The Blueseum is currently seeking an image for all Carlton senior players to complete our historical collection. If you're a collector, or a relative, please help us find an image of every Blue there's been. In fact, we are in the process of setting up an 'Image Gallery' for each player so please add missing heads in if possible.
This is not just restricted to senior players either, if you played reserves, or U19s, were a trainer, doctor or volunteer for the club we want your story and your picture.
If you have any images please contact us at or upload directly via his Image Gallery.

In years to come, Carlton families will tell their children about the euphoria that swept Princes Park on October 11, 2007 - the day that former West Coast champion Chris Judd ended weeks of speculation by joining the Navy Blues. Widely regarded as the greatest AFL player of the first decade of the 21st century, his recruitment was a triumph for the Carlton Football Club, and came after some of the most traumatic years in the club’s history.
Judd had created a media frenzy when he told West Coast that he intended returning to his home state of Victoria after the Eagles ended 2007 with a Semi Final loss to Collingwood. That news sparked a scramble for his signature among half a dozen clubs, but Carlton was always his most likely destination, given that the Blues were best-placed to provide the Eagles with a viable trade offer.
A big, (189 cm) brilliant, ball-winning midfielder, Judd had originally been drafted by West Coast at pick 3 (priority selection) in the 2001 National AFL Draft. In 134 games over six seasons with the Eagles, he had collected just about every possible honour, including the 2004 Brownlow Medal, the 2006 Norm Smith Medal (when captain of the Premiership team) and All Australian in 2004 and 2006. He had kicked 138 career goals, and had led West Coast as captain for two seasons.
Sometimes within the Blueseum we see stunning pictures from the past, that make you think.... Don't you wish you were there? This shot of a crowd in 1907, over 100 years ago, surely gets the historical juices flowing....
