The 2001 AFL issue was printed by SNP using the offset photolithographic process with all images printed on the same A4 sheet at one printing.
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 complete set cost $416.00 or $26.00 per sheet.
