Edgar Allen Poe, Lucy and Ethel, and Abraham Lincoln will be among the subjects featured on the United States Postal Service's 2009 lineup of commemorative stamps unveiled today.

The First Class stamps also include civil rights pioneers, such as Medgar Evers; Supreme Court justices, such as William J. Brennan Jr.; the Thanksgiving Day parade; and actor Gary Cooper.

In addition to the I Love Lucy show, the Early TV Memories stamps commemorate 19 other shows, including Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet, Alfred Hitchcock Presents and Lassie, and are scheduled for release in August.

The stamps also will mark the statehood anniversaries of Oregon, Alaska and Hawaii, and mark the 106th birthday of Bob Hope in May.
