About Us

rogbonWe are Roger and Bonnie Riga, i.e., rogbon. We own and operate Rigastamps, specializing in stamps that most other dealers choose to ignore, the stamps not listed in Scott's Standard Postage Stamp Catalogue. We've been in business for over 35 years, participating in major stamp shows from coast to coast and building an extensive stock of poster stamps, foreign revenues, and other cinderellas. We also have our Papertigress division for the other collectibles which we have acquired along the way. For many years, we've been offering items for sale on eBay and other websites, both as Rigastamps and Papertigress. Before forming our business in 1982 we both had collected stamps since childhood. What began as a way to convert duplicate material into funds to expand our collections, soon became our driving interest. We both are active in all aspects of the business. For whatever else stamp collecting may be to a collector, it is first and foremost a hobby. As such it should be at least enjoyable and - dare we say it - fun. We try to make it so for our customers.
