Rush stamp collectible available from Toronto's First Post Office
4:24PM EST | comments (10) |

Rush limited edition stamp collectibleThis past July the Canada Post officially released a Canadian Recording Artist stamp series featuring Rush and other Canadian artists. Today the sale of a special, limited edition, signed day-of-issue cover for the Rush stamp was announced via a press release, with all proceeds of the sale going to support Toronto's First Post Office. Only 10 of these special envelopes are in existence and each is signed by all three members of the band. Each is printed on 100% cotton paper and shows an early-era photo of the band with the starman logo as a watermark. They are numbered out of ten and come 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 Rock Hall induction and reads as follows:

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.

The covers are available for $500 each, with all proceeds going to support Toronto's First Post Office. If you are interested in purchasing one of the covers, contact the museums's curator/director Janet Walters ASAP at 416-865-1833 or via email at tfpo@total.net. Thanks to The B-Man for the heads up.

I called the next day to try to buy one of these. The (very nice Canadian) lady said they sold out QUICK. I said they should have sold them for more and she agreed.

So.

I've watched the second half of the show and all the add ons and extras and just want to say it's all still GREAT!!!

Love the strings, they especially make Dreamline shine.

What a band. I love being a Rush fan and I love even more that many of my friends and associates don't get it.

Now... where did I put that Vapor Trails remix.

I would love to have this, but I don't have the money. It's a little pricey, maybe if they can't sell them I can look for a posting of a clearance sale? LOL!

Well.

Tenuous link I know but talking of things postal my own lovely Royal Mail postman visited me this morning to give me two packages, one containing the Blue Ray concert film and the other containing the live cd and the remixed Vapor Trails cd so you can imagine that I was a very happy chappie this morning.

I have watched the first half of the concert film and can only say that I am STILL a very happy chappie. The band and the excellent team around them have delivered exactly what I expected they would - a very enjoyable, exciting and memoral record of what was a fantastic tour and stage production.

The boys look great, the stage and lighting look great, the crowd look great, the sound is great, the playing is great, Geddy's voice SOUNDS great.... get the point?

I don't understand all the bitching, moaning a griping that goes on in this forum sometimes, particularly about things that have not been seen or heard yet. The same happened before the release of Clockwork Angels.

A great memento. Really looking forward to what ever comes next, when ever thay might be.

Thank goodness for email or I'd have gotten in line for the envelope tomorrow after getting in line for the theater event yesterday and the BluRay disc today. Wonder what the day after tomorrow will bring?

It's $500 because somehow the mayor has to pay his lawyer fees.

Very cool, but not $500 cool!
