The United States Postal Service will release a Mister Rogers stamp in 2018, a year that also marks the 50th anniversary of PBS's “Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.”
Fred Rogers is among icons such as Lena Horne, John Lennon and Sally Ride whose faces will appear on stamps included in the postal service’s 2018 stamp program.
The USPS described Rogers as “a beloved television neighbor to generations of children” whose television series “inspired and educated young viewers with warmth, sensitivity and honesty.”
