If you're the kind of die-hard Yankee fan that doesn't think Ted Williams belongs in the same space next to Joe DiMaggio, the U.S. Postal Service agrees with you.

Following a recent announcement that DiMaggio, Williams, Willie Stargell and Larry Doby would be collectively honored on a single sheet of Forever stamps, the U.S. Postal Service announced Wednesday that each icon would also be honored individually as well on a sheet of 20 stamps.

The individual player stamp sheets will be sold in limited quantities beginning July 21 at select Post Office in Boston, Cleveland, Cooperstown, New York and Pittsburgh. You can also pre-order stamps online or by calling 1-800-STAMP24.

Dedication ceremonies are also slated to take place in Cooperstown on July 20 and New York on July 21. Event locations for the New York dedication have yet to be announced.
