Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Came across this video, a program on Agassi's school on Australian Channel 7. Some great clippings of Steffi (after 8 min). She looks great in the one with a black hat and carrying Jaden and the one at the school, didn't see those clips before.

They obviously took it off the web.

There is a shortened version still available, but it features only Andre, Steffi does not appear in the clip.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

There is a lot of such "commemorative stuff" on the market. Stamps, coins, cinderellas, etc., etc.,...

The companies in that field and even many official postal administrations really have learnt how to squeeze money out of collectors and fans. Regarding national postal administrations it started in the 60s in the former Soviet Union, where issued stamps where part of the political propaganda, thus they were big, colorful, and issued in a high number in many different sets. Shortly afterwards the "capitalistic world" copied the idea, but mainly in order to make money, political propaganda wasn't the main intention here. In the 70s and 80s it was mainly some countries in Africa, Asia, and South America which issued a lot of big and colorful stamps without any really collector's value. In the 90s also many European postal services jumped on this bandwagon (e.g. Germany and Sweden), issuing lots of more or less tasteful stamps. The only reason for this is to squeeze money out of inexperienced collectors who think that they buy something that will increase its value in the future (which literally never happens, quite the opposite). In principle the same also applies to all the other stuff, coins, medals, etc..

So, to make a long story short ... there are many stamps and coins with Steffi on them, and nothing speaks against collecting them. BUT be aware that most of the stuff is mass-produced, without any material collector's value. So don't let you getting tricked into believing that these "memorabilia" are something special. On the other hand, those who like to collect such things can built up a collection at a cheap rate.

OK everyone, hope you can see this video this time before it is taken off, someone uploaded the Australian Channel 7 video on youtube.

FYI, Steffi appears only in a few clips, after 8 min mark.
