For about six years Michael Baadke wrote the weekly Refresher Course for Linn’s Stamp News. When his roughly 270 columns were distilled down to a book, Linn’s Complete Stamp Collecting Basics was the result. In this must-have book, Baadke provides engaging primers of all aspects of stamp collecting.
