Super Mario stamps (Japan)

There’s already been several Nintendo-themed stamps sets in various countries, and this week, there will be one more in Japan. Once again, it’s the Super Mario series that was chosen for this stamp set, which features some brand new and exclusive illustrations. They will be available from June 28th at the many post offices across the country, but also online.

The set costs 820 Yen, and includes 10 different stamps (82 Yen value each). Here’s some pictures of the stamps (and the special imprint):

Naturally, those stamps will only be available for purchase for a limited time, so if you’re a collector trying to get your hands on a set, you will have to act fast.
