The act of collecting stamps started when the first initial stamp was released and was known as Penny Black which appeared in 1840 and was created at the beginning of Queen Victoria’s reign, the stamp is said to resemble the young monarch. By 1860 there were thousands of stamp collectors and dealers around the world.

At Mesa Stamps, we provide collectible Chess stamps for stamp collectors. Many of this one of a kind Chess stamps depict an array of colors, designs, and themes. Some of our best Chess stamps include "World Chess Congress", "Chess players" and "Capablanca Chess Champion of 1921".

With around 48 rare Chess stamps to choose from you're certain to find some great choices to add to your collection. These stamps come from countries like Cuba, Bulgaria, Cambodia and many more.

The purpose of stamps was originally to serve as a label, this allowed for the mail to be prepaid by the sender. Only with the introduction of specific rare collections was the act of collecting introduced. Be sure to check the condition of the collectible Chess stamp. A never hinged stamp is a stamp that has never had a hinge attached to it. Not hinged stamps are seen as more preferable than hinged stamps, even if it is the same issue, this is because they are seen as being in a fresher state. This fresher state is because the not hinged stamps are in the same condition as they were when originally bought at the Post Office. Here at Mesa Stamps, we offer not hinged stamps ranging from $0.30 to $48.95.
