The Red Sox season is over, but fans have a new pasttime: an organized push to put Teddy Ballgame on a U.S. postage stamp.
The U.S. Postal Service has been actively putting former sports stars on postage stamps lately. A series of Baseball Hall of Famers came out just a couple of years ago.
But there is a move afoot in New England to get a player his own stamp thanks not only to his baseball prowess but also his support of other old-timers, charities and his service to the nation during war time.
Williams hasn’t been dead ten years which is one reason why we haven’t seen his image yet, but just in case anyone in Washington forgets, the Bosox Club, official booster organization of the Red Sox, has been trumpteting the effort to get Williams on a stamp when he’s eligible.
They’re asking baseball fans and collectors to take up the cause.
