Yesterday a reader sent me this picture of 1972 Sunoco Stamp “Trader Wallets” and asked me if I knew their value. Since I had never seen them before, I had to say no. Sunoco did quite a job of marketing these stamps: in addition to the trader wallets, they also made stamp albums, team sheets, and update stamps available via mail order. I didn’t collect the stamps as a kid–I don’t remember there being any Sunoco or DX stations around my hometown–but if I had, I’m sure I would have wanted all of the accessories.
The two stamps in the photo marked “NEW PLAYER” are from the update set. The NEW PLAYER part detaches from the rest of the stamp along a perforation. You can see this in better detail in an earlier article.
I am still slowly adding pictures of the stamps to the Vintage Football Card Gallery. I am about halfway finished now–Atlanta through Miami!
