Here are some of the sports stamps available. There are more than is possible to show here, and most are inexpensive, with many costing just five pence (£0.05) each. If you are looking to fill gaps in your collection, or would like to build up a collection for a particular sport, please email me at alisonlever@yahoo.co.uk, and I can send you a longer list that is geared to your wants. I have lots of football stamps in particular, and also stamps for sports not depicted here, like Golf. (Please see Transport for Motorcycles and Motorcycling.)

The stamps on this page are a mix of postally used, mint, and CTO (postmarked neatly for collectors). Unless otherwise indicated, they are postally used, and especially selected for light postmarks. The postmarks will vary from the one in the picture, and you are welcome to a refund if you don't like the postmark. I have indicated where the stamps are CTO or mint.

Would you like to buy some stamps?

Ordering stamps:

To order stamps, just email me alisonlever @ yahoo.co.uk and let me know what you want. I'll answer as soon as possible. This may not be the same day, but you do get personal service, and I am happy to search for stamps on just about any theme. There are a lot more stamps in stock than is possible to show here, so it's worth asking about your particular interest.

Please allow £0.95 (95p) if you come from anywhere in Europe, and £1.50 if orders are to be sent elsewhere. The postage charge is the same however many stamps you buy. This means that it's cheaper to buy more than one stamp, because the cost of packaging and postage is less per stamp. This reflects the time spent ensuring that the stamps are packed so that they arrive to you safely - it takes about the same time for one stamp as for larger orders.

Your stamps will be sent as soon as I receive payment. You can return the stamps and obtain a refund if they are not what you expected. Paypal is preferred, though other forms of payment can be negotiated. Euros are welcome as well as pound sterling.
