List of Most Collectable Postage Stamps of Recent Years

Recently I have fallen in love with collecting postage stamps issued on same theme by different countries. These may include joint issue stamps with same or different designs by two or more countries like Slovenia-Slovakia joint issue or Pakistan-Belarus joint issue set. In most cases,
Another more challenging variation of these issues is the collection of postage stamps issued on same theme by different countries without any coordination among themselves, thus ensuring different designs of all stamps. These may include stamps issued to commemorate the memorable event of , or 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia, etc.

Some of my favourite topics from recent years are as below (You can click on the links to see the list of stamps):

As the collection grows, it turns into a fascinating collection to brag about.

Challenges in Collecting Stamps on Same Themes:
  • Not-Well Documented: While joint issue stamps are well-documented and easier to find, these themes are often not listed properly. 
  • Difficult to Find: In most cases the countries issuing joint issues sell the stamps of other country as well to help the philatelists, which is never the case in stamps issued on same theme by different countries.
  • Issues from Very Hard Countries: Some of these stamps are issued by very small countries, which can prove quite a pain to find.
  • A few Very Expensive Issues: To cash on the opportunity, some countries issue these stamps at exorbitant prices, which becomes tough for the hobby collectors to lay hands on. In some cases, the stamps or souvenir sheets are issued in very low quantity like 100, 200 or even 500. This gives the opportunity to the dealers to hoard the issue and sell the subsequently at a very very high price.
Do you collect such common topics stamp issues?? Which are your favourite themes??
