Baseball Sluggers Stamps

I don’t actively collect stamps, but when there are cool baseball issues, I’ll usually try and go out of my way to pick some up. In 2005, the USPS issued a “Baseball Sluggers” set of stamps, featuring four stars from the past: Mickey Mantle, Roy Campanella, Mel Ott, and Hank Greenberg. I definitely bought these at the time because of Mantle, but the other three guys are pretty damn good too. 

I’m in the process of packing for a move across the river (as mentioned in my last post), so I found these stamps in a box in my closet. I had forgotten I had them. The sheet is still in pretty good shape, and I’m glad I held onto them.


  1. Nice find. They look a little bit like one of them old Bowman sets.

    1. Also, apparently I talk like an old hillbilly now.

  2. Very cool- Vintage Bowman is the first thing I thought of too.

  3. I'm pretty sure I read that somewhere that the USPS is about to release some more baseball player stamps.
