Pretty neat. Too bad no one uses the mail anymore.

    guess I’m old school then. I still use em.

    I still mail in payments to the power, gas, water and insurance companies. But I’ll be damned if I’m going to waste those gorgeous stamps on them. I still haven’t used any of my thirty seven cent James Baldwins.

    We need some great managers too. Casey, Yogi, Earl….maybe Slobbering Ozzie in a red beret with a Nike swatch on it….

      Yogi is a managerial great?

      • Old Gator - Jul 20, 2012 at 5:06 PM

        Well no, but he is Yogi….

    I was thinking about paying my bills via US Mail. This clinches it.

    If anyone deserves a stamp, it’s the San Diego chicken.

    It’s personally alarming that I saw Willie Stargell play, and he’s been dead long enough for a stamp.

      Tell us what Babe Ruth was like Hojo. You probably remember when penny candy was truly a penny too?

    Now those are some cool stamps. In my opinion, America does the best stamps. Us Canadians do the best hockey fights, comedy, and beavers, but you Americans beat us with your stamps. Of course among the rarest and possibly most coveted stamp in the world is the initialed, one cent octagonal Black/Magenta (the owner of which, the current du Pont heir, has quite a story. You’d think I was making this stuff up, but seriously, google that one). Since it and I hail from the same country its something I take a certain amount of passive pride in (du Pont’s crimes notwithstanding). Nevertheless American stamps do a wonderful job of American history and these baseball editions are beautiful.

      I had no idea Richard Pryor, Mitch Hedberg, and Stimpy were Canadian.

        He’s like a zoo chimp, this dirtyharry. Comfortable behind bars and only trick he knows is to fling his poo. Carry on ‘harry. I’m sure the peanuts you make are worth it.

    Mail takes too long and is lame.

  8. mclovinhockey - Jul 20, 2012 at 1:39 PM

    So you just copy and paste this on the top of your emails ; )

  9. mybrunoblog - Jul 20, 2012 at 1:44 PM

    Those are some awesome looking stamps.

    I bought a new suit a few days ago and when they asked me for my address they looked at me funny when I didnt start with numbers.

  11. Chipmaker - Jul 20, 2012 at 2:47 PM

    Nifty, but they would have been better with nicknames added. “The Kid”, “Joltin’ Joe”, “Pops” — hmm, did Doby have a popular nickname? BR.com doesn’t list one. Shucks, there goes that idea.

  12. pellypell - Jul 20, 2012 at 3:18 PM

    The planned on releasing one with the entire Yankees team, but Sox fans couldn’t figure out what side to spit on.

  13. foreverchipper10 - Jul 20, 2012 at 5:21 PM

    Are they forever stamps or not? What is that strikethrough looking thing? This is so confusing.

    • Old Gator - Jul 20, 2012 at 6:19 PM

      It’s to keep folks from copying the advertising images and using them as real stamps.

  14. dirtyharry1971 - Jul 21, 2012 at 2:00 AM

    larry Doby stamp? Come on most fans dont even know who he was for crying out loud!! We should replace him with the most famous bluejay of all time!!! Um lets see… Willie Upshaw maybe?
