The upcoming Wilt Chamberlain commemorative issue will consist of two stamps, according to a Sept. 4 announcement by the United States Postal Service.
The USPS Postal Bulletin for that date includes a reference to the two stamp designs being issued in a pane of 20.
Stamp Services director Susan McGowan previously stated that the stamp issue will be extra-tall to honor an extra-tall athlete, the 7-foot 1-inch NBA basketball star.
The stamps are scheduled to be issued in December during a home game of the Philadelphia 76ers, with whom Chamberlain won the NBA championship in 1967.
