ESSENDON MENS LONG SLEEVE JUMPER 1985 HERITAGE COLLECTION
The Vintage Football Jumper Company, in conjunction with Woolmark and the Essendon Football Club, is proud to release a series of retrospective vintage jumpers 'The Heritage Collection'.
Essendon's back-to-back premierships of 1984-85 are being celebrated with a release of a classic reproduction Bombers woollen jumper as worn by stars Simon Madden, Tim Watson, skipper Terry Daniher, the mercurial Paul Vander Haar, super-cool centreman Leon Baker, intimidating centre half-forward Roger Merrett, relentless Paul Weston and a youthful Paul Salmon . In 1984, Essendon famously turned around a 23-point three-quarter-time deficit with a nine-goal last term in 1984 to win their first premiership since 1965, breaking a 19-year drought. The following year, a by-now dominant team delivered again in emphatic fashion by 78 points, once again over arch enemy Hawthorn.
This rare jumper features the authentic Nubrik sponsor woven patch and VFL patch as worn in period and the merino wool in this Guernsey was grown by sheep grazing the Australian landscape, cared for by Australian farmers, and shorn and manufactured here in Australia. The jumper features a traditional collar design with woven VFL and sponsor logos on the chest and is a must-have for any Bombers diehard.
