Mongolia issues stamp honoring sumo champion Asashyoro

Photo: Asa using his butler's duster as 'target practice'

Ok, I admit that I was an avid philatelist when I was in primary school. In plain english, I used to collect postage stamps. Fancy word for a mundane activity eh. But the quality of Mongolian stamps in those days was extremely good, and the artworks and topics they covered were particularly collectible.

I don't know if I would've gotten this particular set though. I am hoping that this particular photo on the left isn't going to be used in the stamp set.
