1989 Hawthorn Premiership Cards & Photo

Our Price: $595.00


Product Description:
This great piece of Australian Football memorabilia commemorates the 1989 VFL Grand Final victory of the Hawthorn Football Club, a game that will go down in history as one of the greatest. The piece consists of a full set of WEG player cards from the Hawks winning side, a plaque of the match statistics and has been framed alongside a signed black and white photograph of Dermott Brereton taken moments after he was hit with a huge shirtfront by Geelong s Mark Yeates.
The Kid limped towards the forward pocket holding his ribs and vomiting, he was in obvious distress. However when a still frail-looking Brereton marked courageously in a pack and goaled, the Hawks were inspired, and began to attack the ball with the intensity of a truly great side.
The last quarter however, was premiership football at it s very best. The physical treatment that the Hawthorn players had been dealt began to take its toll, the Hawthorn juggernaut began to slow dramatically.
The Cats pounced on their opportunity, and with the mercurial Gary Ablett leading the way with a record nine goals for the game they reduced the deficit, and looked set to overtake the Hawks. In the final moments the game was well and truly up for grabs. As hard as Geelong tried to wrench the lead from Hawthorn s vice like grip, in a true staying contest, the Hawks held firm despite pain and exhaustion to score a memorable six-point win.
It was a victory earned with blood and pain, and although the victorious Hawthorn unit looked like the walking wounded after the match, this was one of the great team performances of all time.
