A new collection of Forever stamps commemorating Hot Wheels’ 50th anniversary was issued by the U.S. Postal Service this weekend.
A pane of 20 stamps showcasing some of the classic toy car’s most outrageous designs was unveiled at the Goodguys 26th Summit Racing Lone Star Nationals at Texas Motor Speedway, according to the U.S. Postal Service.
This is a first in the history of the Forever stamp, which was first issued in 2007 by the U.S. Postal Service, according to The Stamp Collecting Spot.
The new collection, arranged in diagonal rows, showcase images of 10 Hot Wheels cars along with the name of the vehicle and the iconic toy car’s well-known logo.
“Today, we make history as the Postal Service and our partners at Mattel are celebrating the 50th anniversary of Hot Wheels with these dynamic stamps showcasing the iconic toys that were a part of my childhood and that of my children,” commented U.S. Postal Service marketing vice president, Steve Monteith. “These miniature works of art truly capture the thrill and excitement of these legendary vehicles and now will speed their way as Forever stamps on millions of cards and letters.”
Hot Wheels has produced thousands of varieties of cars since its inception, and was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame in 2011.
