Grand Final VFA Recorders

I have had the State Library Victoria scan all the Grand final recorders they have (basically between 1960-1995). I have permission from AFL Victoria who possibly took over wnership so I'm not violating any copyright. The idea is to make them available to people for research etc and ensure they are preserved.

Does anyone have a collection of GF recorders so they can photocopied then converted to pdf (missing a few years from late 80s etc...)

Was interesting to note the AFL's publication manager Michael Lovett worked for the VFA. Strange how he never mentioned this to me when I was helping him update player records for the HOF.

anyway if anyone can help send me a message.... Im pretty sure you would be interested to access my collection in return.

Given he now works for the AFL he may be tring to hide his past

you would be shocked at how many people work for AFL that worked in the old VFA Compition

They hide it well.... as some of them even asked me for VFA stats when they were better resourced to get them themselves.

It's funny how people's views change as their employers change.

If I can get the above. I can make a complete sequence of 1970-1995 availiable to anyone for research.

Word is VFL has a historian so their archives will be closed regarding VFA material.

James, went through all my records today while watching the cricket, I have 89, 90, 91 & 92 for you. I can copy them at work for you this week. Please let me know on here or via PM where you would like me to send them. Cheers.

Thanks Wally from Will...received 90-91 in mail.
I remember Stuart Nicol (cover 1990) well. He played in a premiership for Woodville-West Torrens in 1993 premiership (He kept former Crows player Romano Negri out of our team that day). Nice bloke and always good for a chat with supporters.

It is amazing that Barry Round played in a GF at age 40 - those days are long gone.

I should be able to scan then in the new year to add to the sequence.
