For the Philatelist
Royal Mail has finally put the Ashes Stamps up for sale on its website. There is a miniature sheet for £1.96, a presentation pack for £2.50 and a first day cover for £2.72.
The choice of images could have been a lot better. I would have picked the image of Freddie bending over and patting Brett Lee at the end of the second test - that for me is without doubt the best moment of the entire series and that should have been captured on a stamp instead of some random on-the-field moment.
