Yoda Postage Stamps: Missed These When They Came out, I Did

 |  |  |  February 2, 2013

With the advent of E-mail and online bill payment, I don’t find myself buying postal stamps very often. But I guess I should at least keep track of what sort of collectible stamps are being made, since I’ve managed to miss out on some cool designs over the years. For example, back in 2007, the US Post Office issued this cool Yoda postage stamp.

He almost looks like the holographic Yoda from the end of Return of the Jedi. I’m actually surprised that nobody ever mailed me a letter with Yoda on it. And now that the cost of a First-Class letter has gone up to 46 cents, you’d have to add on another 5 cent stamp if you even tried.

On the plus side, you can still find these collectible stamps for sale over on Amazon for about $16 to $20 for a sheet of 20. I wonder how much postage it would take to mail a First-Class letter to the Dagobah system.
