ISCA Roots Trace Back Almost a Half Century
The International Scouting Collectors Association was formed in 2001, when the American Scouting Traders Association (ASTA)
and the National Scouting Collectors Society (NSCS) merged to better serve the collecting community. The previous organization
were RECOGNIZED WORLDWIDE as leading Scouting memorabilia organizations, devoted to the preservation of the hobby. ISCA will
surely follow in their footsteps. ISCA is a not-for-profit corporation with members from all fifty states and from many other
Scouting countries. ISCA is operated by volunteer Scouters well experienced in collecting and trading Scouting memorabilia.
Our primary purpose is to educate the membership and others regarding Scouting
memorabilia and promotion of the ISCA Ethics.
