Postal Service Unveils Sugar Ray Robinson 2006 Commemorative Stamp
To be dedicated at Washington 2006 Stamp Exhibition
In April, the Postal Service pays tribute to six-time world-champion Boxing legend Sugar Ray Robinson on a stamp.
Resembling a vintage fight poster from the 1940s and '50s, the "Sugar Ray Robinson" stamp design features block lettering and a halftone image of Robinson created from a photographic portrait made during his peak fighting years. He reigned as the world welterweight and middleweight champion.
