The Pictorial Postmark National Baseball Hall of Fame part of celebrating Induction Day 2017 was held earlier today.
The really nice thing is you too can still get one of these by sending off for one within the next 30 days.
If the image being shown looks familiar, it was just last October during the World Series I wrote about Cooperstown Pfister MLB Draft Correspondence; it included the 2016 Induction Day Picture Postmark.
Customers wishing to obtain a postmark should affix First-Class Mail postage to any envelope or postcard, address the envelope or postcard and tuck in the flap. Place the envelope or postcard in a larger envelope … After applying the pictorial postmark, the Postal Service returns the items under an addressed protective cover.”
This is the address for sending off.

This free event with the USPS held adds a special keepsake to the attendee’s experience.
Join me tomorrow as we wrap up the month of July with my monthly recap of all the daily blog posts.
