This years Sir Doug Nicholls Round guernseys, which will be worn in both our Rd 10 away match versus Sydney and our Rd 11 home match versus Fremantle recognise the significant contribution Indigenous players have brought to our great game.
The artwork that features on the 2019 Indigenous guernsey was created by artist Lea-Anne Miller, Travis Varcoe’s sister-in-law. The design was influenced by the support Varcoe received after the passing of his sister Maggie in 2018 from an on-field football incident.
The inner circle represents the players, united as one entity. The dots around the players represent the families, staff and those connected and supporting the team day to day. Much the same as a traditional camp, the outer circle and dots represent people coming together from different players within the Collingwood community, including our fans and supporters.
This piece represents the rich community that provides unwavering support when one of our own is faced with hardship and a time of need.
This year we will be wearing our Sir Doug Nicholls Round guernseys in two games – Rd 10 v Sydney and Rd 11 v Fremantle.
This means if the player takes to the field in either match the guernsey available will be the authentic signed match worn guernsey.
(The players are issued with 2 guernseys, these guernseys will be used for both matches. One will then be available for auction, the other to be retained by the player.)
The guernseys belonging to players not named in either match will also be available as signed player issued guernseys.
All guernsey’s will be personally signed and come with an official AFLPA Certificate of Authenticity to protect your investment.
The auction will end Sunday 9/06/19. 8 Days after the 2nd match.
Auction items will begin to be dispatched or be available for pick up from the Holden Centre approximately 7-10 days after the completion of the auction. This is due to the player signing session, packing and AFLPA authentication process. Please allow a further 3-4 days for Australia Post service.
Successful bidders will be notified by email once items are being dispatched or ready for collection
