Bradley Wiggins Tour de France miniature sheet?

It happened for the England Victory in the Rugby World Cup in 2003 and again for England's Ashes win at cricket over Australia in 2005.  I have to agree with Paul on his blog that this is another great sporting achievement which ranks with those as being deserving of a philatelic commemoration.

And I reckon if they weren't up to their ears in the Olympics, Royal Mail would be working flat out with Getty Images, one of the design agencies, and Walsall Security Printers to have a miniature sheet out in the post offices within the next month, showing Bradley Wiggins and his team-mates.

What do you think?

  1. Definitely agree that Team (Sky) need a special stamp issue. Normally I would be against another set from the Royal Mail.

  2. It also happened on 27-07-67 (SG 751) Sir Francis Chichester's World Voyage on Gypsy Moth IV

    1. Neil, that's very perceptive - and maybe you're showing your age!

      That would also be a precedent.

  3. How about a special post & go label or could be this year’s Stampex P&G commemorative overprint

    1. The word is that the Stampex overprint will be Diamond Jubilee on the flag - but that's an excellent idea and I will pass it on!
