Frank Sinatra stamp unveiled

Nancy, Frank Jr. and Tina Sinatra (in red jacket) joined officials from the U.S. Postal Service Dec. 12, 2007 in unveiling the stamp that will honor their father when issued next spring.

“Our father loved this country,” said the Sinatra family, represented by Nancy, Frank Jr. and Tina Sinatra. “This would have been one of his happiest days.”

According to USPS press release, "Art director Richard Sheaff of Scottsdale, AZ, worked with stamp artist Kazuhiko Sano of Mill Valley, CA, to create the image based on a 1950s photograph of the entertainment icon."

"The stamp depicts Sinatra’s charismatic smile, trademark fedora and cobalt blue eyes that earned him the nickname "Old Blue Eyes.”

Sinatra’s autograph also appears on the stamp.
