An opium smuggler, seal hunter, oyster pirate, and Klondike miner, Jack London had many colorful experiences upon which to base his books. Many of his stories and novels were autobiographical, drawn from his adventures as a miner in the Alaskan gold rush. He achieved instant success with his novel "Call of the Wild" and became the highest paid, most-popular writer of his day. London is pictured on the 25¢ Great Americans stamp.
 
Issued between 1980 and 1999, the Great Americans definitive series features 63 designs, making it the largest set of face different Regular Issue stamps issued in the 20th century. One stamp honors a couple (Lila and Dewitt Wallace) while the remaining 62 commemorate individuals.
 
The series is characterized by a standard definitive size, simple design and monochromatic colors. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing produced most of the stamps, but some were printed by private firms. Several stamps saw multiple printings. The result is many different varieties, with tagging being the key to understanding them.
