Bette Davis, Baseball, Flags Featured in 2008 Postage Stamps

What do Bette Davis, flags and baseball have in common?

They are all going to be honored with U.S. postage stamps in the New Year.

2008 marks the 100th anniversary of the legendary actress' birth.

The commemorative stamp honoring her is the 14th in the postal service's Legends of Hollywood series.

1908 was also the year that an actor named Jack Norworth wrote a song called "Take Me Out to the Ball Game."

It still gets a workout during big-league seventh inning stretches.

The melody will be recalled with a stamp based on a 19th-Century baseball card.

The new year will also see the launch of a long-term stamp project called flags of our nation.

The 60-stamp set will include the stars and stripes and the flags of each of the states, plus the District of Columbia and U.S. territories.
