    Found this video interesting. It's by a British stamp dealer and he discusses an argument that two of his customers had concerning First Day Covers. I don't collect them, but the argument that they had could pretty be considered for anything that you might collect.

    Bottom line from the discussion, "Collect what you like."

    That was an interesting video. It reminded me of the early U.S. Post Office phosphor coated stamps who's first day covers are also valuable. Sometimes they sit in bargain bins unrecognized and are a real find.

    My mother-in-law is one of those folks re: collecting Elvis. She doesn't pay huge amounts though... most everyone that knows her 'gifts' her with everything Elvis. Every year at Christmas, he can be heard from the ornaments... Blue Christmas among others...:singing::singing::singing:
