2421. ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง Spice Girls Stamps Revealed By E Bay Seller.


New issues.

๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง Royal Mail

11 January 2024 - ‘Music Giants’, 9th issue, The Spice Girls - 10 stamps (2 se-tenant horizontal strips of 5) . 1 Prestige booklet sold for £23.70p, 1 miniature sheet and, doubtless, countless pieces of other trash such as ‘Collectors sheets’ and ‘Fan sheets’ ad nauseum. This endless, tiresome, banal and exhaustingly tedious series of issues continues giving collectors and the non-collecting public scintillating opportunities to flush large amounts of money down the pan. A seller on e Bay is offering the basic stamps for sale and thus providing a poor quality illustration of them as can be seen below. Rating:- 0.

  1. While I'm happy to see Les Spice get the honor, Royal Mail really just skipped an entire decade of amazing music talent with this issue. So many great acts from the 1980s - Eurythmics, Wham, Depeche Mode, Erasure, Pet Shop Boys, Bananarama, Rick Astley, Human League, Duran Duran, The Cure, Genesis, Kate Bush, Billy Idol just to name a very few - completely overlooked as Royal Mail jump from the mid-70s to the mid-90s. For GenX collectors like myself, a couple of music legends issues honoring acts from the 80s would have been a great nostalgia trip. Oh well, maybe next year Royal Mail will backtrack.

    1. Gene my all time favourite group will always be Genesis, I saw them live 4 times in 60's / 70's their shows would make an excellent issue.

  2. No backtracking thank you. If a worthwhile event of the 150th Birth Anniversary of Sir Winston Churchill is not commemorated on 30th November by Royal Mail I am sorry to say that my Great Britain collection will cease. Am no longer prepared to waste money on utter trash as the issue coming 11th January.

    1. I feel the same about the 200th anniversary of RNLI worth an issue IMHO
