Brief Description
Melbourne Football Club Indigenous guernsey worn by Neville Jetta during the 2017 Indigenous round, 27 May 2017 and designed by Wurundjeri artist, Mandy Nicholson. The guernsey is in the traditional Melbourne colours featuring traditional Indigenous designs and symbols including the 'wangim' (boomerang) in flight, embedded in the Yarra River, or 'Birrarung', reflecting the connection to the Traditional Custodians of Melbourne, the Wurundjeri people.

The names of every Indigenous player to have represented the Melbourne Football Club are listed on each side panel. The back of the guernsey features a large white number 50 and the iSelect sponsor logo, with the designs paying respect to William Barak by representing the carved designs from one of his original shields.
