Hi all,

The All-Star game may be over, but hundreds of fans are still lining-up to collect the first-ever NBA-licensed postage labels. As a PR representative for Pitney Bowes I have watched as fans made a fast break for these history-making labels of the players fans chose to represent their conference. The l20 different labels include all-time favorites such Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat, Tracy McGrady of the Houston Rockets and LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers , as well as logos from the East and West conferences and the event logo. Fans or memorabilia should visit to check out the four different sheets of postage featuring All-Star East or All Star West starting players. Unfortunately, this first-ever customized postage is only available on the website through February 25th - then it'll be up to the collectors to track these down. Better hustle! - Meredith
