Content Stamps which meet the criteria for being a postally valid issue, must also contain appropriate content. In general, in order for a stamp to be classified as a "soccer stamp" it must withstand the test of exhibitability. If a stamp could realistically be included in an exhibit of soccer stamps due to the stamp containing elements pertaining to soccer, then that stamp meets the definition of exhibitability. There are 4 guidelines used in order to help determine whether or not a stamp could be exhibited as a soccer stamp. Stamps must meet at least one of these guidelines in order to be included in the lists.
There still remains some subjectivity in determining whether or not a stamp is a soccer stamp. The vast
majority of stamps, though, can be included or excluded based on the 4 criteria. While these guidelines have
helped me define the scope of my collecting interests and as a consequence define what is present or absent
from this website, others may chose to broaden or narrow what they collect.|
