The Great American Stamp Show 2021

By all reports, the 2021 version of the Great American Stamp Show was a success. Lots of exhibits, dealers, and camaraderie by all those who attended. The Philatelic Gourmet received a silver medal in the Literature Competition. Unfortunately, the judge’s comment was sparse and offered little in the way of ideas for improvement. Palmares are at these sites: 2021-Palmares.pdf (stamps.org) (exhibits) and 2021-Literature-Palmares.pdf (stamps.org) (literature).

The 2022 Great American Stamp Show will be held August 25-28, in Sacramento, CA. More details will be provided as they become available.
