I've still got two Fitzroy FC cans of beer. Had a bottle of Port too but it went under at a dinner party a few years back. Kept the label though.

I'm bored, so I present to you my collection from over the years. The back 3 all have the premiership team signatures from that year on them, and are retired from wear. I bought the '09 one as a protest a year or two after the paddlepop was introduced - I forget what year now. Latest edition is from this morning, in the lower right corner.

On reflection now I'm fairly sure I have a kids sized '97 jumper in one of those vacuum storage bags upstairs too. I used to wear it to footy training as a kid.

I’ve got a Simon Black signed betting slip – in the preseason of 2002 I put $5 that Blacky would win the Brownlow, I think it paid around 45-1 (or similar). He used to get coffee near where I worked so I got him to sign the slip a week before the first round.
Took some convincing to get the lady in the betting shop to let me keep the slip after I cashed in.
Now framed and has pride of place on the wall.

As a 19 year old, I have begun collecting memorabilia since I turned 18 (about 22 months ago) and have picked up some very nice items along my short journey.

That is awesome... you are right, the best bits of memorabilia come when you least expect them.
Very random reply and on a Lions board.
But reading this I can vouch for this after a recent eagles purchase.

Very rare do we get eagles gear now without the whole mob seeing it.
But being first in was a good feeling and been a while since I had that feelin.

Have just added the following to my collection:

Beau McDonald player issued clash jumper from around 2005-06 - $75 from Ebay.



Was shattered to miss out on the recent Lions' auctions involved Merrett and McGrath's indigenous jumpers - someone picked up Ash's for $170 - very jealous!

Still my favorite clash jumper, & one that at least half a dozen fans wear to home games. Had a beer or 3 with a couple of good blokes cos of it.:thumbsu:

I've got a pair of boots signed by Jonathan Brown - We got it when we bought our car in NSW. My parents spoke to the car guy, and I was of course in QLD at the time, so dad told him I am a massive fan of the Lions. He happened to be Jonathan Brown's fiancee's father. My parents left our details and one day I was home alone in the holidays and a package arrived, wadyaknow! I was so happy!

Today I got my old Lions guernsey signed by Daniel Rich and Josh Drummond! Hoping to get some more signatures for the guernsey then put it in a frame.

What memorabilia have you obtained over the years?

I have an old Brisbane Bears jumper (the one with all the B's and VFL logo - no sponsors logo) which I had signed by Vossy, Aker and Black when they did a "three kings tour" of Perth. Brad Hardie has also signed it.

Not sure that it warrants it's own thread, but I wanted to post that I am very happy to have acquired $72 on eBay for my match-worn, signed, debut season Patrick Karnezis guernsey.

It was a paddle-pop too :cry:
