For the same reason you'd purchase any other security.
Yeah, but others would probably be a better investment. I mean, how much do postage prices rise, over time? I'm guessing quite a bit less than, say, share prices, or even saving rates. So better put those 1,300 bucks in a savings or investment account and buy your stamps in 10 year time for market prices. K is right, it wouldnt be worth it.
Theres the emotional/instinctive side to human behaviour too, theres just not a lotta folk around who are the type to spend big bucks now to save a coupla measly cents a envelope in 10 years time.
