Gandhi Memorial Stamp folder : A Hobby in Decline. - Part II

Hello Gandhi Philatelist,

As I mentioned in my previous blog post that value of Gandhi Stamps and Philatelic material is not appreciating at all and it's on decline path. ( A Hobby in Decline!! )

Here is another example of Gandhi 1948 stamps with folder and documentation from paper and Indian Embassy.

This memorial stamp folder was sold by ebay id "ktsun00" from Holly Springs, NC with all 4 mint stamps was sold only for $215.!!! and that's also in auction with last 2 bidders bidding at last second to get maximum benefit in pricing.!!

Can you believe this.!!? In past I had seen this folder selling for very high price(not sure why, but you can guess!!) Even used 1948 stamp were sold for more price then this.!! In past it was sold between $600 - $137.!!(of course without all documents.!!)

Please read following series of my blog post  to understand what is going on stamp collecting world specially in Indian Philatelic material with 1948 Gandhi stamps.

10) 1911 First Aerial Post - Allahabad - Indian Philately Exposed - Part IV

After reading all of the above blog post in which very very high price was paid for 1948 Gandhi stamps cover and falsely inflated price, don't you think this cover was sold at very low price.?

But I think this is the real price as very less collectors are involved in collecting 1948 Gandhi stamps. Also now new collectors are getting into this hobby, but there is a huge push to create a glorification of 1948 Gandhi stamps from India on FDC as well as used on cover.
