A Question About WEG’s Posters

Posted: October 27, 2010 in Misc Thoughts

I have always thought that the tradition of WEG’s Premiership posters began in 1954 when the Bulldogs won their one and only Grand Final… BUT reading the Herald from the Saturday afternoon of the 1953 Grand Final (September 25th) there was a curious little paragraph about hoards of Collingwood fans descending on the Herald vans to get their victory posters with the Magpie on it. I wonder if these posters were drawn by WEG and can be considered the first WEG true WEG posters but are not considered as such because it looks as though they were given away free of charge. I wonder if any of these are still in existence too?
