WAFL Collectables

Budgets, Cards, Badges and Jumpers. Anything and everything WAFL.

Books

Over the course of the WAFL's history, there have been plenty of books written by both players and journalists alike. But the numbers pale in comparison to those produced for the VFL. As a result, it's possible to gather most, if not all, of the books about the WAFL into one collection without too much difficulty.

I must thank John Gordon, of Melbourne, who started a list of WAFL publications sometime back. That list was of great assistance in putting together the list below.

If a book title is highlighted in red text, it means I am looking for a copy for my own collection.
