I want to start stamp collecting, can you help?

Question by Jimmy: I want to start stamp collecting, can you help?
I’m doing it for my two sons. The older one is 14 and the younger 8. I will go into this with serious money hoping for a long term serious growth in value. I know nothing about collecting stamps, so if you know that this is a worthless investment – please let me know.

IMHO Look around for some other stamp forums and do some research.
Think you’ll find most stamp collectors don’t do collect because it will appreciate; they do collect because they love what they are doing.
Won’t say it is worthless either. Just not nearly as easy or investment orientated as one might believe… everyone’s grandparent has a collection it seems, but the rare stamp is elusive at best.
Good luck.
