藉集郵增廣見聞
集郵泛指郵品的搜集,郵票以外,首日封、小全張、小型張、郵戳,甚至掛號信退回的收據都成為收藏家的目標。自小學時期已迷上集郵的布約翰郵票拍賣公司總裁鄭奕翀(Philip)指出,認識郵品是增廣見聞的最佳途徑。「八、九十年代,學校很鼓勵學生集郵,因為郵票猶如國家、地區的名片,設計能表現地方特色,如中國的名山大川、香港的獨有建築、亞熱帶島嶼的罕見雀鳥等。小時候的娛樂並不多,而彩色印刷的郵票很美觀,讓我培養出集郵的興趣,並透過興趣小組、與筆友交換及拍賣行等途徑收集精品。」據Philip憶述,89年時曾與內地筆友以書信交換郵品,卻在半年後才得到回覆,事後才得知對方因「六四」而不敢與外地通訊,這些有趣的故事令他非常回味。
