Paying Bills Just Got Game
The U.S. Postal Service has released first-of-a-kind stamp collection with the look — and feel — of actual balls used in eight popular sports. Available nationwide now, the Have a Ball! 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.
News about the stamps is being shared on social media under the hashtag #Haveaballstamps.
