CHAMPIONS OF COLLINGWOOD
Over the years, Collingwood Football Club has produced some of the most feted names in football history.
Legends of bygone eras like Lee, the Coventrys, the Colliers and Bobby Rose, through to more recent heroes such as McKenna, Daicos, the Shaws, Millane, Brown, Buckley, Swan and so many more. So what better way to commemorate the club's 125th anniversary than with a magnificent, lavishly illustrated book celebrating the careers of the 125 greatest players to have pulled on the black-and-white jumper?
Champions of Collingwood, by club historian Michael Roberts and the Herald Sun's Glenn McFarlane, tells the stories of all 125 players, reflecting on not just what made them great footballers but also why we, as fans, loved them so much. The book is 464 pages long and includes many never-before-seen photos from the club's archives and personal collections. It is a magnificent, high quality, hardback publication that every Magpie supporter will be proud to own.
Book release information
Champions of Collingwood will be released in the week leading up to our anniversary weekend, May 6-7, and there will be signings and functions around its launch. Special edition books will be available through the club for pre-order or sold at the Holden Centre and MCG merchandise outlets.
