Stamps from San Marino Senegal Morocco :This is why collector quit Gandhi stamp collection.!!

Hello Gandhi Stamp collectors,

Following is the main reason why new collectors are not coming to Gandhi Stamp collection.

Seller "phil-centre" from UK is trying to sell Gandhi FDC and FFC for unbelievable price.

San Marino First Day Cover is selling for $123.!! It should not be more than 2-3$.!!!

Senegal Gandhi First day cover is also selling for $123.!! It should not be more than $5 as it is without cachet.

Lufthansa First Flight Cover with Morrocco Gandhi stamp for $81!! Not sure whether this is Genuine or FAKE(might not be travelled on First Flight or even never went through flight at all!!)

Disclosure : I own all 3.!! but I regret now.!! So trying to educate other new collector so they can learn from my mistake or just can think about it.!!

When new collector see this price and find it cheaper on eBay or delcampe they think it as a very good price.!!

Also this kind of pricing makes them think GANDHI stamp collection is incredible were FDC and FFC prices are very high.!!

But they might don't know that this is one of the way to cheat.!!

Do you think this are valued what seller is asking for ?

I don't think so.!!

So stay away from any Gandhi First day cover when they are asking more than $5.!!  except India Gandhi FDC were the price should not be more than $2 except 1948 Gandhi FDC.

So BEWARE what you are collecting and why are you collecting and at what price.!!

Read my following blog post to understand about stamp collection in DECLINE.!!

1) A Hobby in Decline : 1948 Gandhi USED cover case study.!!
2) A Hobby in Decline.!! - Part-2
3) How to invest when philately price is dropping.

If you see stamps are not even selling or selling like 5-10 times lower their value than mentioned in catalog.!!

There is nothing RARE or Scare in philately because this hobby is in downward trend because experienced collectors are loosing interest because value is not appreciating and new collectors are not coming in to this because there are lot of other things to do for them such as playing video games on Nintendo or X-box , social networking on facebook or google+ or  surfing on web through internet or SMS through iphone or android or watch games such as cricket, football or basketball.!!

Only way philately can sustain is to stop cheating in this hobby. Yes CHEATING.!! which is what you will see in order to increase value artificially by inflating the price by SHILL bidding, not paying to seller or mutual understanding cancelling transaction and lot more.

To know more about this kind of activity read my following blog post and think what are the possibilities in cheating, glorification, SHILL bidding, FAKE, Forgery etc.

8) Indian Philately Exposed - Part II
9) Gandhi SERVICE overprint stamp price fell from $1009 to $1.!!
10) How can you tell that Gandhi SERVICE stamp is FAKE or Forgery ?

I hope all the above will help while making decision in investing stamps and to avoid getting CHEATED.!!

Now don't you think it does NOT make sense STAMP INVESTING!!

Also don't you think it does NOT make sense to collect all thematic stamps because it will keep coming.!!
