We Buy Stamp Collections 
Big & Small

The need for postage stamps in today’s modernized world is almost nonexistent. Sadly, the hobby of stamp collecting has suffered a decline in popularity from the days when our parents and grandparents were collecting stamps. This is especially true among the millennial generation, who are emailing their correspondence at lightning speed, and very seldom write & mail letters as older generations did.

Many of us have stamp collections that are collecting nothing more than dust in storage, instead of gaining any value. Along with the dust, there are environmental and atmospheric factors to consider when deciding what to do with a stamp collection. Stamps are easily damaged and devalued over time from dampness, humidity, as well as the fast-changing temperatures in the Midwest. Stamps in your collection that may have been valuable, are sadly worthless when left to the elements for too long.

Is It Time To Sell Your Stamp Collection?

  • If you are no longer actively collecting stamps,
  • it is probably time to consider selling.

Perhaps you’ve already resigned to sell your stamp collection or parent’s stamp collection, but aren’t sure who buys stamps near you, so that old box of stamps remains in storage with no use to anyone. Maybe there was a point you already tried to sell your stamps or stamp collection, only to find there was little interest and few resources in your area to inquire of. Did you ask neighbors, friends & family “Is there a stamp dealer near me that buys stamps?”.
