Philately, the collection and study of postage stamps, has become an increasingly popular hobby in recent years, especially since letter writing has declined due to the technology age. The American Philatelic Society, or APS as it's commonly referred to, has around thirty-two thousand members in more than one hundred and ten countries. The American Philatelic Society is the largest non-profit organization for stamp collectors in the world. Besides coins, philately is one of the most popular types of collecting hobbies to date.
Cherrystone Auctions is one of the global leaders in selling stamps. Their online auctions offer rare and high quality stamps. Online auctions have become more popular with the increased interest in the hobby, the biggest draw being that the collector can buy and sell from the comfort of his own home without having to be physically at the auction house.
