American Philatelic Society

The Austin Texas Stamp Club was founded in 1938. Since then, many with interest in philately, from novices to more experienced collectors of all ages have gathered to learn about our hobby, trade stamps and to participate in many of the activities the club has to offer(see our Bylaws). Today the club has about 70 members.


The club welcomes anyone interested in stamp collecting!
Dues are $15.00 per year for adults, $8.00 for 18-year-olds and younger.

The Austin-Texas Stamp Club meets the first and third Tuesdays of each month. All meetings have a short business segment followed by a planned activity.

On the first Tuesday, we meet at the Lakewood Homeowners Association Clubhouse, 7317 Lakewood Drive, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm – This meeting is an auction of member-submitted lots. The Auction is generally 50 to 90 lots consisting of a great variety of stamps, albums, covers, etc. Prices range from a minimum of $1.00 to several hundreds of dollars; normally 60 to 70% of the lots sell. We setup the auction at 7:00 pm, bidders view the lots, and after the short business meeting at 7:30 pm, the bidding begins. Club-owned copies of Scott catalogs for the last two years are available for members to peruse and check out. Boxes of stamps are available for members to buy US and foreign stamps cheaply.

On the third Tuesdaywe meet via Zoom. Meetings feature presentations by club members or others about stamp-related subjects. We expect at some point, to meet again face-to-face. When that happens, we will update this message.

See our Program Calendar for meeting details.

Questions about an inherited collection? Generally, if you live in the Austin area, the best idea is to bring some of all of the collection to one of our meetings and let us give you an estimate of the value (in broad terms) and advise you on your next step. You can also send images of the collection to Mr. Boardman at his email address above. At the meeting or by email, you will receive a review of what you have at no cost.
