Joplin Stamp Club Holds Annual Showcase




A number of postcards and stamps are put on display in Carthage for area collectors. The stamp club in Joplin hosted the event. 

Collectors traveled from the Four States to California to sell items they've had over the years. The exhibit featured stamps from a variety of topics such as U.S. Presidents, Sports, and animals.

Organizers say some of collecting stamps and post cards is much like other hobbies. 

"I started collecting when I was six, my grandmother was a collector and I started collecting stamps when I was age six; postcards at age five. And I got thousands of thousands of stamps," said Organizer Marlin Willoughby.

The annual event is held the first Saturday in the month of October.
