1952 VFL Grand Final Preview from the Age

Posted: November 3, 2010 in AFL, Collingwood

Here’s a preview of the 1952 Grand Final through the pencil of Age cartoonist and Cats supporter Sam Wells.

These cartoons were available from the Age for buy back in the 50s & 60s and I wonder if anyone actually did buy them? I also wonder whether the Age still has the originals of these in their archives?

I love the look of that Cat and think that the caricatures of Lou Richards, Jack Hamilton and Bob Rose look pretty good too. I wonder why these did not become as popular as WEG’s Grand Final posters?


By the way the Collingwood Fighting Spirit did not allow the Magpies to win the match, sadly.
