I know I can rely on my post office, but what happens after it leaves them.. I asked for an extra cds to be placed on the edge, tying the MS to the cover, to make it more obvious that it was postmarked.

Impressions 2019

Does anyone else get heart sink when the Impressions 2019 catalogue arrives?
Will I be spending large amounts of "hard earned" on things I don't really want.
The only cricket item apart from the "C" coin appears to be the 25th Anniversary of the PNC with an image of FDC for Bradman.

Image Image

It is apparently "out of stock" on the first day of sale

"stamperija"

There were a new set of four and a MS from Togo. I try to work out the stadium in the background as the stamps appear to be made up from several different images and time periods (eg Bradman batting on the New Adelaide Oval). The background in this case is Lords.

Image Image
Image

I thought there would be more issues after the World Cup. It may reflect that the stamperija countries are diminishing.

I didn't pick up the Impressions - Bradman PNC... assuming its just going to be the "C" coin in the same cover.

Does anyone think "Howzat" is related to Cricket ?

Sherbert's 1970s hit "Howzat!" was part of the 1998 issue of "Australian Rock and Roll" stamps.
David Kirby classified the stamp as an "associated issue".

Here I disagree with David, Howzat was a hit single by Sherbet

Correct with Sherbet Kenneth, but with lots of English words there are multiple meanings although I would really call this "Aussie Slang".

Howzat

"Howzat" is what is now commonly used to "appeal" in cricket. A bowler or fielder will appeal if they think the batsman is out. The bowler or fielder has to ask the Umpire (Referee) "How is that? or How's that?" before the Umpire will give a decision. However most players scream it quickly at the top of their lungs so it sounds like Howzat.

Also known as "Asking the question"
So yes Howzat can relate to cricket & I have put the "H" stamp in my cricket stamp collection. However I haven't put the Sherbet stamp in it. I must have a chat with David Kirby. :)

Melbourne 2021 39th FIAP International Stamp and Coin Exhibition
In order to raise money the "Melbourne 2021 Organising committee" has had the left over imperforate MS overprinted in silver and gold from the "Sydney Stamp and Coin expo" postmarked with the daily postmark from the four days of the Expo.
They can be ordered from https://melbourne2021.com.au/ for $100 per set. Only 20 available.

Image Image Image Image

Only silver overprint displayed. (It is very difficult from the scans to distinguish between Silver and gold)

“Sports for All”

While looking through a container of Stamp Packs at the Brisbane Stamp and Coin expo I came across a Singapore Pack of 3 stamps with multiple sporting stick figures. As a member of the British Commonwealth I felt it was likely that cricket would be represented. In 1973 Singapore set out on a program to promote sport to the masses. It aimed to encourage the whole nation to keep fit and healthy by exercising and engaging in sports. Singapore is ranked 21st in T20 in men's cricket. Their main rival is Malaysia.

In 1981 Singapore Post issued a set of three stamps to promote the program. It contained multiple stick figures for different sports. The 75c issue contained a stick batsman and wicket keeper. (?)

Not just Aussie slang! I imagine it's used in cricket worldwide.

The song was inspired by cricket and Wikipedia says:

In 1976, someone suggested to Tony Mitchell and keyboardist Garth Porter that Howzat might make a good title for a song because some of the members of Sherbet loved cricket.

Despite Mitchell not being a good cricketer, he sat down with Garth Porter at Porter's Rose Bay home to work on the idea.

Mitchell soon came up with the "doo-doo, doo-doo" bass riff, after which the first thing that came into Porter's mind was the phrase "I caught you out."

Apart from "I caught you out" the lyrics don't appear to have anything to do with cricket but that wouldn't necessarily stop fans at the cricket singing it:

Howzat
Sherbet

You told me I was the one
The only one who got your head undone
And for a while I believed the line that you spun

But I've been looking at you
Looking closely at the things you do
I didn't see it the way you wanted me to

How how howzat
You messed about
I caught you out
Howzat
Now that I found where you're at
It's goodbye
Well howzat
It's goodbye

You only came for a smile
Even though you're really not my style
I didn't think that you'd run me 'round
Like you do

How how howzat
You messed about
I caught you out
Howzat
Now that I found where you're at
It's goodbye
Well howzat
It's goodbye
Aha
O yeah, oh yeah

Well I've been looking at you
(I'll tell you what I see)
Looking closely…


I liken it to the Newcastle United FC anthem "The Blayden Races" having nothing to do with football.

Off-topic but I couldn't resist...

In the world of brass bands "Blayden Races" (based on the song) is also a really good euphonium solo. :D

I remember playing it many years ago on a band tour in Germany.

I have added the 10 cent price rise to the proposed design of the Gabba stamp for the "2020 Sports Stadiums Series Two" so that Australia Post wont have to spend any of the increase on deciding which stadium should be chosen for the issue.

After all Australia hasn't lost a Gabba test for 31 years since 1988. In the 56 matches played at the ground, Australia has won 34, drawn 13, tied 1 and lost 8. Pakistan is the most recent to loose in four days. It is becoming a tradition for the Australian team to pre-arrange a fishing trip for the fifth day. England have a notoriously poor record at The Gabba, and have only won two test matches at the ground since the end of the Second World War. Many of their defeats have been heavy and only seven England players have scored centuries at the ground.

