    THANKS for the quick reply. No problem. However, not everything goes UP in value. I've seen baseball cards go down over time (other sports may also, but I don't collect them). On "ANTIQUES ROAD SHOW" I've seen many items go down, from their original "value" to a closer time now. Also, like you said in post #1 about not collecting (nor knowing the "value"), I don't collect "stamps" (nor know their "values"). You may want to consider putting on POST #1 the least in "value" you'd want for them. Hope you can get what you want. Have a good night, Rodney

    NOTE: A great example of "going down" in value I think was either a 1992 or 1993 TOPPS Brien Taylor (I think that was his name) "RC". He was a draft of the YANKEES. His first card had a "value" of $80 (and he hadn't even made it to the MLB). His 'value" went almost totally after an injury. I don't think he ever made it to the MLB. That cards "value" went down very quickly down to approximately seventy five (.75) cents.

    Based on the little research I've done, I couldn't imagine stamps falling into one of these cateogires or following the trajectory of Brien Taylor (nor did they have any bad games). Just searching a few of them on auction sites tells me that much.
    I don't necessarily care about getting a high value or even retail value, but I do know I don't want 5-10% of the original value in return.
