USPS to Honor Latin Baseball

Just saw the latest Linn’s Stamp News. It indicates that the U.S. Postal Service is set to honor Latin Baseball with stamp issued either in mid-2014 or possibly in 2015. No details are available yet, but these stamps generally are a pane of four with pictures of four different Latin ball players (Clemente, DiHigo, etc) in uniform. Sometimes it will be a generic picture of a game (like the Negro League set) honoring a specific group. No idea which, if either, they’ll pick. Will let you know when I find out.

    Well, you know what I’m gonna say here, V, because I’ve said it before about my favorite player who I never saw play (along with Dom DiMaggio, my father’s favorite, and a few others, of course.)

    And that is that I hope they don’t ignore Minnie Minoso on the stamps the way they seem to be ignoring him for the Hall Of Fame.

    However, I’m sure that they WILL ignore Minoso. Minoso appears to be like Rodney Dangerfield, in that he gets no respect.

    Oh, yeah, that’s right. Well, in that case, let’s be glad that he won’t be on one of the stamps!
