2001 Footy Stamp Covers

Sheets of 20 x 45c Australia and Globe stamps (Nature & Nation, May 2000) were personalised for each of the 16 AFL clubs. The borders are decorated with club colours and the AFL and team logos. Each tab has an image of one of 20 players. Sheets were sold through post offices, rather than the clubs. There were released from the Philatelic Bureau on the 30th March 2001 and 19th April 2001 from General Post Offices.

The 19th April Issue of the Port Adelaide P stamp Sheet showed Chad Cornes in the upper right hand position. The Port Adelaide FC  original issue of the 30th March showed Kane Cornes his younger brother. This was withdrawn but two sheets are known to have been released. A Cover was released by First Class Collectables and is shown below.

First Class Collectibles issued a set of 20 FDCs for each team. A Full team set is shown for the Brisbane Lions and Port Adelaide.
