    There are also two other Ryder Cup Stamps from An Post which have those moving images on them! (See below for the excerpt from An Post’s description).

    “The 2006 Ryder Cup is a hugely significant event for Ireland, and to mark it, An Post is thrilled to announce a truly momentous stamp issue. On 14 September 2006, Ireland’s first-ever lenticular stamps will be issued. Lenticular images, like holographic ones, are those that appear to move when you change their angle. An Post’s stamps feature visuals of a powerful drive off the tee, and a classic bunker escape, and, as the first lenticular stamps to
    be issued in Ireland, are set to make history. Until recently, lenticular printing was limited to simple ‘flip-cards’, comprising images of 2 or 3 frames, which produced only a very stilted movement. The more frames used to create an image, however, the greater the detail and motion, and thanks to new, sophisticated software, the production of much finer lenticular images can now be achieved. An Post’s stamps feature 50 frames, which combine to provide a virtually seamless passage of dramatic action.”

    I am looking for a Golf Ball stamp to stamp my golf ball just like the ones depicted on the stamps. Any idea on where i might find one?
