This is an amazing movie find, especially for a stamp collecting movie nut (which I’m not but I can appreciate the passion).  Sixty pages of  blank squares, each ascribed with the name of a 1920’s – 50’s star, from Academy Award winners to TV stars, “The Young Set”, International stars, World-Famous Women, Animal stars, Shootin’ stars (Western), Symphony stars, Singing stars, Comedians  and every other category that Hollywood could possibly subdivide itself into.

The Screen Stars Photo Album was made in 1955 by the Harlich Manufacturing Co. of  Chicago and approved by the National Poster Stamp Society with “All Rights to Screen Star Stamps and Stamp Albums fully protected by Hollywood Star Stamps, Inc. in cooperation with the Stars, Studios And Motion Picture Relief Fund, Inc.”.

    This was one of my earliest eBay finds, like maybe in 1999. It looked like the real deal but I couldn’t really be 100% sure from the photos that it wasn’t a repro. But it was only 10 bucks so I decided to take a chance. I almost fainted when I opened it up. It’s in beautiful shape and there are at least 50 stamps that haven’t been glued in yet. Every page has a different theme and the artwork’s spectacular.
