I collect stamps of other countries which have an Irish theme. This means I had to check thru the most recent edition of “Collect British Stamps” (Stanley Gibbons) to make a list of British stamps, which have a connexion to Ireland.
In May 2013, Britain issued this set of eleven stamps. I bought two sets from the “Royal Mail” in Belfast yesterday. The Presentation Pack arranges the eleven footballers as in a traditional team photograph. The Miniature Sheet (which I did not buy) emphasises this.
The bonus for me here is that there are three other Manchester United players in the set. And I have some great Manchester United postcard on which they will look even better.
The other stamps have no interest for me. I will use them on Christmas mail.
