The Collingwood Football Club has an extensive collection of memorabilia relating to players, fans and the club. This includes records, trophies, personal player memorabilia, important historical artefacts, paper-based ephemera such as letters and menus, cigarette and trade cards, photos, badges, membership tickets, souvenirs and much, much more.
Some of the collection is put on display in the foyer at the Holden Centre, in one of the exhibitions that rotate every year. Other items can be used in temporary displays or around the club. All items are catalogued, photographed and protected when not on display.
We're always looking to add to our collection. Too many wonderful items have been thrown out over the years. If those items come to the Collingwood Archives then they’ll be looked after, insured and hopefully can feature in one of our many displays.
And even if you don't want to donate anything, sometimes it's enough just to know that an item exists, and that we could access it if needed for a display.
