What’s Rob Reading?

Yogi Berra stamps (NEW YORK TIMES)

“With Baseball Stamps, It Ain’t Over Until the Rights Issues Clear”
By Rob Neyer, New York Times

“Not even Yogi Berra was lucky enough to see his own United States Postal Service stamp. Nobody has ever been that lucky. The first U.S. postal stamps were issued in 1847, and in all the years since, no living person has specifically been honored by a depiction on a stamp. And with the exception of American presidents — typically commemorated within a year of their death — there has always been a multiyear period before someone who has died can appear on a stamp. The current waiting period is three years. The process, however, usually takes significantly longer.”
