    Well spotted.
    Actually the Club needs to own it and then put in on long-term loan in the SCG museum. Rotten time for the medal to become available. In normal times the Club or a donor on behalf of the Club might have bought it.

    Sydney Swans should definitely own this.

    Bob Deas was a smallish forward (180 cm) who kicked 29 goals in his debut season and 26 the following year. He shifted back to defence later on in his career.

    Swans were minor premiers in 1909 and went on to win their first premiership. Beat Carlton in the Grand Final by two points after losing to them twice during home and away games.
