All-Stars Stamps Eclipse 1 million in Advanced Sales

St. Louis' KSDK.TV reports, "Voting for this year's Major League Baseball All-Star team has closed. But 'votes'-a.k.a. Stamps Batted In (SBI) for the four legends who collectively appeared in nearly 50 All-Star games-have exceeded one million in the Major League Baseball All-Stars Forever stamps pre-stamp dedication pennant race."

According to reporter Kevin Held, "Leading by a close margin is Boston Red Sox Ted Williams, hitting 300,385 SBI, followed by New York Yankee Joe DiMaggio at 290,925. There's still time for fans of Pittsburgh Pirate Willie Stargell with 237,785 SBI and Cleveland Indian Larry Doby hitting 232,745 to catch up before the July 21-22 official dedication ceremonies. Fans can still pump up the SBI by visiting"

USPA Stamp Services Manager Stephen Kearney is quoted in the article as saying, "Kearney said that individual player stamp sheets will be sold only in limited quantities beginning July 21 at select Post Offices in Boston, MA; Cleveland, OH; Cooperstown, NY; New York, NY, and Pittsburgh, PA. To ensure customers obtain all the individual player sheets and related philatelic products, he recommended ordering them between now and Aug. 31"
