Batman Stamp In The Mail

Above, the Golden Age Batman stamp.

Celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Caped Crusader, the United States Postal Service issued commemorative postage stamps honoring Batman last year.

The stamps depict Batman in four different "ages": the Golden Age, the Silver Age, the Bronze Age and the Modern (or current) Age. The Bronze Age Batman stamp is by Neal Adams.

The set of stamps has met with some mixed reviews from stamp collectors. Some called the issuing of the stamps "cheapening" stamp collecting.

The reason I am posting this is that I received a piece of mail yesterday that had the Golden Age Batman postage stamp. To be honest, I liked it and will keep it.

The USPS Batman stamps look a lot better and more representative than the Canadian Superman stamps that were issued two years ago without a Curt Swan version of the Man of Steel. Unconscionable!
