One more issue that requires your help, this time it's Canada's set from 1992 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the NHL.
Again, I need to know who are the players in the stamps :D
I'm sure these are not the designer's creation, they are real hockey players. At least I can say that the 3rd stamp in the scan (taken from the net :oops: ) presents Babe Siebert of Montreal Marrons. But who are the rest?

Image

Unfortunately, I have no better scans. Possibly, these links will help - there's a zoom there :)

Found the answer at the Canadian Post's site.
The stamp to commemorate the 1942-1967 period depicts Claude Provost and Terry Sawchuck, and the other (for the years of 1968-1992) shows the last mask of Jacque Plante. Unfortunately (for me), none played at the Olympics.
However, the player in the last stamp is Wayne Gretsky did, in 1998. Besides, he is a recipient of the Olympic Order :D So, I'll have to look for this stamp for my collection/

Need your help again, this time with the Canadian ice hockey stamp from 2011 to commemorate Winnipeg Jets' first goal. It presents an episode from the game between the Winnipeg Jets and Pittsburgh Penguins on October 9, 2011.
The players in the stamp I know are the scorer Nik Antropov (No.80) and David Johnny Oduya (No.29) from the Winnipeg Jets, and the goalkeeper Marc-Andre Fleur and Steve Sullivan (No.26) from the Pittsburgh Penguins. Who is No. 61 (supposedly).

And one more Canadian team I need your help with - the national soccer team for the FIFA 1986 World Cup. It's shown on the stamp in a set issued by St.Vincent and Grenadines but I can't find the original photograph to define the footballers. I only know that the goalkeeper in the first row is Tino Lettieri, twice Olympian (in 1976 and 1984).
Beside him, there were many 1984 Olympians in the team. They are: Robert Italo Lenarduzzi, Bruce Alec Wilson, Randolph Lee Ragan, Terence Moore, Ian Christopher Bridge, Gerard Gray, Igor Vrablic, Michael Sweeney, Dale William Mitchell, Paul John James,David McDonald Norman, Pasquale de Luca and Sven Habermann. But I need to know if these are present in the stamp and their definite places :D So any help will be appreciated :D :D

vicaf60,

The teams on the stamp are Winnipeg and Montreal, not Pittsburgh.

The goaltender is Carey Price #31 and Raphael Diaz is #61.

AMark, thanks for your corrections and for your help with No.61 :D
So No.26 is Blake James Wheeler, not Sullivan :)

By the way, it's not a "real" stamp (it is personalized postage).

I'm awfully sorry for the quality of the scan but I failed to find a better one, and I don't have the stamps myself :oops:
The Netherlands' latest issue to commemorate their participation in the 2014-2015 Volvo Ocean Race with the Brunel Team. What I would like to find out (hope there'll be someone who is aware in the ocean yacht racing :) ) if Pablo Arrarte and Rokas Milevičius, both the Brunel crewmen, are shown in the stamps and where exactly, if possible. The matter is that these two are Olympians who participated in the Olympic races in different classes.

I believe they all used real foto’s.

Jan van Mechelen and Laurens van der Pool, the designers from ZEE strategie & ontwerp (https://www.zee.nl/) made them. I couldn’t find detail information about where exactly the foto’s where taken, but perhaps you could ask them yourself?

Also some detail information (also in English) see https://collectclub.postnl.nl/volvo-ocean-race-pitstop-den-haag-2015.html And click “Technische specificatie”, “Over het ontwerp” and “Over de ontwerper” and then ENG.

TheRoyalCounty, are you sure about Giovanni or do you judge from his number in the FIFA 1998 Cup? It seems to be Bebeto (José Roberto Gama de Oliveira) who was No.7 in FIFA 1994 Cup in the Brazilian team. The stamp was issued in 1996, so I don't think that photos of Giovanni with No. 7 were available at the time

I'm seeking for help again from Australian Stampboarders :D
In 2014 the Australian Post issued a set of stamps on equestrian sports. Two of them show Olympic events - dressage and show jumping. I managed to find the information on the dressage stamp - it presents the Australian Olympian (Beiing 2008) Heath Ryan on Regardez Moi based on Julie Wilson's (judging from the official information) or Bronwen Healy's photograph (https://www.bronwenhealy.com.au). But who is on the show jumping stamp? Possibly, there's some name on the maxi-card. Can anybody see it?

