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.

Past Player of the Week - As Blues finish up in 2016
Michael Jamison was recruited by the Blues with the club’s second selection (number 17 overall) in the December 2006 Rookie Draft, on the recommendation of then Carlton assistant coach Gavin Crosisca. A tall, slimly-built defender from North Ballarat, Jamison had spent the previous two seasons in the VFL with the Roosters, after representing the North Ballarat Rebels in the Under-18 TAC Cup in 2004.
At that time, Carlton was languishing at a new low point in the club’s history, having suffered the ignominy of a third wooden spoon in five seasons. In typical fashion, the Blues responded to failure by shaking out the club from top to bottom, and senior coach Denis Pagan was the first casualty. In late July 2006, Pagan was succeeded by his assistant; former club captain Brett Ratten. Richard Pratt was installed as Club President in December, before Greg Swann crossed from Collingwood as CEO.
Jamison meanwhile, was showing consistently good form as a central defender in the VFL with the Northern Bullants. Very good overhead, quick for his size and calm under pressure, he was making strong claims for a place on Carlton’s senior list before club legend Anthony Koutoufides was forced into retirement by a chronic hip injury. ‘Jamo’ stood out as a logical replacement, so he became Carlton’s Nominated Rookie and first in line for a senior call-up.
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 the Grand Final in 1906, over 100 years ago, surely gets the historical juices flowing....
