Is Boy Scout memorabilia worth money?

Many of the Boy Scout memorabilia on eBay are no longer made. The uniforms, scout books, and badges continue to change over time, making it possible that Boy Scout memorabilia may be worth money. More changes are likely now that girls are allowed to join the organization.
