This is an older thread that somehow came back ... Still worth ordering?
I completely missed this the first time around.
Unless the cost of mailing has gone down without anyone noticing or the price of the collection has gone up, the answer is 'of course'.

i see 22 stamps for $26.23 ?
Not sure where you are seeing 22 (are you just counting the stamps shown on the cover of the envelope?)? There are 43 stamps: 1 Tommy Douglas medicare, 8 + 1 sheet (8) CFL, 4 + 1 (4) zodiac, 9 + 1 (9) grey cup.

Thanks, did not know the sheets are also stamps...
So 0.61$ per stamp, not bad :)

Can you use clear tape on the stamps since these aren't stickied on the back?

EDIT: Some are stickied on the back some aren't

I don't think you are supposed to use clear tape as they need to cancel the stamps, but I have seen postal clerks doing it. Some stamps in this pack need to be licked/watered (souvenir sheets), the loose ones are stickers.

You can still lick them can't you? Tape???
You guys don't like licking stamps now? Going to pass away from a stamp-related illness like George's fiance?

I'm in for 3 packs. Site gave me lots of trouble processing my credit card but it finally worked after I kept pushing on.

You will likely be charged multiple times.

No offense to anyone, but as I was reading the comments about struggles to get some of these stamps to stick... it was the funniest stuff I read all day ;)

It's like those jokes and skits people used to make about older people struggling with new technology. Old is new again, and applying stamps is dying art :) Thanks for the laughs.

Would you mind to suggest a better way to peel those stickers? Sometimes they are so easy to peel, but the odd time is so hard!
