I'm sorry that this won't be much help, it's a question.
How do you define memorabilia?
I have always believed it to be collectable items of no intrinsic value but
relating to past people or events.
My Scouts (or their parents!) invest in uniform to wear when necessary and
hardly at all in books directly connected to Scouting. Perhaps there is a
culture difference, or perhaps all their spare cash goes on items (destined to
be the memorabilia of the future) connected to soccer in general and Newcastle
United in particular ;)
