The George Brett Cup

The AAPE George Brett Cup is an award for top level 20th century exhibits. The first ever competition was held May 26-28, 2017 at the Rocky Mountain Stamp Show, and has continued there ever since. All exhibits of 20th century material that receive a scored of 93 points or higher in a WSP show during the last three years are eligible. Because 2020 and 2021 were mostly lost to the pandemic, 20th century exhibits that received 93 points or higher 2019 thru 2023 will be invited to the 2024 competition. Invitations are normally sent out in December.
