Nadia Comăneci Maximum Card
on Pre-Stamped Post Card

Maximum Card
Nadia Comăneci commemorative on a maximum card depicting the Olympic gymnast.

Is it possible to exceed the maximum? A maximum card is usually a picture postcard bearing a stamp and a postmark relevant to the picture. The design on the stamp usually mirrors that on the postcard and the stamp is usually places the picture-side of the card. In this case, the two pictures on the front of the card (stamp and postcard image) are complimented by the design on the pre-stamped postcard which also depicts Nadia Comăneci

Nadia Elena Comăneci Commemorative
This is the high value in a set of seven stamps issued on October 20, 1976
(plus a souvenir sheet) honouring Roumanian medalists at the Montreal Olympics .

The "1.00" depicted on the stamp reflects the fact that the score clock could not display a perfect score of 10 which Comăneci earned seven times during the games. Instead, a score of 1.00 was displayed.

Nadia Comăneci Pre-stamped Post Card
The maximum card was made using a pre-stamped post card depicting Nadia Comăneci.

The caption at the bottom left hand side of the post card notes that Nadia Comăneci won seven marks of ten resulting in three gold medals, a silver and a bronze at the Montreal Olympics in 1976.
