1. Rough stamp

New Zealand's All Blacks, one of the more storied and recognizable rugby organizations in the world, is being honored with a one-of-a-kind stamp from New Zealand Post, one made with real fabric from the team's Adidas jerseys.

The stamp is now available worldwide and you can learn more about it here.

2. David Feldman sale exceeds expectations
