Superstars dazzle in Canada Hockey Legends finale

By Fred Baumann

On Sept. 27, a week before the National Hockey League opens its centennial season, Canada Post revealed its Supreme Six — the final installment in its five-year NHL Stamp Collection — in a ceremony at Canada’s Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

In announcing these stamps, Canada Post said, “The 2017 Canadian Hockey Legends issue celebrates the best players ever to don a jersey in the NHL: Maurice (Rocket) Richard and Jean Beliveau (Montreal Canadiens); Gordie Howe (Detroit Red Wings); Bobby Orr (Boston Bruins); Mario Lemieux (Pittsburgh Penguins); and Wayne Gretzky (Edmonton Oilers).”

SportsNet, a national Canadian sports media service, saluted the six on the new stamps in a one-line summary of their astounding statistics: “As a group, the players scored more than 9,500 points in almost 7,000 regular-season games, won 40 Stanley Cup championships — 30 as players and another 10 as management — and more than 80 individual awards.”

The stamps commemorate the 100th anniversary of the NHL and the 125th anniversary of the Stanley Cup, the oldest trophy competed for by professional athletes in North America.

The stamps were issued Sept. 28 in three formats: in a booklet of six self-adhesive stamps, in a small perforated pane of six with moisture-activated gum, and in individual souvenir sheets designed to look like hockey cards.

Each of the stamps in the booklet and in the perforated pane are nondenominated permanent stamps paying the domestic letter rate (currently 85¢). They feature the same designs, which Canada Post describes as a “head-and-shoulders image of the player in uniform, with the Stanley Cup image ghosted in the background.”

Lord Stanley’s famous cup is pictured in the center of the perforated pane, and is also shown on each of six items that Canada Post calls “hockey-card souvenir sheets.”

These vertically formatted 52-millimeter by 78mm $1.80 stamps resembling hockey cards feature full images of the players holding the Stanley Cup. On their backs, as on hockey cards first popularly collected in the early 20th century, are printed career statistics that tell part of each player’s professional story.

Complete sets of six (called “packs” by Canada Post) are sealed in a foil pouch, as modern sports cards often have been.

Canada Post noted, “One in 40 packs includes an original autograph by Bobby Orr or Mario Lemieux.”

Sealed packs of six containing one of each design are available for $10.80 Canadian (Canada Post order no. 404056145).

Both the booklet pane (414056111) and the perforated pane (404056107) sell for $5.10 each.

Avi Dunkelman and Joe Gault of Mix Design in Toronto designed the stamps using photographs courtesy of the Hockey Hall of Fame and from Getty Images.

Colour Innovations, located in the Toronto suburb of North York, printed all the stamps in seven-color offset lithography: 580,000 booklets of six 40mm by 32 mm stamps (3.48 million stamps); 100,000 160mm square perforated panes of six with “one foil stamping plus embossing” added (600,000 stamps); and 100,000 sets of the hockey card souvenir sheets (600,000 stamps).

For each of the six Canada Hockey Legends honorees, Canada Post produced 12,000 190mm by 112mm first-day covers.

The FDCs picture a scene from each stellar career, with each stamp tied by a first-day cancellation from the player’s birthplace in Quebec, Ontario, or Saskatchewan, and each showing the logo of the team on which he starred. Sets of six FDCs (414056131) are $11.10.

Canada Hockey Legends stamps and related items are available online here. Stamps and FDCs are available by mail order from Canada Post Customer Service, Box 90022, 2701 Riverside Drive, Ottawa, ON K1V 1J8 Canada; or by telephone from the United States or Canada at 800-565-4362, and from other countries at 902-863-6550.

Canada’s stamps and stamp products also are available from many new-issue stamp dealers, and from Canada Post’s agent in the United States: Interpost, Box 420, Hewlett, NY 11557.

Canada Post began its NHL stamp series in 2013 with stamps featuring pucks and jerseys (Scott 2661-2668 and 2669-2676, respectively). The series continued with the Original Six Defensemen stamps in 2014 (2786-2793), the NHL Great Canadian Goalie stamps in 2015 (2866-2878), and the NHL Great Canadian Forwards in 2016 (2941-2953).

For the fourth year in a row, I have picked up a pack (and thus a complete set) of Canada Post card stamps.  I have really enjoyed these - I think the designs and subjects have been fantastic to this point,  and was anticipating what the subject matter would be this season.

In 2014, it was the Original Six.

In 2015, the goalies got the call.

In 2016, it was the forwards who were the focus.

So I assumed it would be the defensemen that would get the packaging this year.

Not.  So.  Fast.

2017 Canada Post Souvenir Sheets

6 Stamp Set

(1 in every 40 packs has a signed stamp)

Before I share the subjects of this year's stamps, I just want to go over how great I think these are.

One pack runs $10.  You get six stamps (each with the $1.80 value attached) which can be used for your everyday mailed envelopes.

