Little Mo USPS Forever Stamp Honors Tennis Champ Maureen Connolly Brinker
The Little Mo USPS Forever Stamp Honors 1950s Tennis Champ Maureen Connolly Brinker.
While stopping by my Post Office today, I was able to pick up a sheet of them. The First Day of Issue (FDOI) Stamp Ceremony was yesterday in Dallas at SMU.
“In the early 1950s, the 5-foot-4-inch dynamo dominated her sport. Nicknamed “Little Mo,” she used powerful groundstrokes to become the first woman to win all four major tennis tournaments in a calendar year.”
The sheet of 20 First-Class Forever stamps, at 55 cents each, is $11.00. It is also available online at the USPS Postal Store #LittleMo.
I’m including this link to the First Day of Issue Stamp Ceremony from yesterday.
