The focus, determination, strength, integrity, individuality and pride of Fergie Jenkins and Carrie Best are
the attributes we aspired to bring to these stamps. The design balances a more recent depiction of each of
these outstanding Canadians with an image of their active lives of the past: Fergie Jenkins as a gifted baseball
pitcher and Carrie Best as a newspaper editor and human rights activist.
