Baseball All-Star: Yogi Berra

“You can observe a lot by watching.”—Yogi Berra

Today a stamp commemorating baseball great Yogi Berra was issued by the USPS. Designed by Antonio Alcalá with art by Charles Chaisson and lettering by Michael Doret, the stamp evokes baseball cards and classic lettering for team jerseys while honoring one of the greatest baseball players of all-time.

Now would be a good time to send a “Hello!” through the mail to your favorite baseball fan!

Go For Broke! Japanese American Soldiers of WWII

The “Go for Broke: Japanese American Soldiers of WWII” stamp we designed was issued last week by the USPS. The image is based on a photo from 1944 of a member if the 442nd Regimental Combat Team taken in France. Although many Japanese-Americans faced discrimination in the US, including being confined to domestic concentration camps, 33,000 others served in the army. The 442nd was one of the most distinguished American fighting units of WWII. Their heroism is notable.

We were honored to design this important stamp, and touched by all the notes and messages from members of the Japanese-American community telling us how much this recognition means.
