Stamp Collecting: 3 Things That Would Bring Back The Excitement!

Stamp Collecting: 3 Things That Would Bring Back The Excitement.

1. Parents – With the advent of the internet and modern technology world is now moving  and connecting faster then ever. It is up to each parent to slow it down and introduce their children to hobbies that take focus and critical thinking. Collecting and studying stamps can be lots of fun and it also involves kinesthetic abilities that increase brain development. If parents can introduce them to stamp collecting when they are young, then it will be a rewarding hobby that they can hone throughout their life and pass onto future generations. Parents are the key to putting stamp collecting back on the map where it belongs.

2. The Post Office – The postal service already has a wide range of critics. One group is stamp collectors across the globe that would prefer quality as oppose to quantity. All too often as a dealer I hear about how hard it is to keep up with the constant printing that modern day post offices are producing. Another promising move would be to produce material that appeals to the younger generations as opposed to what seems to be the same ol’ same ol’.

3. Celebrities –  Almost 70 years ago while FDR was bringing the country out of a depression and into a war, it was widely known that he had a love for philately and collecting. During a speech he declared that all US citizens should not only collect but also invest in postage stamps. Everyone from John Lennon to Freddie Mercury to King George V of England were avid collectors. Now more than ever the younger generations depend on celebrities for guidance and inspiration. If maybe  Brad Pitt or Daniel Radcliffe from Harry Potter and a few other prominent celebrities were outspoken collectors, then fans would be sure to follow their example.

    I have collected stamps since 1953.
    From 1975 to retirement 2010 I did little on my collection.
    I would like to sell my collection,since my two son’s have no interest in it.
