New Zealand post issued special stamp featuring iconic jersey to pay tribute to the rugby players, All Blacks.
All Blacks – it’s an honour reserved only for New Zealand’s very best rugby players.
2015 All Blacks
2015 is the year in which the team will attempt to reclaim the title of Rugby World Cup champions.
To mark this significant event New Zealand post with New Zealand Rugby and its partner, adidas, brings the special stamp that epitomises the very essence of being part of the Team – the jersey.
Worn with pride for generations, the jersey has been some variation of a black uniform with a silver fern since 1893, and in 1905 the team became habitually referred to as the “All Blacks’.
Although the jersey has changed many times over the years to keep up with the intense pace of national game, the mana of the jersey continues to this day.
Real fabric on the stamp
This exciting, innovative stamp contains real fabric supplied by adidas form the All Blacks 2015 Home Replica Jersey.
The fabric has been printed on with precision to include the team logo, the adidas logo and the AIG logo, and then die-cut to replicate the real jersey worn on the field.
The jersey is applied to gummed stamp paper, with the complete design replicating a framed jersey.
