Welcome from Our Show Chairman

Fellow Philatelists,


Exciting opportunity for all exhibitors to try out that 2-3-4 frame exhibit you've been working on! 


The Rockford Stamp Club has announced the fourth annual “Rockford 2-3-4 Stamp Expo.” Our show will continue to offer exhibitors a venue exclusively for two, three and four (2-3-4) frame exhibits.


In the American Philatelic Society’s (APS) World Series of Philately (WSP), the 30-plus national-level shows, there are two major categories of competition:  multi-frame (up to 10 frames) and single frame. Smaller 2-3-4 frame exhibits can be overshadowed by well-developed 5-10 frame exhibits and usually are not considered for the Grand or Reserve Grand awards.


The Rockford 2-3-4 Stamp Expo is an annual venue that features these 2-3-4 frame exhibits in an open competition that will be evaluated by APS-accredited judges following APS guidelines and Exhibit Evaluation Forms (EEFs) with points.  The judges for 2020 are TBD.  


The coveted Rockford Sock Monkey Grand award will be given along with Large Gold, Gold, Large Vermeil, Vermeil, Large Silver, Silver, Silver-Bronze and Bronze awards, as per the APS Manual of Philatelic Judging and Exhibiting, Seventh Edition.  Awards offered by the Collectors Club of Chicago (CCC), the American Association of Philatelic Exhibitors (AAPE) and Women Exhibitors (WE) will also be available.


See below in our downloads section for the exhibiting prospectus and application, which is due January 15, 2019.  For more information, contact Show Chairman Tim Wait at t.wait@comcast.net or 815-670-58
