The Doctor Helps Your Letters Through Time and Space With These Official Stamps

[View All on One Page]

The United Kingdom sees your official Hobbit stamps, New Zealand, and raises you some Doctor Who.

A newly announced collection of stamps, released in conjunction with the show’s 50th anniversary, features all 11 incarnations of the Doctor. A second set will feature four Doctor Who villains, including the Daleks and the Cybermen.

Y’know, once these stamps come out in March, if any of our readers from the UK want to send us a postcard or something… *whistles innocently*

    Stamps are usually mailed to oneself on the first day of issue to make them more rare and valuable.
    When the Elvis Stamps came out, a lot of people mailed them to nonexistent addresses, so they’d be marked “return to sender – address unknown” and sent back to the return address.
    I’ll lay odds that if these come out earlier in the year, a great many of stamps will be bought, saved, and mailed out on postcards on November 23rd.

    Wouldn’t the stamps be cancelled and rendered worthless?

    I got the Hobbit stamps from my brother on the other side of the planet. He’s not a big enough Whovian to want these in return, unfortunately.

    Yes, you save some, mail off a bunch of others so the price of the ones you save goes up for future collectors.

    Actually, to an old-school stamp collector, canceled stamps are preferred. First day of issue stamps are even more rare, and in the cases I mentioned above, stamps canceled on a thematically important day, even more so.
