Special Stamp Issue For Top-Ranked England

Britain’s secret little post office at Bletchley Park has been quick off the mark to celebrate England becoming World’s Number 1 cricket team. Following the Test match win against India at Edgbaston a special stamp and envelope combination went onto their web site at bletchleycovers.com.

It features two exclusive paintings by renowned cricket artist Christina Pierce, one on the envelope and another on the stamp. The stamp will be specially cancelled with a unique postmark.

Only 500 are being issued at £8.50 plus £1.50 post and packing. Bletchley Park Post Office issues sell out quickly and can fetch many times more than the issue price.

England will finish the summer as the top-ranked Test team in the world
