A. V. "Bert" Hyde (3 June 1907 - 23 October 1989) was an Australian rules footballer who played with Hawthorn in the VFL.

Hyde was a fullforward and was Hawthorn's premier target up forward during their first decade in the league. He topped their goalkicking from 1926–1930, with a best of 62 goals in 1928 to finish third in the League's goalkicking, an impressive feat considering that Hawthorn finished last without a win. He also represented Victoria at interstate football. His last couple of seasons were spent at full back.

Later, Hyde was a businessman in Melbourne.[1] In 1965 he was appointed President of the Metropolitan Football League.[1]

He died on 23 October 1989.[2]
