Buster's First Day Cover

Popping in today with a "first day cover" of our hero, Buster Keaton. In case you don't know, a first day cover is a collectible so to speak. It is issued the first day a new postage stamp (or series of stamps) is released. It is usually an envelope or postcard with the stamp (cancelled) and some coordinating text or artwork. You can "Goggle" it for more detailed info and examples.

This is original art by me; my vision of a BK postage stamp and what the first day cover would look like. Disclaimer: the envelope and stamp below are totally made up, fake, false, bogus, have nothing to do with the USPS...

Kind of cool what one can do with printers, rubber stamps, and a little creativity.
