Hello
I have a sheet of Elvis stamps that I purchased on Jan 3rd 1993.   I then took the sheet to the Memphisost office where it was postmarked with the Elvis gates and dated the same day of issue.

After this I took it to a framer and placed in a sealed frame and it in perfect condition in a high end stamp frame.  

Is this considered a collectible?  If so, would you have any idea the value??

Best regards,

Answer
Todd,

Interesting that your sheet was cancelled on January 3rd, 1993, since the official first day of issue was January 8th, 1993.  A normal Elvis first day cover cancelled in Memphis on the 8th has a catalog (retail) value of $2, but this is different.  It would be pure speculation on my part to place a value on your sheet, but I would absolutely consider it collectible.
