Jack Dyer Hall of fame legend Jack Dyer

"Finding Jack Dyer", now available in the Tigerland Superstore, is written by Tony Hardy.

Finding Jack Dyer”, a fascinating new book, written by Tony Hardy, explores the life of Richmond ‘Immortal’, and one of Australian Football’s most iconic figures – “Captain Blood”, Jack Dyer.

Hardy embarked on an exhaustive mission – albeit a labor of love – to find out what made the man widely regarded as the greatest Tiger of them all tick.

From the spindly, athletic, 12-year-old, who arrived alone in the “big smoke”, as the “Great Depression” was about to strike, to the mighty impact he had on the playing fields of the then VFL for his beloved Tigers, through to his delightfully-entertaining football media career and, up until his death, aged 89, in August 2003, the Jack Dyer legend is brilliantly brought to life by author Tony Hardy.

In Finding Jack Dyer, we learn about Dyer the hero, Dyer the villain, Dyer the husband, Dyer the father, Dyer the media star, and Dyer the spirit of Tigerland. 

Based on fact, sourced from multiple interviews with family and friends, and enhanced with a splash of the renowned Dyer-esque exaggeration, Finding Jack Dyer is a must-read for anyone with Yellow and Black blood coursing through their veins.

It provides the perfect opportunity to relive Jack Dyer’s glory days . . . to reminisce with those fortunate enough to have seen Captain Blood perform his strong and bold deeds in that famous No. 17 guernsey, throughout a long, glorious career with Richmond.

Finding Jack Dyer is available through the “Tigerland Superstore” at the special member’s price of $31.45 ($34.95 for non-members).
