List of people on stamps issued by the United States Postal Service. Being featured on US postage is an honor for actors, athletes, politicians and other famous people whose faces grace our US postage. This list celebrates all 971 of the people whose lives have been commemorated in stamp form. I salute you...even if you do cost twice as much today as you did ten years ago.
