US Postal Service Unveils Black Vintage Cinema Stamps


I absolutely LOVE Vintage Black Cinema (It's something so elegant about the imagery in those flicks) so I'm excited to report to you that the United States Postal Service has issues five stamps depicting Black Cinema posters from 1920-1950!
Run, don't walk to pick up yours! I'm planning to purchase First-Day Covers and send Mom a set with the First Date of Issue postmark.
Since this is the year of the so-called 'Stay-cation,' it may be a good idea to stroll down to your Central Headquarters of the US Postal Service for an interesting history lesson (especially if you have kids).
Who knows? Stamp collecting may become a family hobby.
Maybe it's the mush-ball in me, but I think we tend to take the Postal Service for granted in the US - particularly when it comes to the Black historical stamps series.
Special shout out Super Sister Delores Killette, Vice President and Consumer Advocate of the USPS and her entire team for a job well done.
Now maybe we can put those stupid Internet rumors to rest about the elimination of the Black historical series of stamps!
