Unused vintage Take Me Out to the Ballgame Baseball postage stamps from 2008 - face value is 42¢ each.
This stamp commemorates the 100th anniversary of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game," one of the most popular baseball songs of all time. For decades, the song's catchy chorus has been part of the musical tradition at ballparks around the country, especially during the seventh-inning stretch.
The song was born on a New York City train in the summer of 1908, when passenger Jack Norworth (1879-1959), an actor, singer, and songwriter who had never attended a major league ball game, saw a sign about an upcoming game at the Polo Grounds. Suddenly inspired, he took out a piece of paper and began dashing off lines about a fictional fan.
