New postage stamps are apple of Bay State’s eyes

Bay State philatelists, rejoice: New postcard stamps issued by the US Postal Service feature a Massachusetts apple, illustrated by a Bay State resident.

The four 33-cent stamps in the Apples series feature artwork by John Burgoyne of West Barnstable, and they include Massachusetts’ own Baldwin apple, said postal service spokesman Mark Saunders. The Apples stamps are being issued ahead of a one-cent increase in postcard postage, which will take effect Jan. 27.
