Jimi Hendrix, James Brown among those honored with postage stamp
The USPS announced more names in its “celebrity line” of postage stamps.
The USPS will release stamps featuring several notable people, including NBA star Wilt Chamberlain, Jimi Hendrix, James Brown, and Michael Jackson.
The document also names a number of people and characters who will be honored with stamps sometime in the future. Among them are general music-related stamps honoring guitars and hip-hop, as well as several new entries in the U.S.P.S.’s Music Icons series, including Lennon, Bill Monroe, Jim Morrison, Sam Cooke, Tammy Wynette, “Fats” Waller, Freddie Fender, Roy Orbison, Sarah Vaughan and Willie Dixon. Michael Jackson will also be getting his own stamp that is not part of the Icons series.
The USPS hopes to intrigue young(er) stamp collectors with these additions.
