Friday Morning Edition
December 30, 2016

Sometimes it's time to sell off a collection that you just don't have any interest in.  This happened to Russell Smart as he figured after not going after all the 100th Anniversary issues why try and complete a partial 75th Anniversary collection from 1985.  He is selling the collection for significantly less than book value on eBay and here is a  link to his listings under bossbaldy.
Vintage eBay Boy Scout Auctions This Weekend
I want to say there was an ISCA article at some point that told the story of the Golden Gate Exposition.  It was happening during the same time frame as the New York Worlds Fair in 1939 and people are more familiar with the memorabilia issued for the Boy Scouts that attended. The neckerchief below is doing pretty well with bidding over $100.
Auctions ending Friday and Saturday on eBay
There are endless opportunities on eBay to try and flip lots.  Normally that strategy involves patches but below here is a listing with OA flap pins selling for about $1 each.  Surely there has to be a market for those pins for $3-$4 at a TOR?
Boy Scout Memorabilia Auctions on eBay
The Sea Scout jumper below includes the coveted blue and white community strip.  This is one of those where you hate to see the uniform stripped of a patch but that could very well happen here.
Santeeswapper eBay Store at Patchblanket.com
Today I've featured many of the Jamboree sets that are available in my eBay store at www.Patchblanket.com.  The 2017 Jamboree sets are coming out and some of them are works of art.  Gone are the days of just having a single JSP to sew on your uniform shirt.
Last night we took the kids to see their very first Charlotte Hornets game.  That feels like one of those things you ought to do if you live in a metropolitan city with a pro team.  We were in the nosebleed seats but enjoyed the game and the ride on the LYNX train to get there.  Going to a Panthers game is still on the bucket list.  This is the final Hot Finds for 2016 and although it's been a year of transition and moving for my family we are looking forward to what the new year will bring.
Have a great weekend,
