Visit the World's Largest Ball of Stamps
Attention stamp collectors, Nebraska is home to the World's Largest Ball of Stamps.
Set in western Omaha, this roadside attraction is located in the Leon Myers Stamp Center, part of the Boys Town Visitors Center – a 900-acre childcare facility founded in 1917.
What began in 1953 by the Boys Town Stamp Collecting Club became the World's Largest Ball of Stamps – coming in at 600 pounds, and measuring 32 inches in diameter.
The ball is said to include 4,655,000 canceled stamps, and was first featured in the “Ripley's Believe It Or Not” column in 1955.
