Canada Post unveils new Summit Series stamp

Aided by players who took part in the tournament, Canada Post unveiled its latest Canada 150 stamp – a tribute to to Canada’s victory at the 1972 Summit Series.

Present in Winnipeg for the unveiling were Pat Stapleton, who chairs the board of Team Canada 1972, players Bobby Clarke, Yvan Cournoyer, Pete Mahovlich, Frank Mahovlich, Eddie Johnston, Brad Park, Wayne Cashman and Jean Ratelle. Sean Goldsworthy (representing his father Bill Goldsworthy) and John Ferguson Jr. (representing his father John Ferguson) were also there.

Together with Colonel Andy Cook, 17 Wing Winnipeg Commander, they unveiled a stamp celebrating the 1972 Summit Series between Canada and the Soviet Union – chosen as one of the unforgettable moments since the country’s centennial in 1967. It is the eighth of 10 moments being celebrated in stamps to mark Canada’s 150th birthday.
