USA 1978 Jimmie Rogers Performing Arts Series Plate Block of 12 Postage Stamps, MNH
These 13-cent Jimmie Rodgers (1897-1933) stamps were first available on May 24, 1978, at Meridian, Mississippi. Jimmie Rodgers brought southern music to center stage in the United States. He is remembered particularly for his songs about railroading. The songs of African-Americans who worked for the roads influenced him, and he was known by many as the 'Singing Brakeman'. He died of tuberculosis in 1933.
Mint never hinged condition.
