I have mentioned at times how much I enjoy Dave Steidel’s book, Remember the AFL, and it is not just because Dave contributes articles to this site (though I love those as well!). Steidel really did a fantastic job on his book, and elements that would be attractive to all types of AFL fans. Stories, trading cards, statistics, and much more are scattered throughout the book.
I was digging around online, when I stumbled upon this interview that Dave Steidel did with Sports Collectors Daily. The interview is now several years old, but it contains info and ideas that are still relevant today.
