Team of the Century and Hall of Fame

Team of the Century
At a Gala Dinner on the !4th June 1997, Collingwood named its own Team of the Century.

It contained only one present day player, namely Nathan Buckley, on the Half Back Flank, but it did include their penultimate  coach, Tony Shaw on the Interchange Bench. Bob Rose who appeared in the Collingwood Centenary Stamp Booklet was named in the centre.

The occasion was marked by the release of 60 covers with the Team of the Century and cancelled with the Magpies Postmark.
