Allen & Ginter Stamps

I was in the post office a few weeks ago mailing some baseball cards out, and I noticed something very interesting. Normally, I don't pay any attention to the stamps that the post office is selling since I just use their automated machine and then get the heck out of there. But that day I had to go to the counter since I was mailing some cards to Australia (yes, there are baseball card collector's down under!), and a set of their stamps caught my eye. They are called "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" stamps and they picture a baseball player from the 1800's. Kind of reminds me of the original Allen & Ginter cards. The stamps look really nice, so I picked up a sheet of them. If you haven't seen them yet, I posted a scan of them below.