Its own underground train station is in the process of being built. This will connect with the Gold Coast and head in a tunnel under the Brisbane River to the city. Multiple residential towers and a makeover of the ground will also occur.

Richie Benaud (1930-2015)

He was an Australian cricketer who, after his retirement from international cricket in 1964, became a highly regarded commentator on Channel Nine's "Wide World of Sport". Benaud's distinctive speaking style has been frequently parodied on Australian comedy series. His trademark wearing of a cream or white jacket during live commentary with microphone is carried on by a section of the crowd at all Australian Test Matches.

Benaud was a Test cricket all-rounder, blending leg spin bowling with lower-order batting aggression. Along with fellow bowling all-rounder Alan Davidson, he helped restore Australia to the top of world cricket in the late 1950s and early 1960s after a slump in the early 1950s. In 1958 he became Australia's Test captain until his retirement in 1964. He became the first player to reach 200 wickets and 2,000 runs in Test cricket, arriving at that milestone in 1963.
Image

Image
Australia Post's Stamp Bulletin No 363 announced the issue of “World of Sport” on the 4 February 2020 to commemorate the popular sports TV Shows and the commentators. Apart from Benaud, the other $1.10 issues are Rugby league footballer, Reg Gasnier and Les Murray, a well-known football (soccer) communicator. The $2.20 issue shows the Channel Seven AFL “World of Sport” team, a program that was broadcast live in Melbourne from 1959 to 1987. By the end of its run, the show was claimed as the world’s longest running sports program. The stamp shows Lou Richards, a Collingwood Champion, “Captain Blood”, Jack Dyer of Richmond and Bob Davis from Geelong.

The issue included the 4 stamps, FDC, stamp pack, four maximum cards and a Prestige Booklet.

Sports Stadiums Series two

The Sports Stadium Series was issued on the 24th March 2020.

In recent days Australia Post has usually only produced a FDC for the gummed stamps allowing collectors and cover producers to produce their own for the Peel & Stick Stamps.

The Australian Postal Bulletin No 364 showed and image of a FDC for both sets.

Image

Note that both covers show the stamps in a 2X2 format.
Actually only the gummed issue was in that format.

Image

The Peel and stick issue was an inline format.

The only GB issue I collect is the 1973 County Cricket Centenary stamps on FDC issued 16 May.
When it comes to purchasing this issue on cover I am rarely beaten at auction. This time I was hit for six.

I put a sniper bid for GBP 205 (AU$400) for this cover. It sold for GBP 409 (AU$800) on eBay; starting price was GBP 9.99.
I am in the market for this one and can make a good offer if a Stamp Boarder has one. A spotter fee can also be arranged :!:

Just to add a little history here is a cover that I acquired some time back which has a cricketing connection. It is addressed to the Secretary of the Donnington Cricket Club and was posted on 27 June 1852. It is a little stained but I think a nice survivor from an earlier time.

And for another cricket related item, a bazaar card from India showing an unorthodox batting stance. Cawnpore (now Kanpur) to Alwar in October 1905.

Image

Bazaar cards by their nature were printed on cheap card stock and used for general commercial correspondence. The postcard rate was 1/4a which was half the 1/2a letter rate. Generally the condition of these cards is not good and this is an example of that, unfortunately.

For some reasons, most of the time bāzār cards are found creased.

Illustrations on the address side of bāzār cards were permitted only from Apr 1,1905.

https://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?p=6184262#p6184262

The Smith type A24A Kanpur combined datestamp and obliterator with movable hour slugs, was introduced in 1897.

Since this card was addressed to Harsauli (27.8622°N 76.6211°E) inside the territory of the feudatory state of Alwar, now in Alwar district of Rajasthan state, it should have a delivery cds of Harsauli BPO (est. 1889).

Bazaar cards by their nature were printed on cheap card stock and used for general commercial correspondence. Generally the condition of these cards is not good and this is an example of that, unfortunately.
For some reasons, most of the time bāzār cards are found creased.

Illustrations on the address side of bāzār cards were permitted only from Apr 1,1905.

The Smith type A24A Kanpur combined datestamp and obliterator with movable hour slugs, was introduced in 1897.

Since this card was addressed to Harsauli (27.8622°N 76.6211°E) inside the territory of the feudatory state of Alwar, now in Alwar district of Rajasthan state, it should have a delivery cds of Harsauli BPO (est. 1889).
Joy,
You note that illustrations on the address side of bazaar cards were only permitted from 1 April 1905. This is not quite correct as s. 55(1) of Indian Postal Guide 1903 states " Nothing may be written, printed or otherwise impressed on the address side of a postcard except …(e) engravings or advertisements, provided that sufficient space is left for a clear address and for official marks of the Post Office."

Illustrations such as our cricketing ones were engravings that meet the exception and were permitted from 1903 at least.
Collects India to 1947, 1911 Coronation Durbar, British Empire, worldwide postal history, Australia used on cover and anything else interesting. I'll think of something more inspiring one day.

This 1998 Trinidad and Tobago cover has Cricket as its stamp theme, but also lots of interesting Ship (MS Berlin, which stars also in a German Romantic TV Series), Flight, and Nagano Olympic cancels:
