Highlighting the collage is an authentic First Day Cover of the stamp issued to honor the issued to honor the Boy Scouts as part of the celebration of International Youth Year issued in 1985. Overall, a great collectible for any Boy Scout.What is a “First Day Cover Collectible”?When the US Post Office issues a new stamp it selects the date it will be released and the city that it will be placed on sale first. Usually, both the date and location of issuance is connected to the stamp’s subject. For example, the Post Office issued the Elvis Presley stamp in Memphis, Tennessee where Graceland is located. The date of issuance was January 8, 1993, the King’s birthday. On the first day, collectors submitted specially designed envelopes to the Postmaster in Memphis and got them stamped “First Day of Issue” to create a collectible. The size of this matted picture is 8" x 10" and will fit any 8" x 10" inch frame. (a standard size). I make all these collages by hand. As a history buff as well as a lover of old movies and all types of sports, the key to each picture is the research behind it. Deciding what movies should go with a particular star or what game or series would best reflect a certain sports hero is crucial to a successful collage. I then design each picture individually and lay out the design on the mat. Finally, I cut each mat based on that design and assemble the collage. Shipping and Handling is free for the United States.
