4. In my layman's opinion, you should REALLY stay away from stamps as an investment.

Now, I'm not an investor in stamps but I had inherited a reasonably nice stamp collection and was thinking about selling it recently. Lucky for me, there's a person nearby who gave me a very nice lowdown. I'd say more about why this person was qualified to say what they did but it would give too much away about who they are. Anyway, among all the other things I was speaking with them, my stamps came up and the person said "Look, the only stamps that are actually going to move in any kind of real context are stamps that are notable AND over a hundred years old. AND somebody's gotta want to buy them, AND there aren't a lot of those somebodies around."

That was it, in a nutshell.

Just sayin'
