Connection Between Stamp Collectors and Black Friday

Just ran across this tidbit, in an article on the history of Black Friday:

"In 1966, the Black Friday name became famous in print. That's when a story appeared in an ad in The American Philatelist, a stamp collectors' magazine. The Philadelphia Police Department used the name to describe the traffic jams and crowding in the downtown stores."
