I started collecting stamps by cutting them off of envelopes and storing them in a box. One year later, I got a stamp-collecting starter kit for Christmas. I then started collecting more stamps, first day covers, and full sheets. I think stamps are cool, because they can have anything on them, from wars to super heroes. Stamp collecting is an exciting hobby.
