Issued two years after Disney’s death, this stamp was designed while the artist worked for the Walt Disney Company. The rules have changed, and now anyone honored on a U.S. stamp must be dead for at least ten years. The only exceptions are U.S. presidents, who are honored on their first birth anniversary following their deaths.
