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.

Matthew Hogg was a right-footed tagger who the Blues picked up from Footscray via Pick 18 in the 1991 National Draft. Hogg had already played 59 games with the Bulldogs before coming over to Carlton, including making the best players for the Dogs against Carlton in Round 1, 1989, but the form of other players at the Kennel kept him fighting for a spot. Hogg was a tenacious and tight player, more famous for restricting the games of others but a key part of the Parkin coached midfields of the mid 1990's. Matthew Hogg had previously played with Essendon U/19's after being recruited from East Keilor.
Hogg, who wore the number 33, would play 17 games in 1992, 18 games in 1993 and 24 in 1994, including our straight set losses in the 1994 year to Melbourne and Geelong, before injury restricted him in 1995. But this was not to prevent him from taking his place in the 1995 Grand Final. Hogg would play the last four games of the year, from Round 22 onwards, and was preferred as part of the Grand Final team, notionally over South Australian Troy Bond who subsequently left the Club. Hogg would pick up 13 possessions for the game.
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....
