World’s Largest Ball of Stamps – Boys Town, NE

August 26, 2010 – World’s Largest Ball of Stamps


I have been absolutely in love with stamps since I was about 10 or 11, and my mom showed me her stamp collection that she started when she was around my age.  Love love love stamp collecting!  And, of course, love to see quirky things.  So the World’s Largest Ball of Stamps was a definite must on our list.  I’m so glad we went and got to see it!  And got to see everything else like the exhibits and information at this little building as well.

For more information, here’s a little blurb of information from the website,

“Home of the world’s largest ball of stamps!

The Leon Myers Stamp Center is a museum and office located in the Boys Town Visitors Center. The Stamp Center promotes stamp collecting among youth and adults, and supports Boys Town programs by selling donated stamps.

Exhibits in the museum show stamps designed by kids, children on stamps, children’s fairy tales on stamps and a variety of educational and philatelic topics. The World’s Largest Stamp Ball, on display at the Stamp Center, is a favorite with children and adults alike. Next to the Stamp Ball, children can go though our “penny bin” and pick out colorful stamps for their collections. Learn more about stamp donations.”

“The road is long

With many a winding turns
That leads us to who knows where
Who knows where

But I’m strong
Strong enough to carry him
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother

His welfare is of my concern
No burden is he to bear
We’ll get there

For I know
He would not encumber me
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother

If I’m laden at all
I’m laden with sadness
That everyone’s heart
Isn’t filled with the gladness
Of love for one another

It’s a long, long road
From which there is no return
While we’re on the way to there
Why not share

And the load
Doesn’t weigh me down at all
He ain’t heavy he’s my brother

He’s my brother
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother”
