2012 Stamp Program: Day 14

Day 14 brings us the first in a series of four stamps commemorating Major League Baseball All-Stars. This stamp is obviously of Joe DiMaggio (1914-1999). DiMaggio was also known by two well known nicknames, Joltin' Joe and The Yankee Clipper. He was a 3 time MVP (Most Valuable Player) and 13 time all-star. He is also known for being the only player who was selected for the all-star game every season he played. And as if that wasn't enough...he took the Yankees to 9 World Series wins!

Basically, DiMaggio was one heck of a ball player. And in my opinion he deserves to be commemorated on a postage stamp.

This stamp (and the others in this series yet to be released) was illustrated by Kadir Nelson.
