Supporter artefact Wednesday - signed Paul Trimboli frame

One of our readers, Arthur - who sent us this great photo - sent us another photo a few weeks ago, which we haven't been able to show off until now because of both more topical entries, as well as our continuing cup run which we are all happy with I'm sure.

Arthur's brother Nick apparently bought signed, framed and still mulleted Paul Trimboli photo many years ago from a store called 'Superstars and Legends' in Highpoint (which apparently still exists, just not there). Now, that takes me back, not for the existence of that particular store, but just to that pre-eBay era of when sports memorabilia and novelty bloke stuff stores like What's New seemed to have a presence in every suburban shopping centre (and which also apparently still exists, albeit in places I'm unlikely to ever come into contact with).

Trimmers haircut aside, it's also always confuzzled me as to why 'South' becomes 'Sth', in situations when there's obviously room to fit the entire word in. Anyway, thanks to Arthur again for sending us material to share - if you'd like to do the same, please, don't hesitate to contact me. More cup action next week, so the artefacts take another break, which is irritating because I have some really good stuff to show.

While I like people commenting on the blog, it would be useful if different posters could at least leave some sort of nickname to make it easier to sort through all the different 'anonymous' posters. If your post doesn't get approved straight away, it's probably because I haven't seen it yet. Lastly, just because I approve a comment for publication does not mean that I endorse its content.
