2008 USPS Premier Postage
While surfing around the USPS site, looking to scarf up some of the cool "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" items they have, I ran across these and knew I had to have them. Each one measures about 6" x 8" or so and features the player pictured on a 42-cent postage stamp. The remainder (majority) of the 'frame' is the team name, player name, a large photo of the player with player's number. In the lower right corner in a black 'swoosh' is the player's position and team logo. According to the back, there are 36 players in all. http://www.premierpostage.com/
I bought the two Indians I could find: Grady Sizemore and C.C. Sabathia. The picture of Sizemore sliding into base is very cool, while Sabathia looks down with his usual menacing pose. They very cool oddball items for my Tribe collection.
