About Stamp

On February 1-2, 2002, the City of Los Angeles welcomes hockey's brightest stars as it hosts the 2002 NHL All-Star Game and events. Since 1947, NHL's best players have been selected by the coaches, executives, the media or fans to take part in this spectacular event.

Phil Esposito
Phil Esposito retired from playing in the NHL in 1981 with a total of 717 goals, 1,590 points and ten All-Star Game appearances. He had joined the Chicago Blackhawks in 1963, and was a consistent high-scorer, but after his trade to Boston in 1967 he broke many scoring records and led Canada to a dramatic come-from-behind win in the 1972 Canada-Russia series. Esposito eventually turned to coaching and management for several major-league teams, passing on his legacy to a new generation of players.

About the Stamp
Designed by Stéphane Huot of Montreal, and with illustrations by Charles Vinh and Pierre Rousseau, this glorious, stamp reflects the history and personalities of some of hockey's most enduring legends. This stamp includes a detailed head-and-shoulder portrait superimposed on a silver star.
