They are "TEAM OF THE YEAR". After all, AFL is not Tennis but a team sport. Subset has been a typical chase card subset in the Select AFL Trading cards series since 1995. Subset released each year reflects the honor of the previous season. The FIRST ALL AUSTRALIAN TEAM subset was released in 1995 Select AFL Series 1 featuring the 1994 season All Australian team (21).
Has been the regular feature of Select AFL Trading Cards Series except 1998 card series where it had not included the All Australia team subset. Most of ALL AUSTRALIAN TEAM cards has been released as a limited edition subset randomly inserted in the packs. There are 3 EXCEPTIONS: 1996 Select AFL Series 1, 2008 Select AFL AFL Classic and 2011 Select AFL Infinity cards series, the ALL AUSTRALIA TEAM had been released as part of the base set (2008 All Australia Team has 2 versions: Base card and Foil Cards). Has always been a low end chase card set up to 2020 AFL Dominance Series.
While many collectors have collected this series, not sure how many collectors have the complete collection of All Australian Team chase card set from 1995 to 2020. Some given up due to the current trend of club card collection, some have given up more because it is not "exciting", having forgotten the fact that "collectible" does not have to be "exciting".
Up to 2020 Select AFL Dominance cards series, there are 26 series/versions of AFL All Australian Team card sets released. Card Zone has piled up the details of the All Australian Team Chase Card Set from 1995 to 2020 (We stopped from 2021 onwards). We have listed them in 4 forms: Single Cards, Team Sets and Complete Team Sets (1995 to 2020) and Complete Full Sets Collection (1995 to 2020). These cards are the original release, not retrospective concept.
You can also go to our AFL Club Sub-Category to search All Australian Team (Some we may have mis-typed as "All Australia Team"). The COMPLETE ALL AUSTRALIAN TEAM CHECKLIST will only appear in the Complete Sets Collection. The item you are purchasing is as the title.
