"ASSOCIATED" STAMPS PAGE 2

 

 

 

 

 

 
ASSOCIATED STAMPS are those which are issued by Bona-fide Postal Authorities around the world, but whose CRICKET theme is not readily apparent - serious enthusiasts have researched the subject and found interesting "Associations" with the game, which are usually explained in the text.

{NOTE: Because so many issued stamps can be "Associated" with CRICKET, indirectly, or in some cases, obtusely, these items listed below give details ONLY as a reference, of issues previously discovered or researched by "ENTHUSIASTS". It is up to each individual collector to decide how far to go in the definition of "Associated" stamps - otherwise you may run the risk of lining the pockets of unscrupulous  dealers or agents who may find a way of "unloading" material onto a market which collects "everything". It is your choice!}
