The U.S. Postal Service has been recognizing the value of Black achievement since 1940 with these stamps. You'll recognize the value of this superb collection for years to come.
The oversized collector's cards that house the stamps are beautifully designed, sturdy, heavyweight folios, each with a large vintage photo on the front and a privately commissioned biography on the reverse. They reveal the inspiring stories of the individuals behind the stamps who broke the color barrier, the records and the rules. An invaluable way for young and old to learn about and embrace their heritage, this collection is truly destined to be a treasured family heirloom.
Despite the fact that many of the stamps in the Complete Collection of Black American Stamps have been out of circulation for years, the persistent efforts of the Black Heritage Commemorative Society have located all of them in pristine condition - including the first one ever issued, the Booker T. Washington stamp from 1940. Not many of these remain, and they will be available only as long as supplies last. When they're gone, these key markers of Black American achievement will be gone forever.
