Hello,

I am a FDC collector, have been collecting for many years but mainly focus on UK, China, especially those from the 60s, 70s, 80s.

Now, I have moved into the realm of collecting signed FDCs by the stamp designer or well-known people. I have started my blog http://signedfdc.blogspot.com/ and will be posting more covers to share with everyone. I started collecting signed FDCs 3 years ago, initially the idea was to collect covers signed by people who have made great impact to the world but it would be an expensive hobby! Along the way, I "accidentally" bump into some designer signed UK fdcs, and ever since then I can't stop hunting fdcs at US, UK ebay. Another theme which I am into now, is to collect signed fdcs with stamps that depict paintings by the painter/artist (i.e. art series collection)...

I have not seriously started collecting Msia FDCs (have some, inherit from my uncle but in terrible condition). I am interested to know if anyone else collect signed Msia FDCs by designer, especially the 60s & 70s? Well, I am pretty tempted to start another collection!

Cheers,
Kok How

Bill took part in bridge tournament in Verona, 2006. I bought this from a seller, who also took part in the tournament. He took a photo together with Bill while signing the cards (can see he signed about 3 cards!). Anyway, Bill didn't win in the tournament.

It is nice to see so many new members introducing themselves. Perhaps some of the older members may want to put in a post to tell the others what they collect, their philatelic interests and perhaps a tip or two about philately.

Cheers
