I've also been attending games with the same scarf I bought around 30 years ago. Massive sentimental value as I wore it through the 90's era. Gets washed only after the last game of the season.
Have a lace up guernsey I (my mum) bought in mid 80's and the commemorative 1996 premiership bottle of port which I'm too scared to open and drink now.
A mate also gave me an cotton jumper from the 80's worn by Schimma.

I have the same bottle of port which is signed by Carey. Unfortunately after a big night on the turps I got home and finished that port off... Still got the bottle

Well I have;
A signed home 90s jumper yet to be returned and currently in progress.........

Wayne Carey as a wooden Kangaroo 18 on the back of a Harley I got as a kid (about 1995 we guess). Love it! Wayne has lost an ear along the journey of moving unfortunately.

A team of the century drink mat.

A million caps of which I only wear a few.

North beer glasses which I use regularly as the old fashioned handle type with good weight.

And the rest..........

Bit of a change of pace amongst all the fantastic memorabilia, but mine is just a pretty new training top - from the first year of North’s AFLW team, signed at training by Emma K, Kashy and Mo Hope. The players were all so nice, there were so many excited girls and parents there, it’s a lovely memory, and I was also beside myself to finally go into the Roo Shop and buy women’s footy gear.

My special older possession is a 1999 long sleeved jumper, with #35 on the back (ironed on very hurriedly in my excitement at John Longmire being selected for the GF), and signed some time later by the Horse.

Nice thread, Choppy, and I really hope you get your treasures back asap.

Thanks Hearts to hearts.

This sounds strange but wasn't until I moved a month later I realised it (and others) had been taken as was in spare room, so I just assumed still there.....until they clearly weren't.

Stripped the place of all my valuables and hidden them at her parents when i was at work! Very low act imo!

Anyway sorry all on personal front so move on!

I also had a 90s Guernsey with the Kangaroo on front.

That I can't blame anyone as I literally have no idea where it went.

I loved it too as used to deliberately piss my mates off as I wore it out (club days) and they were embarassed etc.....haha

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.
Feel free to enjoy mine!
Still fits but looks like it’s sprayed on!
ps, I bought it new from a sports shop!

Was at Tottenham v Wednesday circa 1995 got yacking to a now mate. He was studying to be a doctor and was keen to get to Sydney for some course thing or other in Sports Medicine. I laughed at him and told him to go to Melbourne, obviously being the sporting capital of the world, and he could bunk down at some friends of mine. A few weeks later I bumped into him again at Stamford Bridge and he told me he was going to Melbourne. Very long story short, he got onboard with the mighty NMFC and snagged himself a long sleeved guernsey while he was out here and was proud as punch. I had met this lovely Irish nurse and he had simultaneously met her not quite as lovely mate :-D who became quite attached to my new found best mate. He would bloody wear this thing going out in London to try to piss her off, funny as f@ck. And yes, they did get married!!! hahahahahahahahahaha

Lindsay Thomas her favourite after club school visits in Hobart a few years back.
