Show n Tell

The Stamp Collecting Report, I'm Lloyd de Vries.

Many stamp shows have exhibits  displays of mostly rare or unusual stamps. In some cases,
these exhibitions are competitive: there are rules to follow, and points are awarded not
only because of the rarity of the material, but also its presentation.

Its a lot of work... so I asked some top exhibitors, Why?

(Ron Klimley) It gives me an opportunity to get out and show what Ive done, and share
that with other folks.

(Charles OBrien) I love the challenge.

(Kristin Patterson) I have to do a lot of research, because I dont want to perpetuate the
wrong information, and I love doing that research.

(Tim Bartsche) By exhibiting, I learn more about my material than I would ever learn sitting
in a bunch of three-ring binders.

(Nick Lombardi) It helps me focus on my collecting areas and its just a lot of fun.

(Denise Stotts) Its just a lot of fun.

(Douglas Clark) I like competition.

(Cheryl Ganz) It just takes me to another level, kind of kicking it up a notch.

(Al Kugel) Its a challenge to be able to create something out of a shoebox full of covers
and a few notes, and make it into something that will educate other people when they see your
exhibit.

(Bethel Strosser) I exhibit because I want to attract other people into the hobby.

(Jay Stotts) I exhibit because it forces me to get my collections organized, find out what I
dont have, get that, and improve my knowledge.

(Ralph Nafziger) It helps me organize my collection, and also, I like sharing it with other
people.

(Tom Fortunato) Exhibiting is probably nothing more than adult show n tell, and I like to
show, and I like to tell.
