Interesting!
I just got a sheet of the balls. I will use them on New Jersey cancel covers. At least the hockey stamps look like stamps, the ball stamps are round and look more like banana seals than stamps!

re: USPS to issue Hockey Stamps!

It was designed in Canada so maybe they wanted a more hometown feeling since hockey is more a past time for people than here. Here it is more spectator sport but not sure about northern US. The USPS may have just tagged along.

Nitpicking non-Yank here.

It is Ice Hockey not Hockey. Hockey is played with a curved stick and a ball ?

Cheeky grin

Malcolm

P.S. Just to prove I read the US threads too.

re: USPS to issue Hockey Stamps!

ice hockey vs. hockey is just like football and soccer. :-)
Football is the most popular sport in the world (and only called soccer in the US) whereas American Football is a sport that is hugely popular in the USA but considered extremely boring in the rest of the world (just my opinion, I really tried to watch a game when I was in the USA 2 years ago, but I gave up...)

Yes, what a difference. Just teeth protection and a rugby cap or full body armour...
