100th Anniversary of the Toronto Maple Leafs

Toronto Maple Leaf Stamp

To commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Canada Post issued this souvenir sheet in 2017 depicting a hockey sweater.  The actual stamp has a denomination of $5 and bears an embroidered maple leaf in the centre of the stamp.

According to the Canada Post presentation folder:

“In celebration of the team’s proud history, the centennial sweater sports a redesigned Maple Leafs’ logo with 17 veins for the year the franchise was founded and 31 points in the opening of Maple Leaf Gardens in 1931.   The 13 veins in the top part of the Leafs logo mark the club’s Stanley Cup Championship victories to date.”
