The Greatest Team of All - Treasures from the Bob Gartland Collection

Geelong Gallery joins the wider community in celebrating the 160th anniversary of the Club’s formation in 1859, exhibiting a selection of extraordinary, treasured objects and images from the collection of Bob Gartland that tell the stories of the Geelong Football Club.

Bob Gartland is a life-long supporter of the Geelong Cats and a passionate historian of the Club, and of the lives and careers of its players. Over several decades, Gartland has collected tens of thousands of items of national importance.

This exhibition provides an account of the club through a history of photography, graphic design, and uniform design across a century. Bob Gartland has released from his collection for the first time precious 19th and early 20th century original photographs, film and sound recordings, and players’ garments. 

These treasures present a rich timeline of the club in an exhibition that is a truly immersive experience of the mighty blue and white from 1859 to now.
