The story on those nifty automotive stamps from USPS and the guy who paints them

Ever see those pony car postage stamps produced by the United States Postal Service? Having our very own government create automotive art for daily use is something that we don’t always get to experience. Tom Fritz, the gentleman who illustrated them, was at the recent Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale 2023 auction, and the ClassicCars.com Journal caught up with him to learn more about him and how the stamps came to be.

In 2008, the United States Post Office approached Tom with the idea of illustrating muscle car postage stamps, which finally were introduced in 2013. The pony car series was the same — the USPS approached him in 2017, and the stamps appeared for public consumption in 2022.