And if that wasn't enough, for the pack rippers and collectors in us, one in every forty packs will house a certified autograph stamp.  Obviously not every player in the six sign (some of them have passed away), but still.....what an awesome incentive.

It's a no-brainer to pick up a pack - even if it's just to collect the set each season.

So this year, it was "Canadian Hockey Legends".

I like to think that they borrowed my tremendously popular idea of showcasing Stanley Cup photos.

Yes, Maurice Richard is not "hoisting" the Cup, but it's a darn nice shot.

We've all seen this iconic photo of Wayne in full glory.

Look at that smile.  Look at that curly mop.

Good times.

A really nice young shot of Gordie Howe admiring Lord Stanley's Cup is a really nice addition.

Again, I'm partial to the guys who lift that bad boy over their head.

Mmmmmm.....not quite Mario.

Still, you just can't beat this checklist.

Bobby Orr with the huge grin.

Maybe I should start a subset called "hugs".

Last - but definitely not least, Jean Beliveau in what is my favourite card/stamp in the set.  He looks so young, so happy and the colours of the Habs look great in this pic.

So there you have it.  Another season of Canada Post stamps in the books.  I can't help but wonder what they will do next.  Future stars?  Gotta get McDavid in there soon enough.  How about the D-men?  They need some love.

I still think defunct teams would be outstanding.

Now go on out and buy a pack.  Let me know if you get a signed card!!

Canadian Hockey Legends stamps revealed by Canada Post

"The players we immortalized on this year's stamps redefined hockey over careers that spanned more than 60 years," Canada Post president and chief executive officer Deepak Chopra said in a release announcing the 2017 issue.

"They inspired us, and each other, with feats that boggle the mind. They are the Ultimate Six. We hope that by issuing these stamps during the NHL's Centennial, we have helped make this milestone year for the NHL even more special."

Wednesday's ceremony, held in the Hall of Fame's stately Great Hall, was attended by representatives of the six legends honored in the 2017 series: Normand Richard, a son of the Rocket; Élise Béliveau, the widow of Jean; Marty Howe, one of Gordie's sons; Ron Blanchard, a boyhood friend, business partner and brother-in-law of Orr; Walter and Austin Gretzky, father and a nephew of Wayne; and Hall of Fame player Bryan Trottier, on behalf of his longtime friend Lemieux.

Video: Six NHL legends immortalized as Canada Post stamps

In the audience were four NHL icons, all featured on earlier series: goalies Johnny Bower and Bernie Parent, and forwards Red Kelly and Darryl Sittler.

Élise Béliveau, who would pay a visit to the Hall of Fame's mockup of the Canadiens dressing room, sitting with her late husband's No. 4 sweater, was moved to tears in her appreciation of the latest honor paid to Jean, who died in December 2014.

"I'm sure that many of you know that team spirit was a very important value for my husband during his life," she said. "Most certainly he would have been very touched to be recognized and honored to be among this very unique group of Canadian players. In a different way, I guess, this would have made him feel like he was part of a team again."

With a grin, Marty Howe looked at Bower, a former opponent, and Kelly, a teammate with the Detroit Red Wings and later an opponent with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

"There are a lot of great men here," Howe said. "Johnny, Gordie loved you. … Red, the same. Having had the chance to play hockey with Gordie on the same team, I don't know he did it. He came back when he was 45 to play in the WHA with us (himself and a brother, Mark).

"I never realized how truly strong this guy was. He just had a stubbornness about him, like a mule. When he had his mind set on hurting you, he would hurt you. If his mind was to score a goal on you, he would. Pretty much did whatever he wanted. He was a surgeon with his stick in scoring goals and saying, 'Whoops, sorry.' "

Then, with a laugh: "I don't know whether guys believed that he was sorry."

The Top 25 Most Expensive Hockey Cards Ever Sold

We are about one week into the 2021–22 NHL season and there is a lot of excitement about what Turner’s new TV deal to air games can do for the sport. We also witnessed a record sale for a hockey card with the 1979 O-Pee-Chee Wayne Gretzky PSA 10 rookie selling for $3.75 million, tied for 7th on the top-10 most expensive sports cards ever sold. 

Ice Hockey isn’t as popular as sports like Soccer, Basketball, Baseball, and American Football, but from 2008–2020, the Stanley Cup finals averaged 2.15 million viewers per game. In 2020 and 2021, we’ve seen some big money spent on hockey cards and in this list, we are going to look at the top 25 most expensive hockey cards ever sold. 

Note: There are some cards that have sold multiple times in the past year (some within a week or two of each other), but in order to diversify the list, the key sales were included, while removing the rest. For example, Wayne Gretzky’s 1979 Topps PSA 9 was sold 17 times in the past 12 months and all 17 of those sales would qualify for this list based on their sale prices. I’ve included record sales while avoiding follow-on sales that were close in value and would be redundant. Also, this list does not include auctions in progress (for example, Alex Ovechkin’s rookie patch auto card is currently at a bid of $48,000 with 5 days left at Goldin Auctions).
