Chicago Cable TV Covers AMERICOVER 2010

Click on the freeze frame above to watch a special one-hour edition of the "Philately Today" Cable-TV series, previewing AMERICOVER 2010, the 55th Annual convention and show of the American First Day Cover Society (AFDCS), which was held August 6-8, 2010 in Chicago.

The program, produced and hosted by Randall Sherman (the president of the host chapter for AMERICOVER 2010, the Chicagoland FDC Society), was aired live on the Chicago Access Network.

Sherman's guests on the program were six members of the Claude Reis Chapter of AFDCS, which is based in the Los Angeles area, who discussed first day cover collecting, their roles at AMERICOVER, special activities at the show (including a dedication ceremony for the Negro Leagues baseball stamps), creating their own covers and various noteworthy events in their careers as cover collectors.
