Women on Stamps | Babe Zaharias

I hope you have enjoyed this A-Z round of Sunday Stamps-II as much as I have. In some ways, it has been a sort of long-distance race... So, the stamp for Z had to be an athlete, of course!


Mildred Ella "Babe" Didrikson Zaharias (1911 – 1956) was an American athlete who achieved a great deal of success in golf, basketball, baseball and track and field. On 22 September 1981, the USPS issued this stamp commemorating her.

For this edition of Sunday Stamps-II A to Z, I have decided to show some of the stamps I have got on letters and postcards, related to one topic: women. This is the post for the letter Z.

More women on stamps.

  1. Congratulations on completing your A-Z of women. It is hard enough to do an A-Z without also keeping to one theme. I've learned a lot.

    1. I can't access to my collection right now (Things that happen when one moves...), neither my computer. So my options are a bit limited... I think I'll try to do the new round with the latest stamps I've got. Let's see if I can manage it!
