1984 Olympics Set of 22 Hand-Painted First Day Covers by Karen's Cachets (Karen Sabinsky). Karen Sabinsky produced spectacular limited edition hand painted First Day Covers (FDC) under the name, "Karen's Cachets" from August 1982 (Touro Synagogue, Scott 2017) until the late 1990's. Her professionally drawn and executed covers, often in a cartooning style, include this set of 22 FDCs for the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles.
The series is titled "Future Olympians" and features children playing at games that might (or might not) prepare them to compete in the Olympics. The black portion of the cachet is printed onto the envelope and the colors are hand painted. These 22 FDCs are all in limited editions of between 150 and 250. The set even includes the Yachting Postal Card (Scott UX100), which is not found in most sets.
The only stamp for which there is not an FDC is Discus, Scott 2048. Because they were made ini such small numbers, Karen's Cachets are not widely available from dealers.Also, please note that the entire proceeds go to charity! 100% of the proceeds of this sale go to Beyond the Walls (Charity) Make an offer!
