Stuffed Blue On eBay

There has been so little in the way of large Blue collections on eBay recently, I find that I am going weeks without remembering to check for anything new. Fortunately, Jim Jackson of the Big Blue blog fame, alerted me to a listing with the title "1841-1939 worldwide collection - 28,000 stamps - Scotts International Album." The sellers is asking $28K for the collection but will accept counter offers.

This is one of those albums in a single binder that is stuffed to the brim with many stamps mounted in the margins. Thus 28,000 stamps does not translate to 28,000 spaces filled. Still, I think it is worth logging on eBay to see this rather unusual Blue Volume One collection.

That's got to be one of the best pics of a stuffed Big Blue ever! ;-)

Jim, I absolutely agree. I could have included a picture of an actual page from the album, but I couldn't take my eyes off the stuffed binder. Like someone trying to stuff a hamburger with 4 patties into their mouth.

Wow. I looked, and this is an amazing album, has some hard to locate items, but missing the rather easier things, like Austrian semi-postals. There are a lot of duplicates of very early issues, all possible varieties etx.
