Scout Stuff collector’s book

With more than 100 years of history, it’s no surprise that Scouting has seen its fair share of innovation and change. And collecting historic artifacts — uniforms, handbooks, and, of course, patches — from the past is a popular activity with many Scouts and Scouters.

Now, you can teleport back in time with the simple turn of a page in the soon-to-be-released Boy Scouts of America Scout Stuff: A Unique Collection of Memorabilia written by Robert Birkby, author of the Boy Scout Handbook and several other official BSA publications.

See never-before-seen photographs of more than 500,000 historic artifacts from the National Scouting Museum, including uniforms, camping gear, patches, and much more. Each photograph boasts a description with historic background, revealing an intriguing look into the BSA’s past.

The book also comes with an exclusive patch to add to your collection, as well as fun Scouting trivia questions to share with your Scouts.

The patch can also be used to redeem one free admission to the National Scouting Museum to get a glimpse of many of the book’s artifacts in person.

Purchase the book (BSA Supply No. 613201) for $29.99 at or at your local Scout Shop.
