Sunday eBay Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter October 12, 2014


It’s often hard on a Sunday to decide which auctions to pack into this email newsletter for Boy Scout memorabilia collectors. I’ve always tried to keep it simple and use # of bids and price as my two “votes” for which items make it in. This issue pulls from dozens of sellers which is pretty typical and I hope you enjoy clicking through what I found.

There are a lot of vintage patches in today’s issue which is always welcome. I especially like seeing old felt camp patches as they are favorites of mine.

As many lodges hold their fall fellowships this month and next I expect we will see more and more 100th anniversary items coming out. On Facebook I am already seeing a steady stream of them being reported on the Scout Patch Collectors Facebook Group.

My daughter did a project last year on Hernando de Soto and I’m guessing that might be the Spanish soldier in that Neal Slide below. It’s getting some attention on eBay so I’d say it’s a rare piece. Another one to look out for in this block is the famous sample set from the National BSA that help to usher in the age of CSPs.

I made a little one minute video to promote my OA Sales Catalog that is still running through this week. I’ve got over 1,400 issues up for sale with discounts up to 20%. I’ve had several sales but a lot of good stuff is still available. Click here to check out the catalog.

I will be launching auctions tonight to my eBay store at These are going to be a week long focus on staff items from National Jamborees covering the 1980s-2000s. I’ve got about 200 different pieces in this collection that is going to hit eBay starting tonight.
