    I posted this on the Footy Jumpers & Graphic Design Forum/What Footy Jumpers Do you own thread hoping to get some information about the two pictured jumpers. A few weeks now and no response. So now I brought the post across to this Forum hoping some of the local Tassie members can help. Original post shown below. So for the long winded post and new thread.
    ________________________________________________________________________________________
    This is one for the Tassie members. I’m trying to obtain some information about these two Tasmanian jumpers. I have googled myself to death and haven’t been able to find much information or images of use for them. Information I received from the seller about the first jumper was that it was issued for use in a Tasmania Under23 game against a South Australian Amateur side in 2008. He didn’t get to use it as he was injured? As can be seen the jumper is made by Kombat and has the VFL logo. It also has the Tru Energy sponsorship logo. As far as I know this sponsorship was only used until the end of the 2007 VFL season not being renewed for 2008. I have found information which suggests this maybe a Tassie Devils jumper that was used during a Heritage type round when they played Sandringham on 7th July, 2007. The logo on the left breast says “Darryl Baldock’s Tassie Greats.” Information suggests these jumpers were available to the public for purchase after the match. Apparently the Devils wore the Tasmania Map jumper during two VFL rounds in 2006 and 2007, not sure if they did during any other season. Can anyone confirm if this is a player issue Devils jumper from 2007 or maybe a replica made for merchandising. If it is a player issue devils jumper could it have been re-used for the under23 game mentioned above. However homework suggests Tassie played WA in Devonport on 01/06/2008 and may have worn jumpers made by Cougar sports. I saw another mention of an Under23 regional squad playing against South Australia on 11/07/2008. Again I can’t confirm or find any exact info.

    The next jumper I have been told by Beargrills16 and others on the TSL Board that this jumper is a TFC Under23 side jumper which played South Australia Amateur League on 11/06/2009. I’m happy with this information but again can’t find any images of it being worn in a game. I was also curious as to why white numbering were used on these jumpers as opposed to the standard gold usually seen on the Tasmania jumper. I’ve also seen white numbering on what appeared to be a 2013 TFC Under23 jumper. Can anyone advise why the white numbers were used and for how long and when they reverted back to the gold. Sorry for the long winded post

    I used to have a Tassie Devils website, and in my materials I came across the Tassie Greats promotion. Each current Devils player was issued with a jumper corresponding to a famous player, and I might have the list buried somewhere. As you say, these matches were played in 2006-07.

    I also recall seeing the U23 jumper. Can't explain the numbering other than to say this isn't the official state jumper - the little logos within the Tassie map on the heart represent the leagues which the team was drawn from, such as the NTFL and the NTFA. So in the same way the Vic country jumper has a big V but not the same colouring, the Tassie U23 jumper has differences to distinguish it from the main one - it's not "TFL", as such. Also, the Devils themselves went to white numbering from 2004, and wore a map version jumper with white numbers and trim from 2007 for a bit...adding white everywhere to the Tassie jumper was in vogue at this time, and even when the team folded the map guernseys were still used in some under age teams...

    I'll have a look for more info. It's a beautiful sight, the Map, by far the greatest thing in Australian football - I'm assuming this one was a tribute to Alistair Lynch. What would it cost for you to part with it...!?!

    The old state jumpers were a sight to behold. I like the old red SA jumper. The big V blue jumper was classic. The green Tassy jumper with the map was fantastic.l didnt like the other state jumpers that much.

    Thanks for the info. I don't know who the players in your photo are but the list I have seen said Adam DERBYSHIRE was issued with number 11 and Jason Ling Number 15?

    You could very well be right. Brodie Moles is on the left and Jason Ling on the right in the photo, but there's nothing to say they are necessarily wearing their assigned jumpers for the match. Derbyshire was a bustling ff in the style of Alistair Lynch, and looking through the 2006 list you can see clear examples where they've matched player types with allocated jumpers (I don't have the 2007 list)...

    I am u sure as to why the armature top has white numbers. I played in that game in 2009 in SA. I could do some digging and try to find out who wore no30!

    They were wearing the gold numbers at the AAFC Under 23 Carnival in 2015, here's one of the shots I took there.

    I will ask around and see what I can find about the changing of the jumper numbers as well as who wore 30.
