About Stamp

On July 21 2012, in Boston, Massachusetts, the Postal Service will issue a Major League Baseball All-Stars: Ted Williams commemorative stamp (Forever priced at 45 cents) in one design in a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) pane of 20 stamps. The stamp will go on sale in Boston July 21, 2012.

With the issuance of the Ted Williams stamp, the U.S. Postal Service recog­nizes one of the greatest hitters in Major League Baseball history. Ted Williams (1918-2002) of the Boston Red Sox was the last Major League player to bat over .400 for a single season (1941). During his stellar career, he won six American League batting titles and four home run titles. Today, “the Kid” is regarded as one of the all-time greatest hitters in Major League Baseball history. The stamp art, based on historic photographs, shows Wil­liams at bat.

About Stamp Series

On July 20, 2012, in Cooperstown, New York, the Postal Service™ will issue Major League Baseball All-Stars com­memorative stamps (Forever® priced at 45 cents) in four designs in a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) pane of 20 stamps. The stamps will go on sale nationwide July 20, 2012.

The four players honored on these stamps capture our imagination for their exploits and for what they symbolize — the best of baseball — and, in a way, the best of ourselves. In 2012, the Postal Service salutes Joe DiMaggio, Larry Doby, Willie Stargell, and Ted Williams. Each of these Hall of Famers was a perennial All-Star selection and each left an indelible impression on the game.

Artist Kadir Nelson based his artwork on historic photographs of the four players. Art director Phil Jordan designed the stamps.

The Major League Baseball All-Stars stamps are being issued as Forever® stamps. Forever stamps are always equal in value to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce rate.
