Steve Jobs To Appear on Postage Stamps

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) -- Apple co-founder Steve Jobs could appear on a U.S. Postage stamp next year.

His name was on a list of approved stamp subjects obtained by The Washington Post, along with Michael Jackson, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon and Elizabeth Taylor.

A postal service representative says the list is still subject to change.

The new subjects are part of an effort by the cash-strapped agency to raise revenues by issuing more stamps of pop-culture figures.

Those are pretty popular with collectors.

Jobs, who died in 2011, would be the first person from America's computer industry to be honored on a stamp.
