Hungary issues commemorative postal sheet and card dedicated to Steve Jobs
By The Associated Press

BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) ' Hungary's postal service says it has issued a numbered commemorative sheet incorporating a stamp-sized image of Steve Jobs, in memory of the co-founder of Apple Inc. who died in October.

Magyar Posta said Wednesday that 5,000 copies of the memorial set have been issued, selling for 1,000 forints ($4.40, euro3.30) each.

The sheet includes a perforated portrait of Jobs, while an accompanying card shows silhouettes of some of the inventor's characteristic poses and a quote about Jobs by Erno Rubik, the Hungarian architect who created Rubik's Cube and other mechanical puzzles.

A Budapest software company is planning to unveil a Jobs statue in December.

Jobs died at age 56 on Oct. 5 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

The commemorative sheet cannot be used to pay for postage
