Fred Rogers is among the 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.”

A sneak peek of the stamp showed Rogers posing with “Mister Rogers' Neighborhood” character King Friday.

The issuance date has not been revealed, and the USPS noted that the design of the stamp is preliminary and could change.
