Deutsche Briefmarke Gandhi - Briefmarkensammlung

Hello Gandhi stamp collectors,

As you know I write about reality in stamp collection (Briefmarken sammlung) instead of glorification, following is one more reality.!!

Germany 1969 stamp sheet of 50 stamps of Mahatma Gandhi was sold under $5.!! Even after 42+ years philatelic collection is still available and it's not appreciating at all as you can see it's available at very nominal price.!!

You might see this kind of Gandhi stamp sheet selling from $30-$100 or more, but it's nothing but INFLATED price.!!

This is not first time I am seeing this kind of pricing for complete sheet of Gandhi but this is the real price.

If you see very high price of complete Gandhi stamp sheet then there are more chance of Shill bidding, Inflated price (higher start price) or FAKE bidding.

So beware what are you collecting. As per me stamp sheet collection is worthless as it require special album to store and also if you want to sell then extra postage is required. Not only that when you display in exhibit it will occupy whole page or might not even fit in exhibit requirement.

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

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.
