Can anyone tell me how the Canada Post NHL Legends Hockey Cards were packaged? Did the cards come in a special plastic folder or packaged just like regular hockey cards?

Thanks

If you mean the ones with the stamp on one side, they came in foil packs. They were produced for 4 or 5 years and there were auto'd versions each year (I believe) randomly inserted.

Found this for 2004, not sure if all years were the same or not, but 6 sounds about right:

Another new release for 2004 was All-Star Stamp Cards (item number 341635). These were the same size as standard hockey cards and all six NHL All-Stars were featured in a pack of six cards. There were 17,000 packs produced and as a bonus, one in ten packs featured an autographed card. The cost of one pack was $9.99

Prior to issuing the hockey cards in foil packs, Canada Post also issued slightly larger "cards" in a type of plastic folder. These were larger than standard sized cards and had a laminated stamp and picture of the player. Not sure if they fit into anyone's definition of cards but I thought I'd add it to the discussion.

Myself, I liked the stamp and coin sets the best.

I have found out that there maybe two sets of Canada Post Hockey Cards. One set from 2000 to 2002, six cards for each year, that came in special plastic folders and the other set issue by Pacific on behalf of Canada Post starting in 2003, 2004 & 2005 comprising of 36 total cards, six per pack, in foil wrap. Twenty four differnt cards issued in 2003, six different cards in 2004 and six different cards in 2005 for a total of 36.
It looks like Canada Post stopped the special pastic folders in 2002 and went with the conventional foil wrap packs in 2003.
Can anyone help confirm the two diffent sets of cards?

Thanks
