This category has had a total of $75,515 in sales over the last three months. Sellers running auctions had a 54% success rate with 2,762 items sold for an average price of $26.04. Store items had an average price of $7.95 with 452 items sold.


This average price is higher than most other categories. Although the mathematical average is affected by the relatively small number of items listed there were some items selling for big $$ in this category.


If you look at the most expensive items in this category you will see that most of them are Senior Scouting items. The only merit badge items were items which had multiple old issues either on a sash or jacket.


What’s Up With Merit Badges?
If you analyze the higest priced individual merit badges offered over the last three months something interesting jumps out. Despite the fact that several rare items were offered…not one sold for over $500. Here are the BigJim award winners among merit badge listings.
