Sally Ride FDC

Sally ride was the first US woman in space. She rode aboard the shuttle Challenger during STS-7 in 1983 and again during STS-41-G in 1984.  This stamp was issued on 23 May. The first day postmark location was La Jolla in San Diego, CA : her home and place of death in 2012.

I sent this envelope out for the FDC postmark along with a pair of postcards for maximum cards. The postmark on one card was double struck and smudged. The other card received s beautiful postmark but it was placed poorly. That was my fault. Thankfully this small envelope FDC turned out ok. Not a total loss.
