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!

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

Yes
Thanks. Knowing about that, this value makes of course perfectly sense then, but I was not completely sure because 37 US cents seemed to be so very cheap. 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 :lol: :o
