Black and yellow teddy bear featuring a Richmond Football Club 'Tigers' cloth label adhered to its chest. It is possible that this bear was adapted by its Richmond supporting owners and there is no manufacturer's label. Footy supporters have always found creative ways to demonstrate their team allegiances. Such bears, whether manufactured or dressed in gear knitted by mothers for young barrackers, were carried to and from footy grounds all over Melbourne.
