Item Description1995 marked the 100th anniversary of the emergence of what is accepted as the first American newspaper 'comic' -- Richard Outcault's "The Yellow Kid" . . . and the USPS observed this centennial with a sheet of 20 stamps depicting some of the best-known comic strip characters from the first 50 years of newspaper comics.
The stamps for Dick Tracy, the hardboiled and heroic police detective, and Alley Oop, the sturdy and no-nonsense caveman who lived in the Kingdom of Moo with his dinosaur pal Dinny, grace this cover.
The cachet, depicting ALTERED versions (to comply with copyright laws) of famous comics characters, is handcolored, and shows turn-of-the-century black and white characters interacting with their more modern counterparts.
Less than 50 of these FDCs were serviced and handcolored.
