1937 Central American and Caribbean Games Baseball Stamps (Nicaragua) Overview
These stamps, produced in 1937, are believed to have been printed for the Central American and Caribbean Games. Due to their release date, they were likely printed as a precursor to the 1938 games since no games were held in 1937. The stamps were produced by Nicaragua, one of the participating nations.
The set included only one subject, a baseball player. A generic batter is shown on four different stamps. Each stamp has the same pose, but four different colors were used – blue, green, red, and orange.
Baseball was a central theme in the Central American and Caribbean Games. It was also featured on a stamp in a 1938 issue.
Because the stamps were actual postage stamps, they carried specific denominations. They are often found canceled/used and those have less value than unused stamps.
