The late James Dean may be a Hollywood legend, but to the queue of ardent philatelists stretching outside the General Post Office yesterday, he was simply 'the guy who looks nice' on a new special edition stamp. Stamps marking the 1996 Olympics were the target for those who had lined up overnight, but collectors were only too willing to snap up the James Dean mementoes as well. Enthusiasts had to arrive early. Tong Chun-yin, who arrived at the Central post office at 7.30 am, was too late to buy special albums containing a full collection of United States stamps printed in 1995 - but he did get six sheets of Olympics stamps and five sheets of James Dean stamps. 'The Olympic stamps are neat and cool, each showing a different pose. But I'd also keep one with the guy (Dean). He looks nice, too,' said 13-year-old Chun-yin. Mechanic Yu Wai-ki had taken his place in the queue at 10 pm on Wednesday, and bought two albums and 10 sheets each of Olympics and James Dean stamps. 'I don't know him. I have never watched any of his movies,' Mr Yu said. 'I just bought them for collection's sake. My children and a good friend of mine are stamp lovers. I try to get a complete set for them.'
