Ok, I have a hundred thousand low value stamps and still every so often I have to look at the box lots on eBay...i know the game and still I play...if you pay a little you are going to get junk...these guys are not fools..they are going to salt a few sets and covers in the lot along with stuff you will never get rid of..and yet..its in my blood..you aint going to find a $500 cracker jack prize in a 75 dollar box lot !

Those stamps that you can never get rid of could always be donated to a youth program like the cub scouts or boy scouts...did I ever tell you about the stamp program I am assembling for my local cub and boy scout troop?

Phil

It is in my blood also. The only thing saving me is that with work right now I do not have the time to cull through a huge carton or box, but every so often who can resist. I actually have had some good luck searching through some antique malls here

An addiction is an addiction Phil. I have it also - that's why I haven't ever been able to catch up!

Everyone is on this earth with a certain amount of work they need to get done. I'm so far behind in just catching up on my collection that I should live forever!
