Help Put Ted On A Stamp!

Would you like to be part of Baseball History?

For some 5 years the BoSox Club has been working on the task of requesting the U.S. Post Office to issue commemorative stamps in honor of Ted Williams as a tribute to his memory. Having served in two wars and having achieved the admiration of many Americans, we feel that Ted should be honored as a great man for his work in the Marines, for the Jimmy Fund and his induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

As you may know this has been done for such players as Ruth, Mantle, Clemente and a few others. The original postal regulations stated that they could not issue any stamps in Ted's honor until the 10th anniversary of his passing, July 5th 2012, and that date is our target.

The Bosox Club has the support of the Williams family and the Boston Red Sox. However, we need the support of as many citizens as possible from around the world in this endeavor. Please contact your friends, relatives, associates, politicians and anybody you think can help us out, especially those outside New England. Letters in support of this proposal need to be written now to;

Citizens Stamp Advisory Committee, c/o Stamp Development, United States Postal Service, 475 L'Enfant Plaza SW, Room 5670, Washington, DC 20260-3500

Please email the Club here if you've joined the effort!
