The club only managed finals appearances in 1952, 1957 and 1959. In both 1952 and 1957 the club reached the Semi Finals, but after losing in the first week was knocked out of the finals race. In 1959, the club finished in second place on the ladder, earning a double chance. A loss ensued against eventual premiers Melbourne in our Semi Final, and another narrow loss to Essendon a week later ended the Blues season.
Premierships: This remains the last decade in which Carlton would not win a Premiership (although the first decade of the 21st century is during to an end!)
