The photograph used is from 1963 and was shot by Frank Bez for the album Ring of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash.

USPS representative Mark Saunders explained the process for selecting subjects. “We get about 40,000 suggestions for stamp ideas each year but only about 20 topics make the cut.

These suggestions are reviewed by the Postmaster General’s Citizens’ Stamp Advisory whose role is to narrow down that 40,000 to roughly 20 and then provide their recommendations to the Postmaster General for final approval.”
