1991 Adelaide Crows Practice Match Football Park

The first Adelaide Crows match at Football Park was commemorated by an overprinted Postage Prepaid Envelope (PPE). A PPE differs from a PSE (Pre-Stamped Envelope) in that it has no value on the stamp area. They are valid for use without additional postage even if the postal rate changes in the future.

Above is printed the original PPE. It was modified in 1997 with better graphics.
