Here was the year when the young guns really hit their stride. It was a very good year for St. Kilda.

2008 began with the Saints winning the 2008 National Australia Bank Cup. The team had wins over Richmond in the round of 16, Geelong in the quarter-finals, Essendon in the semi-finals and won the final against the Adelaide Crows by 5 points at Football Park (AAMI Stadium) in Adelaide 69 to 64.

Jason Gram became the third St Kilda player to win the Michael Tuck Medal after being judged best player on the ground in the 2008 NAB Cup Final.

In a competitive 2008 AFL season St Kilda again qualified for the finals series, a 108 point win over Essendon in the final home and away round saw the club take fourth position for the finals series with 13 wins. St Kilda were defeated by Geelong in the qualifying finals, defeated Collingwood in the semi-finals and were eliminated by the eventual premiers, Hawthorn, in the preliminary final.

The young guns at St. Kilda however acquitted themselves in exceptional fashion and the star team members are in this calendar which has never been opened and makes for a great piece of sporting memorabilia.

Die hard Saint Kilda fans should find this calendar a fantastic addition to their collection.

Your 2008 calendar is reusable in: 2036, 2064, 2092, and 2104.
