Nicaraguan (Correos '95) 1995 Korean Baseball Championship stamp set

I bought these on ebay last year for about $35USD and they appear readily available. These would look cleaner but my scanner needs to be replaced.

These were released by Correos of Nicaragua in 1995. All eight teams of the KBO in '95 make up this stamp set with 9 stamps per team (8 players, 1 mascot). For each team, players make up the outside border and the mascot is in the middle. The players name is in full Korean as well as the family name and first two initials in English. At the time of this post I have forgotten to scan the back. I will include one later. On the bottom of the sheet it says in Korean, Korea Pro Baseball (한국프로야구). The photos are of games played in Korea, during the season I'd assume.

I may consider breaking up a team set to get a player graded by PSA (maybe Jong-Beom Lee, Min-Tae Chung or Ki-Tae Kim). I have a Mattingly Grenada stamp graded so hopefully they will grade these as well. I will even see if I can add this to TCDB but I have a feeling it's not allowed since these are stamps. I added the checklist for this stamp set to TCDB located here. It is listed under Oddball (as is the Grenada), not Korean League.

  1. These are way too awesome to break up to get one stamp graded.

  2. I wouldn't break them up. I'd leave them intact - I'm not sure if PSA grades whole stamp sheets but that could be an option if you insist.

    I have a bunch of foreign baseball stamps from through the years. I think I have a few of these, but I don't know where I picked them up... possibly at a stamp shop in Korea.

  3. I just called PSA and they do grade the Grenada stamp sheets so maybe one day I'll try to grade one of them. Jason told me TCDB was trying to get away from not adding anything other than cards but I will try to add the CL I made for these.
