Happiness Is A Bat Stamp

Back when US postage stamps cost 37 cents, the Post Office  issued the most awesome stamps ever. Bat Stamps!

I bought reams of them!  I used them on all my mail and I gave them as gifts.

The gift recipients were always a bit taken aback…

Nothing made me happier than a bat stamp.

But I’ll let you judge for yourself….

Perhaps beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But I’m still bummed that I can’t buy bat stamps anymore. They always made my day…

    I love bats, too! If I’d seen these when they were out, I’d have bought them.

    I wish I had friends who gave me bat stamps! Those are pretty cool. If the postal service wants to do a remix with Christian Bale Batman stamps, those would be equally hot… ahem… cool, too.

    I also love bat stamps, and just found them again on eBay. There were a couple of stacks for sale.
