#Cupdate

Mine arrived broken. RedBubble are replacing it for free. Good times. Looks bloody incredible though Mero, great stuff.

I was surprised at the lack of protective packaging within the box. Thought it could be susceptible to breakages. At least you now have a nice display piece if you can just hide where the handle was.

Couldn't help but notice when they were showing old Garry Lyon highlights on the Front Bar tonight that there was an 80s VFL game between Geelong and Melbourne where both teams were rocking the navy blue shorts. Was this sort of nonsense common back in the day?

Back in the mid 80s club would wear their Home shorts unless they were Away and had the same colour as the Home team.
Melbourne were Royal Blue when this rule came in, and when they switched to Navy in 1987 the VFL never updated their policy.
So Melbourne played against Geelong and Carlton in Navy shorts on occasions.
I remember them wearing White shorts at the WACA one night against West Coast (Royal Blue) and not against Richmond the week after, even though clubs with Black or Navy shorts wore White against each other.

Well, it's good to see that the AFL/VFL have been consistently clueless in this regard for quite a while, gives a nice sense of continuity

Hey Mero, not sure if you've forgotten/didn't realise/been too busy ect. But in the "one off/promo jumpers" folder, you don't have the crows eddie betts guernsey and the geelong 2019 retro round guernsey.

Geelong Retro Round should be there now. Thanks.
I forgot to upload it once it was worn.
Just a couple of minor edits:

The collar is different to the standard home jumper, with a full 'V' shape and panel, and no 'G'

There's a faux-wool effect on the hoops, which (depending on the lighting) can appear as more of cream than white
739768

The back has traditional-style cuffs rather than the standard CO template, and also a number panel separating the faux-wool and standard white
