First Day Cover Collection

Several First Day Covers (also referred to as Event Covers) were created to commemorate HemisFair ’68 as well as the first day of issue of the HemisFair postal stamp. Each of the covers below contains unique artwork (Cachet) on the left side.


Below are scans of the covers in my collection. (Click on images for a closer look)

Here is my favorite FDC in the collection, mainly because it contains commerative stamps from the following World’s Fairs:

Chicago – 1933 Century of Progress (2 different stamps)
New York – 1939 World’s Fair
San Francisco – 1939 Golden Gate Exposition
Seattle – Century 21 Exposition
New York – 1964 World’s Fair
San Antonio – HemisFair ‘68
