The Most Influential People in Philately. Period.

Linn's Stamp News Most Influential Philatelists


From time to time, we choose to invest our own time and cost into preparing special FREE publications, intended to celebrate special events, milestones and individuals.

These publications are included for all subscribers of Linn's Stamp News and Scott Stamp magazines as our way to show our thanks for your support.

In 2021, we set out to identify the most influential people around.

We turned to our vast network of dealers, collectors, auctioneers and more to help identify lists of individuals whose names we'd put up to a public vote.

And then we invited you to cast your ballots.

And you did.

The results were overwhelming, but when the dust settled, the most influential were left standing.

In early 2022, we brought this issue to life featuring the most influential living philatelists -- according to you.

This 2022 edition of Linn’s Stamp News Most Influential Philatelists and Their Epic Stamp Stories recognizes 76 individuals with this 116-page special edition who have had an impact on the hobby in the past couple of decades.

About Linn’s Stamp News & Scott Stamp magazines

Celebrated as the leading magazine for philatelists, Linn's Stamp News was first published in 1928 by founder George Linn. In 1942, Amos Press (now known as Amos Media) got into magazine publishing with the acquisition of Linn's Stamp News. The tradition lives on today alongside our most popular monthly magazine Scott Stamp monthly.

You can subscribe to Linn's Stamp News and/or Scott Stamp monthly magazines. Choose from weekly or monthly frequencies, available in print or digital formats for your convenience. Amos Media is the operator of Amos Advantage, and is also well-known as the longtime publisher of other leading enthusiast titles such as Coin World magazine and the Scott Catalogue.
