USA 1999 Celebrate the Century 1950s - Go to Movies 3-D Anaglyph Stamp

Issue date - 26 May 1999

The Celebrate The Century: 1950s commemorative stamp souvenir sheet was issued on May 26, 1999, in Springfield, Maryland.

The souvenir sheet features 1950s subjects from the following categories: People and Events, Arts and Entertainment, Lifestyles, Sports, and Science and Technology. 

The fifteen commemorative stamps in this sheet are titled: Polio Vaccine Developed; Teen Fashions; The "Shot Heard Round The World"; US Launches Satellites; The Korean War; Desegregating Public Schools; Tail Fins and Chrome; Dr. Seuss "The Cat In The Hat"; Drive-In Movies; World Series Rivals; Rocky Marciano, Undefeated; I Love Lucy; Rock 'n' Roll; Stock Car Racing; and Movies Go 3-D.

The stamp titled Movies Go 3-D had following text on the reverse: "Responding to the growing popularity of TV, film studios began producing 3-D movies. Wearing glasses with gray Polaroid ® lenses, viewers were startled by images that leapt off the screen."

I have only the Movies Go 3-D stamp in my collection and not the souvenir sheet. The souvenir sheet shown above is only for representation purpose only. To view this stamp in 3D you need special 3D polaroid glasses.
