Does anyone know where I can buy large amounts of space stamp sheets? We're talking 25-100+ of identical sheets.

I have fun using space stamps for my mail. The ones I found "easiest" to buy in sheets are the .18 Shuttle stamps. There are eight different stamp images on the shuttle stamp sheet.

I try to buy on eBay at or slightly above face value. However, I sometimes have to buy other stamps with the shuttle stamps to get the shuttle stamps if that makes sense to you.

Interesting question. This eBay lot of 100 Apollo 8 stamp sheets might be of interest.

The (pristine) Apollo stamps are $400 face value with a first bid of only $475. Less than 17 hours to go in this EBay auction.

Rich, I've got hundreds of unused mint stamp sheets of the famous Apollo 15 "moon rover" twin 8-cent stamp issues. I can also beat any ebay and/or other current auctions for buying bulk space stamp sheets. Let me hear from you.
