Sports Card World tribute to


History is Made

On Sunday June 6th 1999, history was made at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Tony “Plugger” Lockett entered the record books as the highest goal scorer in V.F.L./A.F.L. history. When Lockett scored his third goal in the game between Sydney and Collingwood, he notched up his 1300th career goal and eclipsed the 62 year-old record held by Collingwood’s Gordon Coventry. The goal came after the siren sounded to end the first quarter.

Sports Card World recognises this outstanding feat and presents this page as a tribute to one of greatest players to have played Australian Rules Football.
