Vincent Handley, from Entertainment by Vin released a statement saying Ablett was not selling the items because of financial stress.

“He has chosen to do so freely so that his loyal and longstanding fans can experience these incredible items and own a piece of history,” he said.

“At this point in his life, Gary feels that having parts of AFL football’s history boxed in a storage unit serves no purpose to anyone, and would much rather see others own and enjoy their piece of his collection.”
