Topicals - Sport on Stamps

2/03/2012     General

With a constant proliferation of new issues, forming a worldwide Thematic collection, particularly on a subject as popular as SPORT, can be a little too much to take on!

Ever since the first Greek Olympic Games set, issued in 1896, collectors have been enchanted by sporting endeavours on stamps. Even now, sedentary philatelists can recall their favourite sports, sporting events and sporting heroes, and can pleasurably engage with them through their hobby.

Extensive recent sets, miniature sheets and sheetlets provide collectors with a more than ample choice. Of course, one way to limit the scope of a collection is by selecting geographical boundaries.
