Back to back Premierships 1998

1998 saw the Crows win their second and back to back  Premierships. They defeated the more fancied North Melbourne despite the fact that the Kangaroos dominated the first half with 21 scoring shots to 7 but failed to put the Crows away due to inaccurate kicking. The Crows dominated the second half to win by 35 points

Australia Post released a special postmark (PM 2094) and overprinted "Aboriginal Art" PSE to commemorate the historic win. 20,000 were cancelled.
