I played Ammos in the 80s
So I've started on the Front and Back versions of each uniform.
I'm not really sure what to do with them though.
SO far I've added them to the club page for the first season.
(Click on any of the clubs for their games in that season, the Front & Back version heads that page)

Thoughts? Feedback?
What about when they've got three jumpers, like Hawthorn have had recently?

Love that you're continually improving the site & presentation Mero - as always, a wonderful resource that just gets better & better.
Ideally you'd have front and back for each team in each game - not sure if you can achieve that: maybe in the longer term? It probably doesn't matter much for these early years of VFL where the jumpers (front & back) would remain pretty consistent throughout the year, so could just put the jumper (front & back) up the top as you suggest.
However in recent decades with the myriad variations it would be handy to see both sides of the jumpers in each game. Perhaps when you click on each jumper front in each game you'd go to a page with the front view enlarged (as currently) & the back view also.

I've done up to 1907.
All games now have the Front and Back view, as well as the Top image for each club for each season.
Only real ones to look for are 1900, 1903 & 1904 when clubs wore either a flag or numbers on the backs.
Next comes two new clubs, Richmond & University, then the introduction of numbers, then Clash uniforms.

Mero, that 2005 variant of the Origin Energy jumper is missing from the Away/Clash section of Footscray



Note the different number font as seen in the second image on this post. It's Impact but just slightly compressed horizontally.


Also, the 2004 version of the jumper (worn in the preseason, with the bulldog logo on the neckbar) was also worn in the 2005 preseason, so the preseason page needs to amended to reflect that



The Azuma version as mentioned at the start of the post was only worn in that one away game vs Geelong in the 2005 regular season.

2004 Preseason jumper details amended.
The 2005 jumper is on the Promotion Jumpers page.
Surely this is the definition of a Promotion, isn't it?
It was used in a game where they were not listed as clashing with the opponent and still wore that jumper, in a time before the AFL regulated that clubs have more than one jumper..

Looking for some assistance on this image from someone with some Photoshop skills.

It appears that some of the players have the FFC monogram on their jumpers.
Frank Curcio, Horrie Dawson and Allan Field are the ones that look most like it.
But they're all in the shadows and it makes it difficult to distinguish.
Making it more difficult, Blue and Maroon appear very similar in B&W images
Is it possible to tinker with the light settings to see if the jumper is the 1939 Blue Yoke design, or the 1941 Blue Shoulders with FFC monogram?

From the naked eye, I swear I see a yoke for A. Gillespie-Jones but he's the only one. And maybe the monogram too.

EDIT: That maybe the collar. The child in the front has it too.

I'll play around with it, but don't know if it will do much. Personally speaking, just from my naked eye but I'm seeing a few with features that lean towards the monogram.

Fancy wearing that guernsey against StKilda? Red top, white shorts? Clubs have improved a little but still not enough with clash jumpers.

West Coast 2008 season, they wore the 2007 alternate away (home away?) against the Bulldogs. You have the man in a 2008 alternate away, which didn't exist. In 2009 they made a navy with HJ front but it would have had SGIO back.
