...when it comes to adventure, thrills, and romance with America's greatest hobby: stamp collecting
Ummmm...I'm not sure I get the connection. Are there postage stamps which depict pirates in frilly undergarments? Or eating bon-bons while watching their 'stories'? Is this all an insidious plot by the ninjas to discredit their sworn enemies
, under the guise of philately?
I believe they're alluding to the globe-trotting habits of pirates, who visit exotic and varied locations around the world, and that a stamp collector has a far greater range than a hijacked schooner staffed by privateers. Frasek Company was a minor supplier of stamp collecting supplies in the 1930s, which is why this (quite tiny) ad appears in a 1939 issue of Radio Guide
