Item Description

The Fields of Gold Wall is a celebration of our 2013 journey for the Premiership Cup. Only pictures from winning games were placed on the wall that is located on the players level of our Waverley Park facility. It was considered a great honour amongst the players to have your photo placed on display. The players and coaches nominated post each victory which photo would go on the wall. The image would be either of a player who made a great contribution to our win or a memorable act during a game which inspired teammates and fans alike.  We fronted up to a very confident Collingwood team for a Friday night block buster at the MCG. Sam Mitchell was the target for many Collingwood players. It seemed a tactic of theirs to knock, bump, push, hit, shove Mitch as much as they could. On top of this he was tagged by Macaffer. Despite all this Sam played a great team game and also finished with 24 hard fought possessions. This picture depicts the spirit he played with all game. It was an incredibly mentally tough performance on his behalf. The best thing is we won by 35 points.  Item is made from corflute material, is 600mm wide x 500mm long and is personally signed by Sam Mitchell.   These are rare pieces of Hawthorn memorabilia personally signed by players that would be a magnificent treasure for any serious Hawthorn supporter.  Grab your favourite piece of our victorious 2013 season and display it proudly at your home.
