Pittsburgh, PA – It’s a beautiful day in neighborhoods across the country as a new postage stamp is being introduced to honor Mister Rogers.

Starting today, the US Postal Service will sell a stamp featuring Fred Rogers, the wholesome TV host of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.” The stamp shows Rogers in his trademark red cardigan, along with the puppet King Friday.

A dedication ceremony will be held at WQED in Pittsburgh, where the PBS show was filmed. Rogers died in 2003 at the age of 74. His widow and David Newell, who played Mr. McFeely, are both expected to attend the ceremony.

If you’d like to buy the Mister Rogers stamp, you can visit the post office in your neighborhood or order the stamps online here.
