COVID Card 70

July 14, 2020 | 0 comments

In 1993, the USPS invited the public to vote for a commemorative stamp design for the first time. The contest? Young Elvis or less-young Elvis. Youth won and the 1993 commemorative Elvis stamp remains the best-selling commemorative stamp of all time (in the US).

To honor The King, card 70 features a pick guard from one of Elvis’s guitars, a couple of horn shapes from the famous Jungle Room, and a ukulele string motif (a nod to Blue Hawaii, I suppose; the real story is even less interesting).

Cards 1-100

The United States Postal Service has been hit hard by the pandemic. Controlling elements of the Federal Government (the president and Republican Senate) do not want to provide aid to the service. So, it’s up to us. It may seem insignificant, but if we all sent just a few letters a week, we could help ensure that our daily, free mail delivery service continues. For the past (see the card number above) days, I have drawn a card each day and mailed it to someone the next day (none are sent on Sundays; two are sent on Mondays). Please consider mailing cards and letters while we still can for 55 cents (first class letter postage). If the USPS fails, you could find it costs $8 or more to send a letter. And that’s just one of the ways we will all lose if the USPS shuts down.
