We can admit to excitedly buying up some of the US Snowboard stamps when they were released (seriously, order stickers, you’ll get one), so we should be no less excited by Torah Bright’s own postage stamp, other than the fact it’s for mailing stuff in Australia. And who knows how much $.55 Aussie cents is even worth here in the good old USA?
The stamp features Torah at the medal presentation ceremony in Vancouver, holding her gold medal proudly, her name and the event she competed in, the Australian Olympic Team logo and a graphic representation of the Canadian Alps in the background. “We are confident the Australian public will join us in celebrating Torah victory in Vancouver and we expect to see strong demand for the stamps”, Australia Post’s Group Manager of Philatelic, Mr Noel Leahy added.
Looks like if you want to support Australian Olympic athletes, or just are a nerdy stamp collector, you can mail order these bad boys at 1800 331 794 or online at www.auspost.com.au/stamps while supplies last, of course.
