History and use
This framed sports memorabilia titled ‘A Tribute to the Legends of Origin: 1980 - 2005’ was presented to then Premier of Queensland, Peter Beattie on 13th February 2007, by Mal Meninga on behalf of Queensland’s former State of Origin players of the past 25 years. It features a copy of an oil painting by Jamie Cooper along with the signatures of the best 25 State of Origin players.

The object was gifted to Peter Beattie as ‘the coach’ of the Queensland Labor Party following the Labor Party’s big win in the September 2006 state election.

Jamie Cooper is an Australian professional sports artist who is also a former AFL player for Fitzroy. He was commissioned in 2004, by QLD State of Origin to create an artwork of the greatest QLD team of the past 25 years. Limited editions of the work were produced and sold, along with the original painting to raise funds for children’s cancer research. The edition presented to Peter Beattie was the 52nd out of 250 produced in 2005.
