Manny Pacquiao "Fight of the Century" Stamps

Emmanuel "Manny" Pacquiao is the Philippine's pride and boxing legend. As a tribute to our People's Champ, a stamp has been released in his honor with the theme "Fight of the Century" referring to one of his biggest fights held last May. This was not his first time getting featured, the first happened last 2008.

I've been wanting to buy this since its date of release but when my friend came to our local post office, they don't sell. Apparently, it was only being sold at the Central Post Office. I was sad as this is one collectible release with the thought that it will only be few. But then, when the registry cards we sent to clients from our registered mails returned with these stamps attached, I pulled it all off.

  1. That stamp is so cool! Captures the action of the punch, great art. I am no boxing fan but I heard so much about that match before it happened. Was rooting heavily for Manny but apparently he was fighting hurt. Such a shame! Great post dear :) xoxo
