Ohio Stamp Club Holds 85th Annual Exhibition

The Stamp Collectors Club of Toledo, Ohio held its 85th Annual Exhibition and Bourse last weekend and was featured in the Toledo Blade.

Staff writer Rick Baird reports that about 400 stamp collectors, hobbyists, and "even those looking to buy postage to mail a letter attended the event."

While there Baird interviewed club member Cliff Campbell, 75, who acknowledged that stamp collectors tend to be older, and their numbers are dwindling.

"It's not as popular as it used to be," Cliff is quoted as saying. "But then again, nothing is."

Because stamps were a part of Cliff's 50-year career as a postal carrier, he got interested in the hobby. Even though he retired more than two decades ago, his fondness for stamps hasn't waned a bit according to Baird.
