2020 Premiers: The Tigers

The 2020 Grand Final was held at the Gabba on the 24 October 2020. This was the first Grand Final held out of Victoria and the first held at night, starting at 7.30pm AEDT.

It was a decisive Grand Final win against the valiant Geelong Cats. With it Richmond took its place among the pantheon of the AFL’s greatest teams. The Tigers’ third victory in four years was played before 29,707 fans.

On the 29th October 2020 Australia Post announced the preorder of the Souvenir Sheets for the Premiers, Richmond Tigers. Delivery would occur after the 5 November 2020.

The souvenir stamp sheet includes 8 x $1.10 stamps and the Richmond Tigers logo in the stamp tabs.

The banner shows the front of the medallion cover. Australia Post is celebrating the decisive victory by the Richmond Tigers over the valiant Geelong Cats in the 2020 Toyota AFL Grand Final with the release of the 2020 AFL Premiers stamp and medallion cover. Delivered commenced from 30 November 2020.

It is disappointing that the postmark is the Rugby League Seasonal Postmark. It shows a player running with the ball as has been used on the Rugby League covers since 2009. A change from usual is using Brisbane as the postmark place of issue rather than the city of the Premiers.
