First Day Cover / Stamp: Babe Ruth

Plate Block, Babe Ruth Stamps 
Issuance: July 6, 1983
I'm a lifelong baseball fan. I remember being so excited when the very first Babe Ruth stamp was issued. The issuance coincided with the 50th anniversary of MLB's All-Star game in 1983. The All-Star game was held on July 6, 1983 at Comiskey Park in Chicago, IL.

The above First Day Cover is an envelope that bears the Babe Ruth stamp, which was canceled on July 6, 1983 in Chicago. It features a Fleetwood cachet on the front, and biographical information on the back.
