What will our collections be worth 10, 20, or more years from now?

 

I wonder some time about if our collections will be worth anything years from now. I don’t think that patch trading will go away. But will there be a demand for the rare items?

 

Five years from now will a new scout member of Santee Lodge even consider collecting ALL the Santee issues? Or will things like the Arrowhead, Black Twill, etc just be so far out of their reach that no one wants them??

 

What does everyone else think?

Five years from now? How about now? Who new to the lodge in the last five years appears to be building a serious collection like we did? Do they still do that? There have been a considerable ammount of 70s and 80s stuff on Ebay recently and it seem a lot of is is going unbid. Maybe I’m off base here (I lack the time to really pay close attention) but we may be there now.

Ofcourse my feelings are that interest wax and wane, so this observation may not be anything other than that.

I’ve noticed that too about the Santee Fellowships. They are selling for a lot less than I would have thought. Some are selling for what we were paying for them 5+ years ago!
