Columbia Postmaster Jim Antill has designated Monday as “Gamecock College World Series Champions Day” for Columbia post offices.

Available on Monday will be a special pictorial postmark and a colorful, collectible envelope in honor of the USC Gamecocks’ baseball victory at the 2010 College World Series.

Both items will be available at Columbia’s Main Post Office. The envelope costs $5, but the pictorial postmark is free on items bearing first-class postage.

On the back side of the envelope is a description of the team’s road to the win and a listing of the scores from series games.

The envelope also may be ordered by mail: Send to Gamecock Envelope, P.O. Box 69 Assembly St. Columbia, SC 29201-0069. Checks or money orders should be made out to “Postmaster.”

Envelopes will be available on a first-come, first-served basis until sold out.
