The Johnny Cash (Forever®) stamp is being issued this year as part of the exciting new Music Icons stamp series. Resembling the appearance of a 45 rpm record sleeve, the square stamp features a photograph taken by Frank Bez during  the photo session for Ring of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash (1963).

I used to collect stamps when I was a kid. It was a hobby I didn’t continue, too boring when I had a bike to ride, baseball, swimming and football calling me to action.  I do have a couple of small collections of musician stamps framed that I like. I’ll be getting one of the new Johnny Cash stamps when it comes out June 5. Thanks to Jeanee Mooney the Postmaster in Lolo for the invite to an “event” on release day.
