Would you like to know a little bit more about Henry and HGPi's history?

Physically, our stock spans over 15 rooms; -- one visiting dealer said we are the "Wal-Mart of the stamp world -- if you want it, Henry probably has it!". Some of our stock has been described and written up in the form of price lists. Because we freely distribute these lists to interested collectors, many people think of us in terms of the items on those lists. The amazing thing is that our price lists represent less than 20% of our entire stock! Most of our retail business is actually done through collector want lists. If you do not find a price list which interests you, please be sure to ask or send us your want list: we probably have what you are looking for!
Henry L. Gitner :
Henry has been an avid stamp collector for over 35 years. He became interested in stamp collecting at only 8 years old. His passion grew in these early years until, along with 2 other classmates in Yorktown Heights, he started a business selling postage stamps to collectors in 1975. The boys engaged in international advertising and mail order sales while still in high school, gaining the respect of several in the European philatelic community. That same year, at the record young age of 16, he was asked to manage the auctions for the American Helvetica Philatelic Society, a group engaged in the serious study of the stamps of Switzerland. He attended Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster PA taking primarily economics and business courses. Henry continued his business venture with an older colleague while in college. This became a full time occupation in Paramus, NJ. In 1981, Henry bought out his partner and moved up to Middletown, NY. He has been involved in all areas of the business, buying and selling and now primarily with buying and marketing. He is a member of the American Stamp Dealers Association, the American Philatelic Society and over 30 other specialized philatelic societies. Henry is well-known in the philatelic world to be very knowledgeable in many specialties of the stamp business and is often called upon for advice and expertise from all over the U.S.
And he now writes the "Stamp Tips" weekly in Linns Stamp News.
Debbie joined Henry & the company in 1985 as co-owner.
Under the direction of Henry is staffed people with over 80 years of combined experience.

Henry Gitner said the real question that needs to be answered is why people collect. In his opinion, one of the big reasons is history.
He said the classic profile of a stamp collector has changed, but leaders need to identify why people collect stamps. Gitner suggested that organizations do something with the History Channel because people who watch this television station are the same type of people who might become stamp collectors.
