.

The truck comes early in the morning so if anybody wants them you’d better get over here quick smart!

There's possibly a bit of value there, your average 1970s h&a sells for $10-15, 80s only slightly less, and so on.

Do your heirs realise dogwatch?! 😲😆

I can just imagine the face palms when my will is read out …

“And to my wife and children I bequeath my treasured collection of Football Records”

🤦‍♀️🤦🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

I've planned for that. Doubt the kids are interested in the contents of my footy collection (most of it is significantly older than me), but I've told them how much it's worth, and written descriptions of each item and how to best realise its value.

Unless I come to my senses and cash it in while I'm still around, and spend the proceeds on the good lady and myself! 😀
