Often, they belong to a team that no longer exists, or has been amalgamated ,into another team .
Avid fans and collectors , will seek out and secure football jumpers,Â from this era.
Many collected jumpers are encased under glass , in frames , others are worn with pride , to the game .
Fond memories , of a bygone , gentler era , are embedded deep into these nostalgic jumpers.
The period during which they were worn,Â evokes poignant memories of a simpler , spectator sport . Remember that lair on the field , Warwick Capper , in his very short shorts playing for the Brissy Bears?
Paul Roos , Sydney Swans incumbent coach , Captained and performed heroic feats proudly attired in his Fitzroy Lions jumper .
Memories , individual , irreplacable , and timeless, tied up with the fans reverie and nostalgia for a bygone era. All foster a love for AFL football .
