29c Olympic Baseball single
- The U.S. Postal Service saluted the game of baseball in its first year as an Olympic medal sport with the issuance of a 29-cent commemorative stamp on April 3, 1992, in Atlanta, Georgia. Atlanta, home of the Braves, 1991 champions of baseball's National League, was the site of the 1996 Summer Olympic Games.
- The Baseball stamp featured a graphic image of a base runner engulfed in a cloud of dust as he tries to slide into home plate under the tag of the opposing catcher. The Postal Service was a worldwide sponsor of the 1992 Summer and Winter Olympic Games.
- The stamp was designed by Anthony DeLuz of Boston, Massachusetts, as part of an International Stamp Art contest sponsored by the Postal Service and eight of its thirty-two partner postal administrations from around the world as part of their unified Olympic sponsorship.
- The stamps were printed in the photogravure process by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, and issued in panes of fifty.
