Bill Maher -- A CelebriGum Rarity

Even if you're not a stamp collector, you've probably heard of the famous misprinted 1918 airmail stamp:


Only one sheet of 100 upside-down airplane stamps was released; single stamps from this set now fetch close to a million dollars.

So I expect well-heeled CelebriGum fans will be driven into a frenzy by this remarkable one-of-a-kind photo of Bill Maher:


Christie's pre-sale estimate is $3.5 million. 

(Not the auction house; New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who's notoriously bad at guessing the value of upside-down pictures.)

  3. You've got to be kidding me. I just used one of those stamps to mail in my cable bill. I found it in an old shoe box my uncle gave me.

  5. Wait, something's not right here. How can you send a cable bill using a 24 cent stamp? Isn't it a crime to lie on the internet?

  6. I'll make sure the internet police only give you a warning this time. Also, what uncle is actually nice enough to give out old shoe boxes as gifts?
