In many parts of the world, people, places, and other pieces of history are still forever immortalized by one of the most common circulated marks of commerce: A postage stamp.
Sega will join such historical marks by way of the Japan Post. Today, Sega of Japan announced the shipping company will produce a set of ten commemorative stamps, with nine representing the consoles the company has produced over the course of its 60-year history, from the SC-3000 in 1983 to its last hurrah in the console business: the Dreamcast.
But that’s not all: Japan Post will also release a similar set of commemorative pins, in similar style and fashion.
The pin set will cost ¥11,000, or a bit over $102. You won’t want to affix those Sega stamps on any parcels, either; that set will run you ¥4,400, or over $40.
Pre-orders will begin for both items on May 1st. It’s unclear how or if the sets can be imported, though there is a landing page for them on the Japan Post website. If we find a way, we’ll be sure to tell you.
