The centenary of the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey team has been marked with the issue of two commemorative stamps, one of which is available with a miniature fabric crest attached.

Canada Post has announced the release of the commemorative issue, which honours 100 years of the Toronto Maple Leafs, one of four teams that officially formed the National Hockey League®.

Canada Post President and CDO Deepak Chopra said: “The Toronto Maple Leafs are a part of the fabric that ties this country together with some of the most passionate fans in hockey. “It is therefore an honour to celebrate the incredible legacy of this Original Six™ team through Canada Post’s iconic stamp program.”

The special fabric crest stamp, available only as a commemorative souvenir sheet, depicts the sweater worn by Maple Leafs captain Ted (Teeder) Kennedy during the 1949-50 NHL season, with the Leafs crest in fabric. Kennedy played centre for the Leafs between 1942-43 and 1956-57, captaining the team for eight years. He remains the youngest ever to suit up for the Leafs (he was 17) and the first, along with teammate Turk Broda, to win five Stanley Cup® Championships.

The Toronto Maple Leafs issue was designed by Lionel Gadoury and Dave Hurds for Context Creative of Toronto. The silver logo domestic-rate stamp is available in a booklet of 10 for $8.50. A 50-stamp coil of the blue puck-shaped stamp is offered with a complementary puck-shaped dispenser. A fabric patch souvenir sheet comes in a collectible folder and sells for $5. Official First Day Covers (OFDCs) of all three stamps are available as a set for $9.70.
