Canada Post is celebrating the centennial anniversary of the Toronto Maple Leafs by issuing three new commemorative stamps, including one with a miniature fabric crest attached.

The special fabric crest stamp depicts the sweater worn by Maple Leafs captain Ted (Teeder) Kennedy during the 1949-50 NHL season, with the Leafs crest in fabric. The crest is made with real fabric, a first for Canada Post. Kennedy played centre for the Leafs between 1942-43 and 1956-57, captaining the team for eight years.
