Limited Edition Postage Stamp Collections

Warner Brothers has partnered with to produce Wizard of Oz Photostamps to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the MGM film. The first set is the Limited Edition Ruby Slipper Collection Postage Stamps. Top shoe designers were chosen to re-interpret the ruby slippers. The stamps show 10 designer sketches for the pairs of ruby slippers that are to be auctioned next year. The shoes themselves debuted in New York on September 5. After this week the shoes will embark on a country wide tour. The proceeds from the postage stamps and next year's auction will benefit the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. The stamps are $19.99. These are legitimate U.S. postage stamps if you choose to actually use them. Thanks to Jim Whitcomb for finding the link to order
UPDATE: If you've already ordered your stamps, please go back to the website to make sure your order has not been cancelled. Apparently there was some sort of glitch and the first 12 people who ordered were accidentally canceled out. You may have to place your order again. Thanks Jim Whitcomb for this info!
