Autographs on Stamps

Richard Novick of Marlboro, NJ writes to say he recently got a nice surprise from President-Elect Obama - an autograph!

During the campaign, Richard sent both Senators Barack Obama and John McCain a 1950 U.S. 3c stamp showing the White House (Scott 990) in the center of a 3x5-inch white index card along with an autograph request.

Shown above is Obama's autograph which Richard received last month. He still has not heard from McCain.

For 50 years, Richard has been asking famous people to sign stamps which picture them or are otherwise related to their claim to fame.
