Philacon '91

The First National Philatelic Convention (PHILACON '91) was held at the Manila Central Post Office from November 27 to 29, 1991.

There were 10 participating stamp clubs: APO Philatelic Society, Baguio Philatelic Society, Cebu Philatelic Society, Chinese Philatelists' Club of the Philippines, Clark Stamp Club, Filipino-Chinese Philatelic Society, General Santos City Stamp Club, International Philippine Philatelic Society, Philippine Philatelic Auction Club, and Quezon City Philatelic Society.

Shown above is the exhibition sheet on a cover of the Cebu Philatelic Society with its seal and a San Juan de la Cruz stamp cancelled by the Cebu City Post Office.

The sheet was issued earlier on October 20 by the Philacon committee (hence, it's marked Not Valid for Postage) to help raise funds for the convention.
