Here is my collections of VFA Jumpers which appear on another site:
They are great Wizardwaffle. Any chance you could post them all here? Also welcome to the site!

NorthPort, I have included them in the first post on this thread.
Play to win
Always Box Hill Hawks
Added some previously left out VFA teams to the collection. These were added above.
You have done a marvellous job with these jumpers... Clubs they havent been mentioned for many years.
Im pretty sure Frankston spent a season with a teal coloured jumper. It was pretty ordinary, and they returned to their traditional colours the next season.
West Melbourne, Melbourne City, Essendown town and Essendon Association are other old VFA teams from long ago that could be added. Melbourne City was winless in the few seasons that they were in the VFA. I'll try to locate the jumpers that these teams wore.

The club was formed as Essendon Town in 1900 and joined the VFA that year. Essendon already had a team which competed in the Victorian Football League but many locals protested that they were based at East Melbourne instead of Essendon. The Essendon Town Football Club came about as a result, a side which would play their home games in the district.
A winless season in 1903 meant that they took home their first wooden spoon and in 1905 the club officially changed their name to Essendon Association.
Their most successful period came between 1908 and 1914 when they competed in the finals each year and won back to back premierships in 1911 and 1912. Interestingly, these were the same two years which the VFL's Essendon were premiers. In the 1912 premiership season, Essendon Association's full-forward Dave McNamara became the first VFA footballer to kick over 100 goals in a season.
When the VFL team relocated to Essendon Recreation Reserve in 1922, the Dreadnoughts were forced to merge with North Melbourne.
Formed 1900; merged with North Melbourne 1922
Home Ground Essendon Recreation Ground (First played Windy Hill before Essendon as they were using EMCG
Historical Affiliations VFA 1900-1921

The Sandringham ones are missing a jumper in the 1950s that had a large circular Zebra head monogram on the front on the side.
Sandy will be having a new clash jumper this year...getting rid of that horrible light blue one they have used in recent years.
Sandy. The most successful club in the past 30 years
