First Look: Johnny Cash's Commemorative Postage Stamp

The United States Postal Service will be putting out three commemorative stamps in 2013 that depict legendary music artists with the first release being the great Johnny Cash.

The photograph used is from 1963 and was shot by Frank Bez for the album Ring of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash.

USPS representative Mark Saunders explained the process for selecting subjects. "We get about 40,000 suggestions for stamp ideas each year but only about 20 topics make the cut. These suggestions are reviewed by the Postmaster General’s Citizens' Stamp Advisory whose role is to narrow down that 40,000 to roughly 20 and then provide their recommendations to the Postmaster General for final approval."
