1979 Melville Motors East Fremantle Coasters

Not much is known about the reason for the release of this set, which was appropriately done early in East Fremantle's premiership year of 1979. Printed on thick card in blue print, these coasters are difficult to find today. But they are easier to find than the set which was released later in the year, bearing the word "premiers" on each of the coasters. In this set, captain-coach Brad Smith is still listed under his playing number, rather than as the coach.

1979 Melville Motors East Fremantle "Premiers" Coasters

This set was released after Old Easts won the 1979 premiership and was almost identical to the set issued earlier in the season. The only difference was that these carried the word "Premiers" on them and only those players who played on grand final day made it into the set. As a result, Brad Smith is listed as the coach, rather than as a player, while Ian Thomson also features after joining the club from East Perth and playing in the grand final.

1987 Magic Toyota East Fremantle Coasters

After a hiatus in the production of coaster sets, Magic Toyota brought them back in 1987 when they released a collection of 32 glossy coasters featuring East Fremantle players. Perhaps the most interesting thing about this set is that the photographs were taken at training and many of the players were wearing VFL Jumpers, like Roger Kerr and Brian Peake (Geelong), Mark Amaranti (St Kilda), Colin Lamb (Collingwood), and Colin Waterson, Robert Weber and Chris Waterman (North Melbourne). Several players were wearing Hawthorn jumpers (Ken Judge, Wayne Nannup, Ken Seymour, Shane Ellis, Scott Annandale and Geoff Sims). For some reason, the Peter Kiely coaster is difficult to find, perhaps related to the fact he never played a league game for the club.
