The United States Postal Service announced on Monday that a brand new stamp in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of Joe DiMaggio's 56 game hitting streak.
The stamps will be released in 2012 as part of an All-Star series. Three other unnamed players will also receive the honor. The stamp is the first bearing DiMaggio's likeness and was called "long overdue" by a USPS spokesman.
