Let me help you build your topical collection. Tell me what your topic is, and I will make a list and add it to my website.

When it comes to Ice Hockey, Peter Laimins has saved me the trouble by writing a Philatelic Catalog of Ice Hockey, which, in addition to postage stamps, includes Christmas Seals and Charity Labels. 

Of course, I suggest purchasing a Green's Catalog so you can see what your getting, or at least photocopying your collection, and I will avoid any Christmas Seals in your topic you already have. These topical collections and lists do not include many varieties, such as imperforates, and progressive color proofs which are in stock. My first request is for Santa Seals, so I wrote a comprehensive list of all Christmas Seals with Santa and made up a few sets to get started with.

Other topics well represented in Christmas Seals and charity labels include; Nurses, Hospitals, Angels, Children, Snow, etc.
