Katharine Hepburn Honored with U.S. Postage Stamp

Multi-Oscar winner Katharine Hepburn will be honored with a postage stamp in 2010.

The stamp will be released on Hepburn's birthdate, May 12th.

Roy Rogers and Gene Autry will also be featured in 2010 U.S. postage stamps. The Rogers and Autry stamps will be part of a set spotlighting film cowboys, along with William S. Hart and Tom Mix. They'll be out on April 17th.

Another interesting stamp will focus on baseball's Negro Leagues. That stamp comes out in June.

And who can resist a "Sunday Funnies" series of stamps focusing on Dennis the Menace, Garfield, Calvin & Hobbes, Beetle Bailey, and one of my all-time favorites, Archie? Archie is featured on the stamp with -- of course -- Betty and Veronica. The comics stamps go on sale in July.

This is a pretty stamp. First I've heard of it; thanks.

I took a peek at the other ones planned for next year...nice artwork on all of them: the Kate Smith one, the Bill Maudlin one, etc.

I'll be buying a bunch of extra sheets next year!
