1. Stamp for a slugger

The Minnesota Twins are leading a campaign to get one of the best power hitters in the team's history on a United States stamp.

"The U.S. Postal Service is currently considering featuring Hall-Of-Famer and Twins' legend Harmon Killebrew on a future U.S. postal stamp," the Twins official website reads. "We need your help to make this happen."

The team advises fans to write to Susan McGowan, executive director of Stamps Services at the USPS, although Cindy Tackett, a senior Stamp Services executive, was named McGowan’s interim replacement in October 2014. More info here.
