Why Collect Stamps? Stamp collecting is one of the most popular hobbies in the world. But why collect stamps? Aren’t stamps nothing more than pictures on small pieces of paper? In reality, stamps represent historical events, people, and places. It is a stepping stone to learning as much or as little about local or world history as you want. With the aid of an excellent stamp catalog, the world is at your finger tips -- its like visiting exotic places from your own livingroom.
