Others on a top-secret list revealed by the Post include music stars Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Presley (reissuing an earlier stamp), Janis Joplin, and James Brown, sports stars Wilt Chamberlain, TV host Johnny Carson, slain San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk, Dora the Explorer, the Peanuts gang and actor (and NRA president) Charlton Heston.
The Post said though many of the stamps are in development, some, such as the Chamberlain, Milk, Joplin and Hendrix stamps, plus a stamp of celebrity chefs, are planned for 2014. Stamps featuring Carson, Latino baseball, Ingrid Bergman, the Peanuts gang and Steve Jobs are planned for 2015. An Elizabeth Taylor stamp is marked for 2016. Despite the list, though, the Post quoted Postal Service executive Susan MacGowan as saying the list was “subject to change.”
