inherited a few boxes of stamps and albums. One of them is titled Postal commemorative society Historic Stamps of America. It is completely full, and the stamps inside are in beautiful shape. My question is what is the best strategy for using these stamps in my collection? Should I just remove the ones that I need and discard/sell what's left of the Postal Commemorative Society album? Or is it more valuable as a complete album that I should not break up? And thus sell the entire completed album and use proceeds to add to my own collection. Even though most of the commentary and stamp descriptions are nice, I don't think I want to keep and display this Historic Stamps of America album. Any advice would be appreciated.

Here are the eBay listings for sale and sold. Almost no market for the albums. They are also heavy and pricey to ship. A couple actually sold! One for .99 plus shipping with 200 covers. What years and how many covers is your set?

Thanks for the info. Looks like it would be difficult to sell these albums for anywhere near what they cost. Plus there is that shipping cost for all the weight. By the way, none of mine are first day covers. They are just Individual stamps or sets of stamps with information and stories about them. They are nicely done but I'm not interested in keeping these huge binders around, so I'll take out the individual stamps and toss the binders. Thanks again for taking time to reply.
