The US Postal Service hopes Steve Jobs can do for it what he once did for Apple.

The late Apple co-founder will be featured on a commemorative US postage stamp in 2015, according to a US Postal Service list of approved subjects obtained by The Washington Post. Usually kept secret to maximize buzz over stamps’ subjects, the list includes subjects the post office plans to commemorate on stamps for the rest of this year and the next couple of years.

In addition to the historical, cultural, and literary figures who have traditionally graced US postage stamps, the list reflects a shift toward more popular subjects as the troubled service seeks to build revenue from younger collectors, the Post noted.

Other approved subjects already listed as in design development on the January 7 list include slain gay rights leader Harvey Milk, basketball great Wilt Chamberlain, TV host Johnny Carson, and music greats Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin. The service also plans to commemorate the Peanut comic strip, science fiction writers, and movie actress Ingrid Bergman.

While work on many of the subjects has already begun, Susan McGowan, the Postal Service’s executive director for stamp services and corporate licensing, told the Post that the list’s subjects “are subject to change” at any time.
