We all know Michel Jackson as the king of pop, but little do we know that he had a hobby of collecting antiques and his collection was worth more than a billion dollars. Some of his collections included French mirrors, furniture, porcelain figurines, etc.
Some of the celebrities who collected stamps were Amelia Earhart, Charlie Chaplin, President Franklin D.Roosevelt, John Lennon, Queen Elizabeth, etc. President Franklin D.Roosevelt was so interested in collecting stamps that he even drew sketches of the type of commemorative stamps which he wanted the Postal Service of the United States of America to issue in the future.
