The Greatest FA Cup Moments feature on Jersey Stamps
A commemorative souvenir miniature sheet includes the Island’s very own Jersey Bulls during their debut FA Cup run during the 2021/22 season.
To celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the FA Cup final, Jersey Post will issue a set of 8 commemorative stamps highlighting great FA Cup moments throughout the history of the competition. ‘Roy of the Rovers’ comic artist David Sque has illustrated the series of classic moments across a range of philatelic products, including a miniature sheet depicting the very first FA Cup final in 1872 and a souvenir miniature sheet that portrays the Island’s very own Jersey Bulls during their debut FA Cup run during the 2021/22 season.
Stamp illustrator David Sque says of the issue: “I have been involved with illustrating football most of my career and I am probably best known for drawing England’s famous national football comic hero: ‘Roy of the Rovers’. I was both honoured and humbled when Jersey Post kindly commissioned me to illustrate a series of postage stamps together with various further illustrations connected with the issue.
Who could forget this iconic moment?!
Also available is a prestige stamp booklet designed in a comic-book style, featuring further great FA Cup moments, and including five exclusive panes of stamps. A must for any football fanatic.
