On today’s date in 1990, Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Dave Stieb pitched a no-hitter, leading his team to a 3-0 victory over the Cleveland Indians.
Stieb had lost three no-hit bids with one out to go in the previous two seasons. His feat was the ninth no-hitter of the 1990 season; however, it was the first and only no-hitter in Blue Jays franchise history.
In 2001, Canada Post featured the Blue Jays logo on a 47-cent multi-coloured stamp (Scott # 1901) printed by Ashton-Potter Canada Ltd. on self-adhesive paper. Designed by Paul Haslip, of Toronto, the stamp depicts a special Blue Jays logo to commemorate the club’s 25th anniversary. Haslip replaced the illustrated baseball with a three-dimensional ball and rendered the words “Canada 47” to look like a player’s autograph.
