In Search Of Archive

As part of a continuing series on the Blueseum, we ask you our readers and contributors to search your navy blue treasure chests at home to help us find some hidden gems.

As part of a fundraising venture the AFL X-men have been trying to find an autograph of ex-Carlton player Maurie Sankey who was tragically killed in a car accident at the age of just 25.

Amazingly the autograph was found and the story behind it's discovery can be found here: Big Blue Family.

Channel Seven made the unfortunate decision to delete from their archives many games from the 1970's and 80's. This was of course a time of great success for the Blues and as a consequence many great Carlton wins are no longer available to be enjoyed.

We at the Blueseum are asking you to search your old video tapes, whether they are VHS or Betamax to see if we can find some of these lost gems. In general we are looking for anything before 1987 but in particular games such as the 1979 finals excluding the Grand Final, the 1981 second semi final, the 1970 second semi final and the 1986 final versus Sydney.

So please search your old video tapes and if you have this item please contact us via this page. If anything is found we will firstly give a copy of the tapes to the Carlton Football Club and also Channel Seven to restore the lost archive.
