Like many of you, I’m a collector by nature… I’ve collected a variety of things over the years, including comics, coins, LP’s and even radio station bumper stickers.
I also collected postage stamps for a couple of years in high school, but once I went away to college and no longer had my “support group” , the stamp collecting fell by the wayside.
Stamp collectors have long specialized in collecting particular themes, countries, types of stamps, etc., mainly because there are far too many stamps for one person to collect… Just like card collectors might collect only parallel sets or Faux tobacco cards or whatever.
One of the themes I had when I was collecting stamps was sports-related stamps, and I’ve got two of those to share today; both are from 1969 and both commemorate the 100th anniversary of a major sports milestone.
Obviously the image on this stamp is meant to portray football in 1969, not 1869.
Like my card collection, my stamp collection is an unholy mess, but I’ll share any more sports-related stamps that I run across during the great clean-up process. I know that there’s a Canadian hockey stamp in there somewhere…
