Description

A perfect gift for Toronto Argonauts fans! While supplies last!

The Toronto Argonauts* have a storied franchise past that has much to contribute to the 100th Grey Cup® celebrations. The Grey Cup of 1950 —the Mud Bowl— is a legendary game known as much for the field conditions as for the players. Snow, rain and attempts to clear the field with heavy equipment created a muddy mess. Toronto and Winnipeg players had great difficulty overcoming the water-soaked field conditions, and in the end, Toronto took the Grey Cup 13-0, the last shutout in a championship game.

Your 25-cent commemorative coin also salutes Toronto’s 15 Grey Cup victories in 21 appearances that began in 1911.

If you are a Toronto Argonauts fan, or know someone who is, then this coin and stamp set is a perfect gift!
