The Hamilton Tiger-Cats are coming to postcards and envelopes across the country.

Canada Post unveiled a series of commemorative 100th Grey Cup Game stamps Monday afternoon. It features nine stamps, eight of which depict an iconic moment or game chosen by a Canadian Football League team.

The Tiger-Cats stamp shows an image from 1972 at Ivor Wynne Stadium. It was the 60th Grey Cup and the Tiger-Cats played the Saskatchwan Roughriders.

Tied late in the fourth quarter, Hamilton's 19-year-old kicker Ian Sunter hit a 34-yard field goal as time expired. The crowd went wild.

The game was the last of Angelo Mosca's career. Garney Henley won the 1972 Schenley Award for the CFL's most valuable player.

The stamps are available at post offices starting Aug. 16.

"Nothing brings Canadians together quite like the Grey Cup," said Mark Cohon, commissioner of the Canadian Football League.
