2020 Black History Issue: Colored Hockey Championships
Celebrate Black History Month with this Official First Day Cover recognizing an important time in Canadian ice hockey history.
From 1895 until the early 1930s, All-Black hockey teams in the Maritimes challenged each other to exciting matches and – the ultimate prize – the Colored Hockey Championship. This stamp offers a glimpse into this historic hockey period with an illustration (based on an actual photo) of the Halifax Eurekas, the team that won the Championship in 1904.
More than just incredible athletes, these players made important contributions to Canada’s national sport with their fast-paced, physical games and their down-to-the-ice style of goaltending. Today we celebrate their achievements.
