Stamp Set Commemorates:

A. Philip Randolph – The twelfth stamp in the Black Heritage Series honors A. Philip Randolph, a respected and outspoken proponent of the rights of minority labor.  He was greatly feared by his opponents, not because of his temperament, but because of his power to create change.  He was named vice president of the AFL-CIO in 1957.

World Stamp Expo – The stamp commemorating World Stamp Expo ‘89, during the 20th Universal Postal Union Congress, recreates the classic 1869 90¢ Abraham Lincoln stamp.  The UPU Congress was last held in the U.S. in 1897, with 56 countries participating.  In 1989, the UPU was composed of 169 member nations, with over 1,000 delegates.

Lou Gehrig – Baseball’s “Iron Horse,” Lou Gehrig played an amazing 2,130 consecutive games for the New York Yankees, a record five years longer than that of his nearest rival.  When he was finally forced from the line-up, it was due to the illness that now bears his name.

Dinosaurs – 25¢:  A pre-historic dimension was added to stamp collecting when the Postal Service issued a block of four Dinosaur stamps.  They were issued on October 1st, to coincide with the beginning of National Stamp Collecting Month.  The vividly colored stamps feature four of the more well known dinosaurs.  The predatory tyrannosaurus rex is frozen in the act of hunting out his daily meal.  The winged pteranodon soars high overhead.  The stegosaurus is ambling up a landscape as rough and uneven as his armor plating.  The gentle vegetarian brontosaurus, meaning thunder lizard, was named for its gigantic size.

America Issue – Members of the Postal Union of the Americas and Spain (PUAS) joined to dedicate an international series of stamps.  The series was designed to familiarize the people of the member nations with one another.  The first issues honor the Native Americans who existed prior to Columbus’ arrival in the New World.  The carved figure on the stamp is from the Mimbres, a Southwest Indian culture.

Christmas – The contemporary Christmas stamp features an antique toy sleigh, brimming with brightly wrapped presents.  Issued in both booklet and sheet form, this is the first time a U.S. stamp has been printed by two different institutions.  The Bureau of Engraving and Printing produced the booklet.  The American Bank Note Company produced the sheet.
