According to info received by StampNews.com New Zealand Post has designed a special edition of All Blacks stamp. There's a certain mana and prestige that comes with being part of the All Blacks ‒ it's an honour reserved only for New Zealand's very best rugby players.
The ultimate symbol of the All Blacks is their iconic jersey, to which the Post Office pays tribute in this official All Blacks stamp and coin issue that will become available for purchasing on the 2d of September.
2015 is the year in which the All Blacks will attempt to reclaim the title of Rugby World Cup champions. To recognize this significant moment in New Zealand's sporting history, New Zealand Post worked with New Zealand Rugby and its partner, Adidas, to bring the philatelists a special stamp and coin that epitomizes the very essence of being part of the All Blacks – the jersey.
Worn with pride for generations, the jersey has been some variation of a black uniform with a silver fern since 1893, and in 1905 the team became habitually referred to as the 'All Blacks'. Although the jersey has changed many times over the years to keep up with the intense pace of New Zealand's national game, the mana of the jersey continues to this day.

This exciting, innovative stamp contains real fabric supplied by Adidas from the All Blacks 2015 Home Replica Jersey. The fabric has been printed on with precision to include the All Blacks logo, the Adidas logo and the AIG logo, and then die-cut to replicate the real jersey worn on the field. The jersey is applied to gummed stamp paper, with the complete design replicating a framed jersey.
