No other event can offer three grand awards (for National Topical Stamp Show, Americover and APS Stamp Show), three single frame grands, the World Series of Philately Champion of Champions, Most Popular Champion of Champions, the Youth Exhibiting Championship, a literature competition, and a Court of Honor including rare stamps such as the Inverted Jenny. Plan to attend to peruse more than 800 frames of world-class exhibits showcasing rare and interesting aspects of philately. Click here for more information about exhibiting forms and how to submit them.
The heart of the show is the bourse of 75+ dealers buying and selling stamps and covers ranging in price from a few cents to hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
On Saturday a cachetmakers bourse will be held where collectors may purchase cacheted covers sold by the artists. The APS will also sponsor Stamps by the Bucket and Covers by Container where youth may acquire a bucket of stamps or a container of covers for only $1 ($5 for adults).