Well, nobody can help? :( :)
Then one more issue, this time from France (though I didn't notice many members from this country :( )
I suppose that the man in the right stamp is Jean-Philippe Gatien, famous French table tennis champion. Can anybody confirm or reject it? And who is the woman player then?

My Michel catalogue doesn’t list any information about the players.

You could try it in this threat : France and French Colonies stamps - Discussion Thread

Perhaps someone with a detailed catalogue can tell you more?

Thanks for the link, JKA, but I doubt it would help. I need information that is rather outside philately, and I didn't notice many sports fans in the thread you referred to :(
I still hope someone with a better knowledge of table tennis will look into this thread :)

Meanwhile, 2 more stamps to define the sportsmen in them: Samoa and New Caledonia, South Pacific Games in 2007. Can anybody help with their names, possibly?

I need your help again, and I hope there are football experts among philatelists :D
Am I right to suppose that the footballer in the 2005 Portugal souvenir sheet is Rabah Madjer who played for FC Porto in 1995-97 and was a key figure in Porto's 1987 European Cup Final victory?

Can anybody help recognize the footballers in the stamps? I'm sure these are real sportsmen, however, I'm not much of a football expert to name them :(

Today I received a kind reply from Julie Wilson. The sportsman in the stamp (and maxi card) is Jamie Kermond on Valhalla. He hasn't been an Olympian (unfortunately :( ) yet, but he's going to participate in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio (hopefully :D )

Again, I have a question concerning football stamps, to be more precise, supposed footballers in this 1985 Vietnam set. There is a supposition that the set presents famous goalkeepers of the Xxth century, exactly,
1. Josef Dieter "Sepp" Maier (Germany)
2. Ricardo Zamora Martínez (Spain)
3. Dino Zoff (Italy)
4. Lev Yashin (USSR)
5. Gordon Banks (England)
7. František Plánička (Czechoslovakia)

I would like to know opinions of those interested in football - am I right or wrong? If I'm right who can be in stamp No.6 then?

Image

The picture of stamp 7 (6 dong) is edited to remove another forum logo, please do not pay attention to it.

Another stamp, with vague hopes that someone will know the answer :D - this time from Japan, issued in 2001.
The volleyball players (especially No.1) have very natural faces which makes me suppose that the stamp might have been designed after some real photograph. Can anybody give a more definitive reply?

Need help again with this Israeli stamp:

Image

Issued in 2004 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of FIFA foundation, it presents an episode from a football match between the USA Olympic team and Israel team played on September 26, 1948 at Giants Stadium in New-York. Shmuel Ben Dror, the Israeli team's ever first captain and the first international scorer, scores a goal to Archibald Louis Strimel, the US 1948 Olympic team goalkeeper (so the stamp is on my search list :D ).
The man in the back (black trousers, white shirt) is the match's referee Fred Coggin, from the USA.
Possibly, someone can help with the name of the other footballers, especially those from the US Olympic team - they all participated in the 1948 London Olympics.

Here's the photo the stamp is based on:

And one more issue I would be happy to receive help with :D - Ireland, 2016, Cycling, a set of 4 stamps issued in regular sheets in blocks of four, and in mini sheets.

Image

The two upper stamps definitely are photo-based but they present family cycling for leisure. So they are of no interest to me. But the two lower stamps show competition cycling, and there may be Olympians among the cyclist depicted, and I would like to know who are these sportsmen in the stamps. Any help will be appreciated.
The same refers to the sportsman in the margin of the mini sheet - any ideas who he/she may be? I suppose it may be a BMX cyclist training for competitions.

