Stamp shows are the places where the collector gets to be immersed in the real world of collecting. Dealers provide all sorts of opportunities to pore over racks of individual stamps in search of the perfect acquisition. Other collectors provide a wealth of knowledge if one takes the time to enter into conversation. And some of the larger shows have an exhibiting component with the opportunity to show your best work in an organized way and possibly win the big hardware in the form of medals.
