Although both parties will deny it, stamp collectors have a lot in common with some hardcore car fans. Think of the obsessive attention to detail, the arcane knowledge of products last usefully seen in operation decades ago, the desire to spend weekends with like-minded individuals discussing ephemera that sends the rest of the world to sleep.
So what better than some Top Gear stamps! Issued by the Isle of Man post office (sometime home to Jeremy)! The run consists of these six beauties - based on some of our more bizarre and ingenious motoring challenges over the years.
They're officially released on 5 November. You can find out more and buy the usual presentation sets at www.iomstamps.com.
Were you aware, until today, that there existed a stamp for the precise sum of £1.82?
