Item details

The US Postal Service honored Joe Louis (1914-1981) with a 29-cent commemorative stamp issued on June 22, 1993, at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan. This issuance marked the 55th anniversary of the 1938 Louis-Schmeling rematch, in which Louis knocked-out Germany's Max Schmeling in the first round. Fought under the shadow of Hitler's march into Europe, the fight took on the broader symbolic significance of democracy against fascism.

The stamp is based on a classic photograph of the chap: Louis, in a boxer's stance, has his fists held high, ready for action. This stamp was the first US postage stamp to commemorate the sport of boxing.

(Postal Bulletin: June 10, 1993)

The stamps are excellent for stamp collectors, art work creators, jewelry makers, scrapbookers, and teachers for use with unit studies. They also can be used for invitations and other correspondence as long as additional postage is used with them.

Denomination: 29 cents
Issue Date: 1993
Description: Unused and in Mint condition, never hinged. PLEASE NOTE: one stamp has a small brown dot on the back (see picture); it is NOT on the stamps that comprise the plate block.