Thank you, Alex, however, I have been aware of this piece of official information, and it contains nothing as to help with the names of the cyclists in the stamps, unfortunately :(
It's a usual thing when postal administration publish but a general description, possibly, to officially adhere to the obsolete rule not to depict living persons (which has not been true for quite a long time) :(

Hello, the press release of 2011 does not indicate the name of footballer especially the team of AC Milan, here is what is written (translation google (please excuse me) The design of the stamp dedicated to the " Winning team of the Italian Football League - Serie A represents, on a gray background: shattered red, the emblem of Milan, the tricolor shield where the number 18 is located indicates the championships won by the Milan team and a player with T-shirt Rossoneri in the act of typing in a balloon.
The number 18 of the team was Marek Jankulovski Czech footballer who played a defender and for my part I find to him many features with the stamp

Thanks for your interest in the thread, Thierry, however, 18 refers to the number of the champion titles won by Milano, not the footballer in the stamp.
I can't read clearly his number but it should be 6, 8 or 9 from what I can see :)

I suppose it's time to raise this thread in the list - possibly, someone will look into it and give answers to the questions previously asked :wink:

Meanwhile, a piece of information I've just got for my request to the Estonian Yachting Union related to 2 Estonian stamps from 2004. I hope the information will be useful for somebody interested in Sailing in Philately, if not now then in some future :)

The first stamp was issued on May 4, 2004 within the Europa program - Vacations, and shows the Estonian women'steam in the 470 class - Maria Veessaar and Maiki Saaring.

Image

The other stamp was issued on August 17, 2004 to commemorate the European Championship in Dragon-Class Yachting that was held near Tallinn between August 29 and September 4, 2004. Again, the stamp presents the Estonian team (which is natural :lol: ) in action - Jevgeni Kazakov, Jaak Unnuk and Aleksandr Karboinov.
Image
Unfortunately (for me :( ), none of the above sportsmen / sportswomen are Olympians, only Maria Veessaar is a trainer of the Estonian Olympic sailor, Anna Pohlak.

Another stamp the "mystery" of which was solved with a kind help of a sport federation :D
I have long suspected that the jumper in this Lithuanian stamp is a real sportsman designed after a photograph, but I failed to find such photo :( Besides, I was wrong to search among triple jumps specialists :lol:

Image

Lithuania, 1998. Postage stamp to commemorate the 6th world Lithuanian sports games

And here's the reply from the LLAF (Athletic Federation of Lithuania) - it's Antanas Algimantas Vaupšas, a Lithuanian long jumper who participated (as part of the USSR team then) in the 1964 Summer Olympic games in Tokyo. Another stamp for my Olympic collection and a pleasant feeling of one more enigma solved :D

Not so much response as I would like, yet, it's time to revive the thread again :wink:

First, the Czech Post issued (as scheduled) a stamp on May 3, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the outstanding Czech gymnast Věra Čáslavská who won 7 gold and 4 silver Olympic medals during 3 successive Olympic games - from 1960 to 1968.
Unfortunately, I do not have the stamp myself, so I will use a scan from the net:
Image
If someone from our Czech Stampboarders is interested I would be glad to exchange some issues from Belarus for the stamp (and a FDC, as an option :wink: )

To continue, a story behind this mini sheet from Fiji (1998 - XVI Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur).
Image
Waisale Tikoisolomoni Serevi who is depicted in the stamp has never participated in Olympic competitions, however, the sportsmen in the upper selvage looked quite real. So I supposed they might have been designed after some photograph, and why couldn't the depict Olympians? :wink:
And I turned to be right :lol: - the reply from the Oceania Sport Information Centre (which came very fast :D ) stated that the discus thrower was Sitiveni Ligamamada Rabuka (Fiji's Premier Minister between 1992 and 1999) who participated in 1974 Commonwealth Games in 4 disciplines (discus, hammer, shot push and decathlon) but never entered the Olympic arena :(
However, the other two are Olympians :lol: - Anthony Conrad Nesty from Suriname (Olympic champion in 1988 in Seoul in 100 m butterfly swimming),
Image
and Albert Barry Miller who participated in the Olympic Games (decathlon) in 1984, 1988 and 1992.
So, one more item in my Olympic want list :lol:

And to complete, another fresh issue - from Luxembourg (March 7, 2017).

