1972 Summit Series
Dan Pavic provides 1972 Summit Series.com with images of two beautiful 1972 Summit Series post cards.

Many of these cards were sent to the players. As a result, harder to find unmarked cards are worth more, although there is no real value guide for an item like this.
And of course you can't send a post card without a stamp. Keith Lenn provides us with photos of the 1997 commemorative Canadian stamp entitled "The Series of the Century"
Apparently there are other and extremely rare variations of this stamp. Collector Danny Hamill boasts a promo sheet - first day issue on an envelope - in his extensive collection.
A $5 phone card was also issued at that time
Designed by Alain Leduc and Illustrated by Charles Vinh, the stamp features Denis Brodeur's famous photograph of Paul Henderson jumping into Yvan Cournoyer's arms. Computer graphics were done by Pierre Rousseau.
The Royal Canadian Mint packaged a unique coin which was packaged with stamps in a special edition commemorative folder, and sold for $29.95 back in 1997.
