UNCLE SHELBY is the oldest living person I know personally. He hates most new things, but has been fascinated for months that I sell stamps "to the whole world" on the Internet. Every week he comes, driving his 1953 Oldsmobile '98 (two-tone, green and white) that looks like it came off the showroom floor. In February, 2000 he tells me the following: in November and December of 1999 he calls 3 of the largest stamp firms

After 8+ years, by April of 2008, he's given me over 43,000 glassines with more coming each week. All are USA and possessions from the first 100 years of stamps! Most 19th century. I must say, condition varies from "spectacular" to "not so good", but I can't imagine many disappointments.

June 30, 2011 UPDATE! UNCLE SHELBY HAS NOW DELIVERED
OVER 58,400 GLASSINES TO DATE WITH STILL MORE TO COME!

Any item or lot described with faults is not returnable because of faults. Lots with 10 or more items are not returnable for any reason. Requests for expertising extensions must be approved prior to placing your bid so the sale can be held open if the consignor agrees. Please allow sufficient time for the approval process, especially if a weekend is involved, since we are seldom available on Friday-Sunday.

Given repeated abuses by non-paying bidders with few or zero positive feedbacks, we now require all bidders to have at least 10 positive feedbacks from at least 3 different vendors. Exceptions are made only with prior approval. California residents must pay 8.50% sales tax. Thank you.

Now let the parade of Uncle Shelby's stamps continue! His lots have been numbered 1, 2, 3, etc... consecutively until he runs out! For the foreseeable future, Uncle Shelby lots will be listed on Thursday and Sunday nights.
