The Olympic spirit continued into the summer of 1992 with a se-ten that commemorated the world’s most popular sporting event – the Summer Olympics. These action-packed stamps used the same semi-jumbo commemorative format as the 1992 Winter Olympic stamps. Featuring tightly-cropped pictures of five favorite summer events – soccer, women’s gymnastics, volleyball, boxing, and swimming – the stamps sported the Olympic rings to publicize the Postal Service’s sponsorship of the Olympic Games.
