Tony Lockett

Lockett was recruited from Ballarat playing his first game for Saint Kilda in 1983. He has proved himself to one of the greatest Full Forwards ever having played 278 games and kicked 1357 goals and is the greatest goal scorer of all time. He has won the Coleman Medal in 1987, 1991, 1996 and 1998. He has made the All Australian side in 1991, 1992, 1995, 1996 and 1998. Lockett won a Brownlow Medal in 1987 being equal first with John Platten of Hawthorn. He was Saint Kilda's Best and Fairest in 1987 and 1991 and Sydney's Best and Fairest in 1995.

Tony Lockett was chosen by the Sydney Football Club as its star on the Sydney Centenary Maximum Card and Postcard. The maximum card is displayed below. The postcard is essentially the same except that the background is brighter and there is no postmark. A cover with the outline of the postcard was also released.

1996 AFL Centenary Maximum Card

On the 6th June 1999 against Collingwood, Lockett became the highest goal scorer of all time when he kicked a wobbly goal with a kick he latter described as "terrible". The feat was commemorated by the release of a cover by Havilah enterprises.

Retirement Tony Lockett

"Plugger" was used in the Paralympics Torch Relay. This was commemorated by Alpha Covers with a First Day Cover on the 18th October 2000 of the Paralympic Stamp Issue.

To everyone's surprise "Plugger" has made a comeback for the 2002 Season. He only kicked a further three goal and was forced to retire mid season with lack of form and injury, First Class Collectables released a cover with the  Melbourne02 AFL Postmark.
