Postal Service unveils 2006 Commemorative stamps

December 1st, 2005

What do Baseball, Batman, Brooklyn's Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, Hattie McDaniel and Harley Davidson have in common? They're all just a sampling of American icons that will be highlighted on 2006 Commemorative postage stamps, the Postal Service announced today.

"Our 2006 program commemorates a wide range of diverse American icons with something that will appeal to everyone," said Postmaster General John E. Potter in describing stamps that will honor Baseball sluggers, comic book heroes, the world's longest bridge span, the first African-American to earn an Oscar and America's love affair with motorcycles.
