Ashes fever commemorated in three new stamps

At Lord's cricket ground on 30th June a special set of stamps commemorating the 2009 Ashes series was released. Britain's secret little post office at Bletchley Park has got together with the Isle of Man Post Office and the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) to celebrate an Ashes Summer. The result is a presentation pack and first day cover for three unique stamps. One features W G Grace playing at Lord's, another shows the Ashes urn with the crystal trophy and the third a Karen Neale painting of the 2005 series. The stamps are featured against a backdrop of a match at Lord's.
