Issue Date: May 5, 2000

Printed By: Ashton-Potter (USA) Ltd

Color: Multicolored
 
This postage stamp, issued by the United States Postal Service, commemorates America’s love of summer sports like baseball, swimming, boating, water skiing, tennis, and golf. By the time spring’s rain unfolds into the long, warm days of summer, fans and athletes are eager to enjoy their favorite events. People young and old participate in and watch sports during this season.
 
American athletes are intense competitors in several summer sports. For example, Carl Lewis holds the record for the most World Track and Field Championship medals won by a man with 10, eight of which were gold. Tennis star Billie-Jean King won a record 20 women’s titles at Wimbledon between 1961 and 1979. The New York Yankees have captured a record 25 World Series titles.
 
This stamp is not connected to the Summer Olympic games which will take place this year from September 15 through October 1 in Sydney, Australia. Every four years, athletes compete in summer sports like volleyball, wrestling, diving, basketball, and track and field. In 1998, after a variety of conflicts, the U.S. Postal Service and the Olympic committee ended their tradition of collaborating on stamps honoring the games. The last stamps issued that featured the Olympic rings were for the Centennial Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia.
