Stamp honors Yogi Berra

USPS will release its stamp honoring Yogi Berra, one of the best catchers and overall players in Major League Baseball (MLB), on Thursday, June 24.

Berra (1925-2015) won three American League Most Valuable Player awards and was an 18-time MLB All-Star during his career.

Beloved by baseball fans, he won a record 10 World Series with the New York Yankees and was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

Berra, considered one of the best catchers in the American League in the 1950s, was also a powerful hitter.

He averaged better than .300 four times — finishing with a .285 lifetime batting average — knocking in 100 runs five times and hitting 358 home runs.

Antonio Alcalá designed the Yogi Berra stamp with original art by Charles Chaisson.

The Forever stamp will be available in panes of 20 at Post Offices and usps.com.
