2009 Commemorative Postage Stamps

The Post Office has now released a full schedule of their commemorative stamp program for 2009.

As previously mentioned here, Bob Hope is among those being honored with a stamp.

Gary Cooper will have a stamp this fall.

One of the more unusual releases is a stamp celebrating a Thanksgiving Day Parade, which will be dedicated at Macy's in New York City.

Another stamp sheet will celebrate early television shows.

The 50th anniversary of both Alaskan and Hawaiian statehood will also be the subject of this year's postage stamps.

Great looking stamps this year. I really like those black and white TV images ... they even have Howdy Doody ! Some of my other favorites are the Kelp Forest, Abraham Lincoln, and for Christmas I like the Angel With Lute. But I won't be buying any :( We bought a ton of the Forever stamps, though I may just have to buy a sheet of the TV ones to keep.
