I'm not sure if there would be many photos floating around, but Carlton played a scratch match against a team made up of Richmond, Melbourne and Essendon players today.

The Rich/Melb/Ess side was just wearing Melbourne's royal jumper, so nothing too unusual like 4 jumpers on the field at once.
Although both sides wore white shorts for some reason:

Yeah I didn't expect there to be four different guernseys out on the field 😂 More so the different Guernsey/shorts combos.

What the fu** is the context to this?
I believe this may have been the launch of Virgin Credit Cards (which became the Current Westpac Ingnite card) back in the early 2000s.
The gimmick was that you could pick the colour of your card from a choice of about five or six colours.
Branson has a girl painted in each of the colour options with him when he was out promoting the card.
Black was one of the colour options.

Rampe with the Franklin (baseball) batting glove. Weird seeing another sport league’s logo featured

I played local footy with a dude that used a Franklin baseball glove, it had absolutely no grip on it and as a result if he didn't take it on the chest, it went straight through. But when he went into the ruck he was punching some serious distance at ball ups.

They're sticky as hell swinging a bat! You know, using them for what they're for ;)

It is virtually impossible to find a football glove though. Coming back from a thumb injury I was looking at getting one. Cannot find the old Franklin footy gloves anywhere
