Australia Post - Australian Legends Football

Australian Legends Football
Australia Post
8 postcards (2 football)

In 2012 Australia Post issued a set of 8 stamps featuring Australian football legends. As is usual these days a number of other collectables were issued at the same time, including a set of postcards, or maxi-cards as they are called. I've shown the Mark Schwarzer maxi-card with the stamp attached to the front, but I've been unable to find a photo of the Joe Marston maxi-card so I've had to make do with just the stamp.
Joe Marston MBE was the first Australian to play in an F.A. Cup Final when Preston North End lost to West Bromwich Albion in 1954.
