About US Stamps
Are you a philatelist? You are if you collect U.S. stamps—or any stamps for that matter. eBay is one of the best sources for adding to your collection. U.S. stamps can be valuable investments, but they can also become family heirlooms passed down from one generation to another, even increasing in value over the years. Philatelists are especially interested in mint U.S. stamps because they are in the best condition and command the highest prices. Some philatelists collect specific types of U.S. stamps. Those honoring political figures, entertainers, authors, botanicals, or even supporting causes, such as cancer awareness and literacy, are popular collectibles. Some U.S. stamp collections focus on a particular era or decade, such as those released in the 1960s, or those that commemorate the date of certain events. However you choose to build your collection, eBay is an excellent resource for those rare and hard-to-find additions.
