Welcome to Gateway Stamp Co.

         Welcome to the Fantastic World of Personally-Autographed Gateway Commemorative Envelopes.  Originally Created in 1977 to Buy and Sell Stamps, our Attention Was Turned to the Fascinating World of Postmarks with the 50th Anniversary of the Flight of Charles Lindbergh.  While Working with the U.S. Postal Service on our own Charles Lindbergh Edition, a Postal Worker Said, “Someone Ought to do Something for Lou Brock – He’s Going to Make History.”  Indeed He Did, Tying and Breaking Ty Cobb’s All-Time Stolen Base Record in 1977.  When Lou Offered to Sign 2,500 Autographs for Gateway, He and Gateway Initiated What Became the Modern Sports Autograph Industry.

THE BEST WAY TO MARK A DATE IN HISTORY IS WITH A POSTMARK

    Indeed Everyone Knows the Importance of a Postmark, Especially on April 15th.  Giving Gateway the Rights to Commemorate His All-Time Stolen Base Record, Lou Brock and Gateway Teamed Up to Inaugurate what is Now Over 40 Years of Documenting and Preserving Major Sports History by Way of the Postmark, Gateway’s Unique Silk Cachets, and Finally, Personal Autographs from Over 1,000 Sports Celebrities Marking Major Milestones Such as No-Hitters, 3000th Hits and Strikeouts, 300 Wins, Strikeout Records,  Home Run Records (500 & 600, etc.), Stolen Base Records, All-Star Games,  World Series Editions, Hall of Fame Inductions, and What We Call “Lore of the Game.”  Our Football Editions Include Major Records, Super Bowl Editions, and Hall of Fame Inductions, and Our Basketball Editions Include Major Milestones and Hall of Famers.

      Even Former U.S. Presidents Have Joined Gateway’s Family, Signing Their Election and Inauguration Issues. Four Former Presidents Have Signed for Gateway (Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush), As Well As Former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbchev. 

     Gateway Envelopes Include Actual Sports Photographs of the Events, and/or the Artistry of Some of America’s Finest Sports Artists.  History is our Focus.  Where History Occurs, We Go to Press; Where It Doesn’t, We Don’t.

     All Gateway Issues Are Limited Editions, Anywhere from 100 to 5,000 Envelopes for Each Event.  Once Those Dates Pass, We Can Obtain No More Postmarks Under Strict Postal Regulations.  NO ONE, ABSOLUTELY NO ONE Can Match Gateway’s Treatment of the Last 40-Plus Years of Sports Memories We All Love to Recall.  Once We Sell Out of Any Edition, It Becomes Obsolete and Available Only in the Secondary Collectors’ Market.

      Gateway Has Combined the World of Stamp Collecting With Love of Sports.  Many Issues Are Graced with Special U.S. or Canadian Postage Stamps Tying the Celebrity with the State or City Where History Occurs.  Many of Those Editions Are the Rarest of Gateway Products.  Finally, We Stand Behind Our Integrity.  Most Gateway Envelopes Are Personally Autographed, but Many Are Not.  Our Policy Has Always Been, If for Any Reason a Player Will Not or Cannot Sign for Us, We Don’t Want Anything on our Envelopes At All.  When Requested, A Certificate of Authenticity is Provided, Signed by a Gateway Official.  Issues Purchased From Dealers or Before 1999 Will Be Supplied with a C.O.A, at a Charge of $7.50 Each If and When We Can Verify the Autographs.  We Consider Ourselves Experts in That Regard.
