eBay Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter
Sunday Morning
October 9, 2016
The inaugural trip in the Patch Tradin Bus was a big hit.  With Chris Jensen at the wheel and Matt Delk riding shotgun we made the trip from the Carolinas to the Columbus, OH TOR.  Chris has outfitted this bus with shelving to haul all his TOR inventory but saved a few seats behind the driver for his passengers.  We got home early this morning and just in time to get this newsletter prepped and launched.  
Vintage Scouting Auctions Live on eBay
At the TOR I saw a lot of good stuff spread out on the tables.  One frame had an Eagle medal priced at over $2,000.  I don't know if the one I have in today's Hot Finds will bring that but it's certainly an early piece that is getting tons of bids.
Order of the Arrow Auctions Looking Good
It is funny how sometimes things have a way of working out.  About a month ago a gentlemen posted some Air Scout items in the SPC which included three of my big patch needs.  Despite my desperate attempts to work a deal with him another buyer purchased the entire collection. So imagine my surprise when Ben Wasmer who's tables were directly across from mine had the items in his frame.  Yep he was the lucky buyer and I was able to get 2 of the patches that had escaped me from him and now they are in my collection.
Auctions Ending Soon With Bids on eBay
I talked to someone at the TOR about a really nice Girl Scout collection that I may get a shot at later in 2017.  I've got a pretty good collection of books, uniforms and proficiency badges and this collection might have all that and more.  Sometimes the beauty of going to a show is making those personal connections and having conversations that open doors.

As we were riding home from the TOR my phone started cha-chinging as some of my auctions were ending.  Those of you who have the eBay APP know the sound I'm talking about.  Well I've got a bunch more auctions ending tonight including many of the ones linked in here.
All weekend long I got to meet folks that I have never been introduced to in person or only see at things like NOAC.  I probably spent most of the TOR away from my tables just talking with everyone and looking over their stuff.  I did bring home more than I left with which is good for me but not so much with my wife's plan for us to shrink the Boy Scout stuff in the patch cave.
