President Noynoy Aquino inagural stamp cover

Last June 30, 2010 I was one of the few very lucky individual who bravely went to the Philippine Postal Corporation office at Liwasang Bonifacio  ( Despite being declared as holiday and the philatelic section might not sell any stamps ) to buy some commemorative first day cover of the much anticipated P-NOY Commemorative stamps. Unlike any other occasion, This is the inauguration of the 15th President of the Republic.

A limited commemorative inaugural stamp with serial number 1979 and a memorial stamp of former president Corazon Cojuangco Aquino issued last June 30, 2010

Braving the heat of the day , I arrived past 8:30 am at the Philatelic section of the Philpost , die-hard philatelists from all over the country and the world are awaiting for this special event in our country’s history.  I though that i was one of the early ones, but there are already several dealers and enthusiast who also went to the office even earlier.

Crowd buying the special commemorative cover

The Philatelic chief told me that , they are maintaining a skeletal staffs in order to sell these limited edition stamps.

In keeping with tradition, the Philippine Postal Corp. (Philpost) is issuing a a commemorative stamps  of president-elect Mr. Benigno “Noynoy”Aquino III. It has been part of Philippine Postal Corporation tradition that when there is a new president, Philpost  would come out with a new stamp issue.

The 50-year-old Aquino was officially proclaimed by Congress as the country’s 15th president yesterday. He will take his oath as president on June 30.The stamp might be issued after Aquino’s oath taking. “There is a protocol that we have to follow. The pictures of Senator Aquino that would be used in the stamp would depend on the photos that would be provided by president-elect Aquino’s staff.

Philpost employees enjoying a brisk sales from souvenir hunters, philatelists and even balikbayans

He believes the Aquino stamp would be a hit among stamp collectors, like the commemorative stamp for the 25 death anniversary of Aquino’s father, former Sen. Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr. issued on Nov. 27, 2008 and the collectible stamps for his mother, former President Corazon “Cory” Aquino issued on Sept. 8 last year.

The stamps bearing the image of boxing legend Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao and the late Iglesia ni Cristo head Eraño Manalo were also sought after. Carlos said they even had to reprint copies of the Manalo stamp.

Then, including a few employees of the Philpost, our group quickly hitch a ride  from a small van toward the postal station at the Luneta postal detachment (  near the Quirino grandstand where the Presidential inauguration )  .  We then quickly unloaded all the First Day cover and started helping the  employees  to sell their commemorative stamps.

A lot of souvenirs sellers from caps, button pins, umbrella, t-shirt , dolls etc… There are also some die-hard stamp hunters too! I was  still amazed that people still collect stamps . One of Filipinas Stamp Collectors’ Club officer Professor Marlon Vicente of Bulacan  took some respite and even joined the group , But before helping to sell the commemorative stamp cover . He quickly bought 20 pieces of FDC. According to him , He do not want to be left out in history.

Some present generation students which are used in the e-mail and texting though that we were selling stickers. It took us some time to convince these people. In fact the  Philpost issued only 2,000 pieces on these stamp. I was still wondering “why” limit these inaugural stamp covers to just merely 2,000 copies???? In fact during the past Presidential inauguration in the 1990’s the postal corporation would issue at least 50,000 to 100,000 sets????

Although this is a special issue, Issuing a very low quantity of these commemorative covers could even create a black market were the original Php 15.00 value of the cover may increase several times over!

This is a good news to the speculators and dealers, Since the issuance  of the limited edition cover. The price had already increase by at least  twenty (20) fold. However, For everyone to enjoy this so-called dying hobby . The stamp advisory committee should likewise refrain from issuing a very low quantity issue. In other South -East Asian countries like Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and Vietnam ( I am limiting  my comparison to South East Asia )  Selling special commemorative  and thematic issues are a Big Big business bringing Million of Dollars in revenues !

But here in the Philippines ? From what we have learned from an insider of the Philpost , a government corporation. The last time they got a hefty earning was in 2004 ????

Bonsai and Suseiki Alliance Show at the Circle

Suseiki is an ancient art of natural stone appreciation and collection in which started from China and spreading to Japan where it was improved  . Sometimes gathering stones from the wild  can be illegal or ecologically damaging to take large rocks from the natural environment or national parks. Many landscape supply centers sell large rocks, although you may have to spend time picking through them to find ones with character. Some curious rocks shaped like snakes, dogs, cats and animals were an instant hit among suseiki fanciers and collectors. Unique pieces are eagerly  sought after by collectors .

Natural stones neatly arranged and labeled  for judging

One day after the show opening,  The author hosted a group of photographers from Marikina and also toured students from the Far Eastern University about one  week later.

Toy exhibit at SM North EDSA

Tarpaulin poster with Die-cast model facts and trivias

Last June 19 and 20, 2010 . There was an exhibit of various toy collections at SM North EDSA . The show is quite similar with the ongoing Toy convention at SM megamall, minus the cos-players, daily raffles  and commerical sellers. The exhibit also coincide with ‘ Fathers’ day . with a short trivias on toy collectibles in the country.

Most of the collectors used their aliases rather than their real names, mostly known by their peers in the internet and cyber peers. This add mystery to their collections.

Ghostbuster famous Ectomobile -1 with Slimer

Just like in any other exhibit , proper labeling and presentation  is  important especially if you want to let observers  and masses  convey a sense of history or a bit of an info about your collection . Or maybe brag that it’s a complete set or it was sourced from far away wherever. The exhibitor  may also  want to answer all queries from onlookers. But since the exhibitor  can’t stay with your display all the time, these labels will help your admirers to learn more about your collection and answer some of their questions . Some exhibitor  also leave their contact numbers  maybe if they wanted to answer the questions of the people or just wanted to sell some of their excess collection.

sports  toy cars

Dozens of collectors from different parts of the country showcased their collection of toys , action figure among others.

Co -organized by Diecast  Car Collectors of the Philippines (DCPH).  The exhibit aim to generate awareness on this kind of hobby . Although there are a lot of collectors of die-cast models and cars in the Philippines .

The country still lagged behind some of Southeast Asia’s powerhouse like Thailand , Malaysia , Singapore. But there are a lot of serious collectors from the country whom are at par or even had better collections than their ASEAN counterparts! One example is Mjoinir V. Ong known to DCPH as Mechajol  that over 500 die-cast car model , 90% percent of which are beetle collectors’ item. On the  centerpiece of his assortments is his classic drag bus worth around 2,000.

Aside from maintaining an informative forum site, the club also organizes a swap meet among members and sympathizers of die-cast toys , This enable some collectors to meet members and have a chance to sell or swap their collections.

Congratulations !
