About Stamp

As players and fans alike prepare for the 2001 All-Star weekend scheduled for February 2-4 in Denver, Colorado, Canada Post shines the spotlight on six All-Star legends. Jean Béliveau, Terry Sawchuk, Eddie Shore, Denis Potvin, Bobby Hull and Syl Apps grace the souvenir sheet of six domestic rate ($0.47) stamps to be released on January18, 2001.

Jean Béliveau

A rare blend of grace and power, Jean Béliveau first began to attract province-wide attention as a junior player with the Quebec Citadelles; attention that grew during his senior years with the Quebec Aces. His much-anticipated transition to the NHL took place October 3, 1953, when Béliveau signed with the Montreal Canadiens. During his 18 full seasons with the Canadiens, Béliveau helped his team win 10 Stanley Cup championships. He was also named to 10 All-Star teams. Before his retirement in 1971, Béliveau had set the record for most goals scored by a centre.

About the Stamp

Stéphane Huot, an independent graphic designer from Montreal, regards the All-Stars issue as a labour of love. He was honoured with the responsibility of depicting these six hockey greats because he feels they are not only sportsmen, but cultural icons who shape our national pride. The design aspects he chose (coloured stripes, stars) were inspired by the graphic language of hockey uniforms, with silver added to lend prestige. Colourful illustrations by Charles Vinh convey the dynamic feeling of the sport, as do the action shots of the players. While the pane was rendered in eight-colour lithography, three photographs were kept in black-and-white to stay faithful to the original photos of that time.


Designed by Stéphane Huot. Based on an illustration by Charles Vinh.
