Rush Stamps Get Special Limited Edition Autographed Covers
Originally printed in an edition of 100, all unsigned copies of the first-day covers have been destroyed as per an agreement with the band's management.
Each 4" x 7 ½" cover is printed on 100% cotton paper and shows the band in an earlier era with the "star man" logo as a watermark. Each is numbered out of ten and comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by both the band's management and the museum's curator. The text on the back celebrates Rush's induction, in April of this year, into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame:
"On April 18, 2013, the Canadian band Rush was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. To celebrate that event, and to coincide with the release of a Rush stamp by Canada Post on July 19, 2013, Toronto's First Post Office has created a limited number of these commemorative covers. Toronto's First Post Office is a National Historic Site and museum operated by the Town of York Historical Society." more on this story
