Default The Revolver Stamp is my favorite

In the US, the only way to be on a stamp is if the person has been dead for a decade.

I love these Royal Beatle Stamps - I want them all!

How long will these stamps be available? I don't buy stamps normally (my father does that), so I have no idea how long specialty stamps last, but I'm going to England next Spring break, so I want to try to pick some up.

The USPS put out a Yellow Submarine stamp in 1999 as part of 20th Century pop culture series:

You stole my idea!

well obviously we all know sadie is mean and will never send any, where as I am so so nice, I would happily send some, of course it will cost a little bit, say 5 per stamp! plus VAT and added effort costs on my half, and postage costs and electricity costs for me coming on the computer! so it all adds up, buty i'm sure my deal will work out as much more of a benefit for you then sadies!

Don't the people being commemorated by the USPS also have to be American? I don't know much about this subject, but I remember the Rock and Roll stamps put out by the USPS a few years ago, and I think all of them were long dead, and American.
