It was a difficult choice for me for this week's Sunday Stamps Sports theme. The deicison I faced was between the 1966 World Cup stamps, or the 1948 Olympic Games stamps. Given that it's Olympic year again this year, I have opted for the latter. As with all stamps of this era, the colours are muted and understated, but I actually like this more low-key approach, with the brown 1 shilling stamp being my favourite of the four. Given the current state of the worldwide economies, I thought it was also fitting that these games are also referred to as the Austerity Olympics.
