Tiger #754 and winger in the 1983 team, Mark McDonald said his original Grand Final jersey still holds a special place in his heart.

“It was the first A-Grade grand final I played in, and it was an incredible experience to play in that atmosphere against Redcliffe at Lang Park. 

1982 was my first year in first grade. So I got to play with legends who were on their way out in their careers as well as some up and coming young players. That was what was special about 1982.

It is great to see these old jerseys rehashed and brought back so today’s supporters can get a chance to wear them.”

Pre-sale for these jerseys is now open, closing at midnight Sunday 13 August 2023.
