I just read where a new stamp with Arthur Ashe's pic from Sports Illustrated image was issued July 10 2005. Has anyone seen it?

He was a great man who stared down racism and opened many doors.:worship:

Wow, what a great tribute to A.A. The stamp is beautifully designed, too. I'm a huge admirer of Ashe and I will definitely buy some of the stamps when they come out. Thanks for the news, ralphsgal.

I don't mean to sound like a hater, but why did it take so long?
Didn't Sharapova get a stamp ( in Japan) for winning Wimbledon? Not saying she didn't deserve it but...
