Ted Williams is the fourth baseball great who will be honored with a commemorative Forever stamps set.
Joining Joe DiMaggio, Larry Doby and Willie Stargell, Williams is part of an initiative by the United States Postal Service to try to bring back stamp collecting, and MLB is part of the initiative with an All-Stars collection. DiMaggio, Doby and Stargell had their stamps previewed earlier this summer, with Williams unveiled on Friday.
"I am incredibly proud and honored to have the U.S. Postal Service commemorate my father in such a beautiful and lasting way," Williams' daughter, Claudia, said. "Dad would be completely humbled to know he was chosen to represent the U.S. in this way. His love and commitment to this great country is well-known, having served in the US Marine Corps during two wars, and performing at the highest level playing America's pastime. The artwork captures all the grace and determination of his best swing."
