"Play Ball - Soccer"
I desided that the type wasn't "strong" enough to match the image... so, I ran each of these through the printer for a second "hit" on the type. They now appear as you see in the scan below...
The History of Hockey
Dual Cancel - US/Canada
"Lord Stanley of Preston"
Originator of The Stanley Cup
"...Behold The Lamb of God..."
"From the Manger to the Cross"
John F. Kennedy... ?
The WRONG cancellations were applied to Joshua McGee's very nice cachet design that he printed. Joshua's design includes the portrait of JFK with folded arms, the type under the image along with the simple but elegant gold border edges. Joshua chose not to return them for correct cancels and I was able to purchase six of them from him and gain permission to add my own cachet to create this RARE AND VERY UNIQUE FIRST DAY COVER "EmPrint" CACHET... by creating the design you see here... Hopefully the attempt at humor comes through to those seeing it... Uncle Sam has "lost" his hat... and it seems that "Uncle Jack" may have it?
"Uncle Jack's Hat"
I added a special version of my EmPrint Logo to the reverse side with notation of having permission to print my cachet along side Joshua McGee's cachet!
ONLY SIX PRINTED!