Image

The stamp commemorated the 90th anniversary of Joseph Barthel' birth and the 65th anniversatry of his victory in Helsinki in 1952, in 1500 m (the first gold Olympic medal for Luxembourg in their history).
The stamp is based on a photograph of Barthel's finish:

Image

So, we have 5 Olympians ваузшсеув in this stamp :wink: - beside Joseph Barthel himself, they are: Robert Earl McMillen, USA, silver (to the left of Barthel), Werner Lueg, Germany, bronze (the utmost right in the stamp), Sir Roger Gilbert Bannister, UK (barely seen behind the champion :wink: ), and Patrick El Mabrouk, France (No. 177).
What's additionally interesting, in my eye - they are ALL participants of ONE Olympic games only.

Sorry but it's not my fault :shock: - I did not delete any pictures. There must be something wrong with some pictures uploaded with the Bucket which I had used before Imgur.

Again help is needed from football fans among Stampboarders :wink:
In 1981 Argentina issued a mini sheet of 4 stamps to commemorate Espamer'81 Stamp Exhibition held in Buenos Aires, and the coming 1982 FIFA World Cup.

Image Image
Image Image

Sorry for the scans' quality but I've taken them from the net - I have no this set, and I'm not sure yet if I need it :wink:

The stamps present footballers from different teams, presumably taken during the previous, 1978 FIFA World Cup held in Argentina.
The goalkeeper in the 4th stamp is definitely Sepp Maier from West Germany's team, and the photo is taken during the 1978 tournament - see a photo from the match between W. Germany and Italy:
Image

No. 10 in the 3rd stamp is Mario Kempes, I believe.
So I need the names of the others :) and will be grateful for any help :D

The first picture looks like Karl-Heinz Rummenigge of West Germany and I can only think the team in green would be Mexico

The second picture is from the Spain - Austria match, I cannot identify the players.

The third is Kempes against Peru - if the Peruvian player is the number 3 it is Rodolfo Manzo.

The last looks more like Fillol the Argentina goalkeeper - the clue for me is the badge which looks like AFA

Thanks a lot, basilthedog :D I hope your hints will help :D
P.S. You've been absolutely right about Ubaldo Fillol - here's the exact photo used for the stamp:

Image

The 3rd stamp seems to present Mario Kempes (No. 10, Argentina), Rodolfo Manzo (No. 3, Peru) and Teófilo Cubillas (No. 10, Peru).

Another issue from Argentina - 2002, FIVB Volleyball Men's World Championship held on Argentina on September 28 – October 13, a set of 4 stamps designed after photographs that were presumably taken during 2002 FIVB Volleyball World League tournament that was held again in Argentina from 27 June to 18 August 2002.
The 1st stamp shows Argentinians Gustavo Federico Porporatto (No. 3) and Jorge Elgueta blocking the attack of a player from Portugal (unfortunately, I failed to find out his name :( ).
Stamp 2 - Marcos Antonio Milinkovic (Argentina, No. 1) is attacking against Portugal (and again I don't know who is the defending player)
3rd stamp - Argentinian block against Nalbert Tavares Bitencourt from Brazil (no name of the Argentinian player :( ).
And the final stamp in the set presents Argentinian players after winning a game, including Hugo Néstor Conte (No. 7) and Gustavo Federico Porporatto (No. 3) - as to the rest I can't name them, at least now. I hope someone will help :wink:

Three more issues I need help with from knowledgeable Stampboarders :wink: - this time from Bolivia, all with football theme.
The first question is on 2 stamps from 1953 set commemorating the 21st South American football championship. My opinion is that these two stamps were designed after photographs. Possibly, someone can name at least the playing teams.
Image Image
The same stamps are repeated in mini sheets issued in 1981 for 1982 FIFA World Cup, with photographs of game scenes on the sheetlets. Any information will be appreciated, again :D

And two mini sheets from 1982:
