"Take Me Out To The Ball Game" Commemorative Stamp, sheet of 20, Mint. Twenty (20) 42 cent commemorative stamps celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the song "Take Me Out to the Ball Game". Issued July 16, 2008 at Washington DC. The basis for the stamp art is a circa-1880 trade card from the personal collection of art director Richard Sheaff. Self-Adhesive.

This issuance commemorates the 100th anniversary of “Take Me Out to the Ball Game,” one of the most popular baseball songs of all time. For decades, the song’s catchy chorus has been part of the musical tradition at ballparks around the country, especially during the seventh–inning stretch.

The song was born on a New York City train in the summer of 1908, when passenger Jack Norworth (1879–1959), an actor, singer, and songwriter who had never attended a major league ball game, saw a sign about an upcoming game at the Polo Grounds. Suddenly inspired, he took out a piece of paper and began dashing off lines about a fictional fan. Another fun fact about the song is that if a baseball game reaches the 14th inning stretch, the song is sung again. It was even sung in the spring of 2008 at the 21st inning stretch at the Rockies vs. Padres game!
