Postal Service to release Wilt Chamberlain stamps
Here's the Philadelphia Daily News reporting on the late, great Wilt Chamberlain:
It was a tall order, but the U.S. Postal Service was up to the task.
Yesterday, it unveiled the images of two Wilt Chamberlain forever stamps, one of him as a Philadelphia Warrior and the other as a Los Angeles Laker.
The stamps are long and lean, just like the Big Dipper in his prime. At just over 2 inches in length, they are one-third larger than most commemoratives.
The U.S. Postal Service and the Sixers, along with the NBA, will formally dedicate the stamps and show a tribute video during halftime of the Sixers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder game on Friday, Dec. 5, at the Wells Fargo Center. Tickets will be available to the general public beginning Wednesday on Sixers.com.
