1981 Ardmona Big League Claremont Carton and Claremont WAFL Cards
Issued in 1981, these cards could only be obtained by collecting labels from Ardmona cans and sending them in, along with a small fee. In exchange, you received a dark blue box with your chosen team’s logo on it. Inside, were 33 cards – two that gave a brief history of the club and 31 cards featuring players and the coach. These were also issued for the VFL clubs, but the WAFL versions are much more difficult to find.
