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!

Interesting that the design does not use any NHL or team regalia. Sports leagues must be demanding ridiculous royalties from USPS, or the royalty budget was blown just on paying for the likenesses.

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

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...
