Hi OJ just me again. Well that didn't take long I googled the Fitzroy-Brisbane Lions Historical Society as you suggested and right there in one of the photos was the poster staring me in the face. It definitely doesn't have any signatures. So thanks so much for your help. Not sure what to do next I guess I will pop it back under the bed for now!!! Thanks again Sue.

Hello Sue. Yes it was a bad weekend for the Demons, a very disappointing performance. I did a bit of "googling" and found the Fitzroy - Brisbane Lions Historical Society. They have a website and a Facebook page. One of them should know the answer. Good luck! Let me know how you go. Regards OJ

Hi OJ. Thanks for the reply and effort you have gone to for me. The poster is framed and the back is brown paper so I can't really see the reverse side of it. We live in country Victoria in the same town as one of the players maybe I could ask him although he may not recall as I'm sure he would have signed thousands of items during his time at Fitzroy. I too am a Melbourne supporter and not a very happy one after Sunday's outcome!!! Cheers and thanks again. Sue.

Hello Sue. As a Melbourne supporter, I remember the game but not the poster. I have asked a couple of other collectors and they don't know of it either. Most of these posters had the signatures printed onto them. If they were individually signed by the players the poster may have "limited edition" or words like "copy 3 of 300" printed on it - maybe on the back of the poster? To get a more precise answer, perhaps you could take the poster to a collectables shop in your local area and have the signatures examined more closely. Regards OJ.

Hi, I'm wondering if you could assist me with a query. I recently acquired a framed souvenir football poster of the Fitzroy football club. This piece of memorabilia was produced in 1979 after Fitzroy defeated Melbourne creating a new VFL record for the highest score in history. I'm presuming there would have been a lot of the posters circulating at this time. It has a photo of every player and the coach along with the scoreboard. The poster I have also has every players signature. I can't seem to find the same poster anywhere online what I'm wondering are the signatures printed or individually signed. They look to authentic to be a print. If you could clarify this for me it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Sue.
