Teenager Collects MJ Stamps To Pay Tribute

A 12 year old boy in Kolkata has raised a collection of stamps of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Mohammad Faizullah, an avid fan of the legendary singer, takes pride in his special collection.

While fans of Michael Jackson around the world, normally copy his singing and dancing styles or dress like him as a mode of tribute, Faizullah has chosen a distinct way of collecting stamps featuring MJ.

According to Faizullah, he receives information about the new stamps via Internet and manages to gain access of the stamps from either friends or collectors in exchange of other stamps.

His passion does not end by just collecting the stamps. He also finds out the history associated with the printing of each of them. He keeps all the stamps neatly in an album. He calls his collection 'In Memory of Michael Jackson'.

Though Faizullah started with Jackson"s stamps, today his collection includes other legendary singers such as Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe.
