Rugby on postage stamps

Over recent months, I have added a few interesting memorabilia to my rugby collection. Some of the new items are: Sale Sharks rugby ball with autographs of the first XV, a few signed Aviva Premieship photos, and a match jersey from the under 20 Rugby World Cup signed by the champions who have recently beaten South Africa.

Today, I’d like to write about my other, quite unique collection which is growing fast, namely, rugby postage stamps. My philatelic collection consists of over 200 items from 30 countries, among them are some from the farthest places in the world. I have already mentioned my oldest rugby stamps in previous post, and today, I would like to show you some of the most interesting items. Almost all of them are in mint condition and entire collection shows rugby history in an unconventional way. Below you can find some pictures and if you have any rugby related collections please share them with us.
