Stamp Collecting: Push For Stamp Investing

Last Updated on February 5, 2020 by sltv

Hello philatelists! Or, more appropriately, hello to dealers of valuable stamps! We welcome you to, where you may have the opportunity to monetize your lists of stamp collector leads, depending on the audience you serve. There are three segments to the stamp collecting universe:

  1. Youngsters, beginners and casual collectors: These are collectors of low-price, high-mintage stamps, usually of recent mintage. The low end of this market is represented by ads on the backs of comic books that offer 1,000 cancelled stamps for $1. These stamps are worthless except for the pleasure of collecting them. We are not interested in these kinds of leads.
  2. Serious collectors: This is an entirely different group. They tend to perform a lot of research before making a purchase. The research has two components:
    1. The characteristics of a particular stamp (year of mintage, size of printing, rarity, topic, country, part of a series, etc.
    2. The price action of the stamp. In the stamp industry, there is always a cohort of stamps that are just coming into favor. For instance, if you collect U.S. stamps, you might see stamps that are 80 years old just now beginning to appreciate. Your aim as a collector is to identify quality stamps that are just starting to gain in price. You would like to have a diversified portfolio of such stamps from a variety of nations and time periods. After a suitable holding period – it could be five years, 20 years, etc. – the stamps may have considerably more value. At that point, you sell them and begin the process again. By doing this on a rolling basis every year, you will have stamps in various stages of appreciation.
    3. Professional collectors: These are the big fish of the stamp world. They have fabulous collections of rare stamps that are insured for millions of dollars. You see these collectors at high-end auctions and stamp shows. They are likely to donate their collections to museums at some point, often posthumously. is interested in buying lead lists of serious and professional collectors. The reason is that stamp collecting has usually been a pull market – collectors create their own demand and seek out supply. However, there is also a push market that marketers pursue – creating demand through telemarketing and direct marketing. Push marketing of rare and semi-rare stamps only makes sense within the context of lead lists of individuals who have a known interest in the activity.
