The DanTheStampMan.Com Story

I started DanTheStampMan.Com in 2001 after my father passed away after a long battle with cancer. He was a life-long stamp collector. Growing up, I had no real interest in collecting stamps, but my sister and I made some extra money by helping my dad sort and soak stamps for his collection. Sometimes my dad would trade some of his stamps with other collectors, but he did not have any interest in the business end of stamps.  As a kid, there were always boxes of stamps hanging around, albums, and his den was always overflowing with stamp stuff. I have been around stamps all my life.

After he passed away, I received some of his collection to liquidate. I found selling stamps was something I really enjoyed while at the same time having a connection to my father. Combined with my years of customer service and technical skills, I found it a very rewarding business to be in and it grew. Although not a collector myself, I do understand and appreciate the stamp hobby. It is more than just a business to me.

Fast forward to present day, and I have acquired many collections over the years which I break down and sell. I feel it is important to see every collection in its entirety before deciding on whether to buy or not. My staff invests a large amount of time photographing or scanning nearly every collection I sell.

Being honorable is important in any business, but more so for a stamp dealer where condition is largely subjective. You can count on DanTheStampMan.Com to always be fair and reasonable before and after the sale. More than 90% of my business is from repeat buyers, many of whom have been customers for many years. Our return rate is exceptionally low, but if you have a problem, we are always here to help.

While DanTheStampMan.Com is currently my part-time job (I am a full-time computer programmer working on Financial Systems), one day soon (hopefully) I plan to 'retire' from the Information Technology world and focus on stamps full-time.
