2021 Yogi Berra
This Yogi Berra forever baseball postage stamp was printed in panes of 20 from the USPS that honor the Hall of Fame catcher from the New York Yankees. They are under the Major League Baseball All-Star header.
Honoring Yogi Berra (1925-2015), this stamp salutes one of the best and most celebrated baseball players of his era, winning a record 10 World Series with the New York Yankees. The stamp art is an original digital portrait of Berra dressed in his Yankees cap, pinstripes and catcher’s chest protector. Considered the best catcher in the American League in the 1950s, he was also a feared hitter, and in 1972 was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
Antonio Alcalá was the art director and stamp designer. Charles Chaisson was the artist. The “Yogi Berra” lettering was created by Michael Doret.
A total of 25,000,000 stamps were issued at 55¢ for a total value of $13,750,000. (Stamp ID# Scott 5608).
