It’s nice that there is a roadside attraction to bring people to this important charitable landmark, which recognizes Father Flanagan‘s contributions. You can also see the commemorative stamp that was released as part of the Important Americans stamps.

I don’t know why anyone would want to make a big ball of stamps but here it is. It even made the Guinness Book of World Records.

This is located in the visitors center of Boys Town. The story behind the ball is very endearing. Go to see the ball but stay and see Boys Town also. Your time will be well rewarded.

Can't say if this is a philatelists dream or nightmare, but it is one huge ball of stamps, and a quirky feature at the visitor's center

While visiting Boys Town, don't miss the World's Largest Ball of Stamps in the Visitor's Center. Interesting.

We went to Boy's Town to see the World's Largest Ball of Stamps as we did a family Spring Break road trip through Nebraska. While the ball of stamps is impressive, we were more impressed with what Boy's Town is and its history and what...More

The ball is completely made of stamps. My grandfather, Arthur Mason, is the one who started it. There is even a picture of him with the exhibit. He is the one with the really big ears. He loved stamps and would tell the grandkids all...More
