I am pleased to announce that Bud is posting scans and comments about his completed Big Blue (Scott International Part I 1840-1940 Album) on my blog.http://bigblue1840-1940.blogspot.com/2016/09/buds-big-blue-introduction-and-index.html
Yes, all 34,700 stamp spaces are filled!
And all of Bud's Big Blue's filled pages will be scanned and shown!
It is expected that 3-8 country scans from Bud's BB will be posted every month.
This will be the first time that every page from a complete Big Blue has been scanned and published on the Internet. Moreover, Bud has been very kind to several of us over the past several years by sharing his experiences with completing the Big Blue and it is great that he is making this information public. I've been particularly curious about what Bud will do next. I'm not certain what I would do if my Big Blue was complete, so Bud's thoughts are especially interesting:
Although every space in my BB is filled, the activity of collecting goes on. Preening, that is replacing stamps lower in my preference list with stamps higher up, will continue indefinitely. Supplement pages will, no doubt, mushroom.
