My Mum got me the alt jumper in 1996 after bashing away at it on lay by. Still fits.

How good are Mums?
I had a '96 Hypertech away jumper stolen out of the back of my car when I lived in Flemington. I still mourn that thing to this day, finding another one is pretty much impossible.

Just had a look through my 'North drawer' and found a jersey with the late 90s Kangaroo design with gold trim. It's recent, as it's got Mazda as the sponsor.

What is this and why was it made?

Also. Hypertec. Where they are at?

I have a copy of the "North Story" signed by the 1996 premiership team. It was a special commemorative edition or something. It also has my name listed in the back (along with many others). I think I was in the "Premiers Club" membership category, and everyone who had that membership got their name printed in the book. Pretty much guaranteed I had to buy it!

Also have a personalised signed photo from Byron Pickett......which I value more than the book actually.

I also have scrapbooks with very old North Melbourne articles in them. I used to cut out articles and photos from the newspapers back in those days! That was when newspapers actually reported ‘news’ and they weren’t full of rubbish written by ‘journalists’ who actually think we care about their opinions.

Had a 1996 grand final gold embossed Sherrin signed by the whole team and in a box frame. Gave that away. Had Daniel Wells' indigenous design hand painted boots signed and in a box frame. Gave those away too.

I have an NZI Insurance North footy that I had signed by my favourite players. Unfortunately, it was stored in my parent's basement house for 20 odd years, it became deflated and the leather has no hardened in place in a crushed position. Somewhere I also have a footy of me holding the 1996 cup

Couple more from my home office . Signed framed Archer jumper and a Ross Faulkner blue and white footy from the mid seventies bought at the North Auction. Was smart enough not to kick it as a kid and some great signatures on it. Took it to Ross Faulkner’s a few years ago and they put a new bladder in it.

I have a can of Victorian League Lager. In blue & white colours, the club emblem and our win/loss numbers against each Victorian team on the can. There was no AFL in those days.About 40 years old. It’s Coopers so I can’t drink it.
