THE 1958 Collingwood premiership memorabilia collection of the late Graeme Fellowes has been stolen from his home.

Police are investigating the theft, which occurred between February 28 and March 1 this year.

Fellowes was a member of the Collingwood premiership team in 1958, playing 66 games for the Magpies between 1956 and 1964.

He passed away on January 24 this year.

A 1958 framed premiership photo was stolen from his home, along with various team photos and memorabilia.

It is believed the offenders broke into Fellowes’ home through the roof before entering the vacant property.

A police spokesperson told AFL.com.au they were still investigating the incident.

Police are appealing for the person responsible to come forward and return the items to the police, or the Collingwood Football Club.

Anyone with further information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
