This is too vague a question to answer. The value will depend on if we are talking about old US postage stamps with a baseball theme, or a type of sticker stamp found in gum and/or other premiums, or rubber stamps, etc.

Yes, you can use old stamps to mail a letter. However stamps that old had a particular value and it is likely they will be worth less than what it currently costs to mail a letter. It costs 49 cents to mail a letter, so if the value of the stamp is less than 49 cents, you would need to use multiple stamps on the envelope. The post office sells stamps in 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 cent denominations. The letter will be rejected and sent back if the amount of value of the stamps is under 49 cents.
