With a few notable exceptions, what a pile of dreck. There are no other significant events or personages that warrant commemoration on a stamp for 2021? (have to think about that) So we get mystery messages, barns, backyard games, western wear, monsters, and espresso drinks? Just one person's humble opinion.

They do commemorate one historical person, one group and several events. What you are seeing is the decline in traditional Western historic persons and events as stamp subjects in favor of complete diversity. One can only presume they know their customers, and know the media watches. And a dud issue costs them less than $100K, so there's no real disincentive to push the edges.

Last year we had about 120 stickers. Wonder how much stuff we'll get this year before it is all over

Peter and all,

If folks buy them for their collection and never use them, the postal authorities will produce all the postal stickers your addiction craves. They figured that out after the Columbian issue of 1893.

I recently had a post expressing these sentiments deleted from Farjolia's board. Hope this board is more open minded to the thought a postage stamp should be defined as a stamp sold by a postal authority for the payment of postage as a convenience to its customers NOT a convenience of the postal authority or its commercial companions to generate revenue.

That being said, I stand for folks being free and encouraged to collect whatever they enjoy collecting.

cj - yes, those are the ones I was referring to as notable exceptions. The rest are utterly forgettable.

It is too easy now to get into "trouble" by enraging a tiny but social media vocal minority of the population. Best to stick with popsicles, hearts, puppies, cartoons, barns....

What a bunch of old fogies. Stamps should be created to be fun as well as commemorate serious people and events. Instead of complaining about what is going to be issued, suppose you all provide important people or events that have been ignored. What happened in 1971, 1921, 1871, 1821, or 1771, that is crying out to be commemorated? Who of importance has an anniversary that is being ignored? Besides my mother, who was born in 1921.

There have already been two stamps for Einstein.
The war ended in 1918, the signing was simply a formality. It was important political moment, because the US had refused to ratify the treaty the others signed in 1919, but worth a stamp?
An Armistice Day/Arlington National Cemetery stamp may yet be announced, since that is still a whole year away.

Willem Johan Kolff (born 1911), inventor of the dialysis machine which he gifted to the world without filing for a patent or cashing in. He is responsible for saving millions of lives since 1943. A naturalized US citizen, he would check the box of the positive impact of immigrants.
