1974 Topps Stamps Phillies

The 1974 Topps Stamps set was released as a stand-alone set and not as an insert within packs of the flagship 1974 Topps set.  Stamps came twelve to a sheet and there are 240 unnumbered stamps in the entire set.  I have the ten Phillies stamps from the set, but I'm still trying to track down the Phillies stamp album issued to hold the team set.

All the players in this set can also be found as Phillies in the 1974 Topps set.  The photo used for Wayne Twitchell is the same one used for this 1973 Topps card.  My scanner didn't cut off the Billy Grabarkewitz stamp - it's just cut that way.  A quick Google Images search for the same stamp shows that Garbarkewitz must have been on the edge of a stamp sheet, and all images I've found show the same borderless left side.

Cool stuff. I wonder if these were regional, because I never saw these when I was a kid, or even had the slightest clue that anything like this existed.

Cool. I've never seen these before in my life. But now I desperately need them!

Ain't life funny like that?

Always loved stamps/sticker sets.
