Oliphant Maximum card from 1988
Based on this text, I'm unclear as to whether Oliphant drew the stamp as well. Does anyone know? And I don't know if the USPS does these anymore - I've been buying stamped postcards for the recent comics stamps.
"This maximum card was issued in connection with the U.S./ Australia commemorative stamp which was jointly issued in Washington, D.C. and Sydney, Australia, on January 26, 1988. The stamps was designed by Roland Harvey of Fitzroy, Victoria, Australia. The art shown on the reverse of this card was designed by the renowned syndicated cartoonist, Pat Oliphant.
