Making room for Wilt

This past week, the shipping manager where I work gave me several stamps he had clipped off the incoming mail. Among them was one of the Wilt Chamberlain stamps issued last year, a stamp that was previously missing from my collection.

I was naturally pleased to receive something new, but when I went to add the stamp to my album, I discovered I made an ironic mistake when creating the page: the spaces for Mr. Chamberlain’s stamps were too short!

While the error was amusing in a way, given the basketball player’s legendary stature, I would rather have everything consistent, and I’ve updated 2014 page 3 with spaces tall enough to contain the Chamberlain stamps.
