On 13 November 2006 the shared intention of the Hungarian Olympic Committee and Magyar Posta (Hungary Post) to celebrate the medal-winners of the summer Olympics held fifty years beforehand became reality through the issue of a stamp block, which at the same time fulfilled the hopes of collectors. The theme "Olympic History" is expanded every two years and in 2008 pays tribute to the medal winners of the Helsinki Olympics.

The stamp block's release was the result of co-operation with the HOC. The photographs for the graphic design were provided by the Archives of the Hungarian Museum of Sport.
