In postage stamps, that is. Earlier this year the Postal Service unveiled their Major League Baseball All-Stars Forever stamps featuring Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio, Larry Doby and Willie Stargell. They decided to keep track of stamp sales as a little competition. For most of the summer it was Williams and DiMaggio in the lead, but:
Despite coming in third in the pre-sale that was conducted before the stamps were issued, the Postal Service ended up selling 8,220,355 Stargell stamps. Williams was second with 8,209,035 and DiMaggio’s stamp was 8,065,855. Doby finished fourth with 7,844,015.
Voter fraud, I’m sure of it. Everyone on TV tells me it’s rampant!
Not sure who’s buying stamps anyway. How much stuff do you actually mail? I bought a sheet of Christmas stamps last year to send out a couple of random cards. I still have a bunch of them.
