According to the USPS website, the stamps will be available nationwide June 14 but can be pre-ordered online now. The First Class Forever stamps depict balls used in baseball, basketball, football, golf, kickball, soccer, tennis and volleyball.
A special coating applied to selected areas of the stamps during the printing process gives them a texture that mimics the feel of a:
- baseball’s stitching;
- golf ball’s dimples;
- tennis ball’s seams;
- soccer ball or volleyball’s textured panels; and,
- the different raised patterns of a football, basketball and kickball.
