What's in your refrigerator?

Shown on the left is collector/dealer Steven Tan, 68, of Malaysia. He and the hobby were featured in an article that appears today in the on-line edition of the Malaysia Star.

“Really ? because that will keep them in perfect condition. Nowadays you have chemical free stamp albums, but it’s not the same."
