Wow! I have to admint, I don't have a clue if there are any Boris Becker, Steffi Graf or Thomas Muster stamps in Germany or Austria. I don't know and I'm not much interested in stamps (or collecting them), but I like the idea!

Re: Arthur Ashe stamp

Question: is 37 US cents the amount of what a standard letter within the US does cost?

Damn, that's really cheap in the US... a standard letter (up to 20 grams) within a small country like Austria (for Germany it's the same) is 55 Euro(!) cents
