7 Minute Miles


I’ve been a stamp nerd since I was little, thanks to favorites like the 1968 Walt Disney and the 1974 Mineral Heritage: Amethyst stamps. One of my uncles gave me a first day cover subscription to the Postal Commemorative Society when I was ten years old. I maintained the account until February 2011, when I couldn’t keep up with the cost. My collection has been scanned and is available to view by year:
