The Four Horsemen stamp was unveiled at the Legends Luncheon on May 19th at the College Football HoF. The stamp is part of the sheet honoring the 1920's being put out by the USPS. Joe Theisman was the featured speaker at the luncheon.

As I said, the Four Horsemen Stamp is part of a 15 stamp sheet honoring the 1920's, so there is no first day issue expected in South Bend for this stamp. Officially first day issue for the stamp sheet will be in Chicago.

I myself will be getting a few of them to get cancelled the weekend of the ND - Army game this year.

The stamps are supposed to be available for purchase by May 28th.

HOW TO ORDER THE FIRST DAY OF ISSUE POSTMARK

Customers have 30 days to obtain the first day of issue postmark by mail. They may
purchase the stamps at their local post office, affix the stamps to envelopes of their
choice, address the envelopes (to themselves or others), and place them into a larger
envelope addressed to:

CELEBRATE THE CENTURY 1920s STAMP
POSTMASTER
433 WEST HARRISON ST FL 2
CHICAGO IL 60607-9991

After applying the first day of issue postmark, the Postal Service returns the
envelopes through the mail. There is no charge for the postmark. All orders must be
postmarked by June 29, 1998. Stamp Fulfillment Services also offers first day
covers for new stamp issues and postal stationery items postmarked with the official
first day of issue cancellation. Each item has an individual catalog number and is
offered in the quarterly USA Philatelic catalog. Customers may request a free
catalog by writing to: INFORMATION FULFILLMENT, U S POSTAL
SERVICE, DEPT 6270, PO BOX 419014, KANSAS CITY MO 64141-6014, or
by calling 1 800 STAMP-24.

First day covers remain on sale for at least one year after the stamps’ issuance.
