The SMOKEY BEAR ASSOCIATION is the #1 resource for information concerning the history, value and authenticity of Smokey Bear collectibles and memorabilia.
As interest in Smokey Bear related items increases and the availability of these items decreases, the Smokey Bear Association has become the nationally recognized source for answers to questions about manufacturing dates and origins, value, authenticity, and how to buy, sell or locate a special Smokey Bear collectible.
The main goal of the club from its inception is “to find, collect and preserve memorabilia and share information concerning our country’s number one fire prevention symbol, Smokey Bear.”
As the new organization grew, it attracted some of the largest collectors of Smokey Bear memorabilia in the US. The members soon learned the value of making new contacts, networking, and sharing of knowledge to help complete their Smokey Bear collections and preserving the history of Smokey Bear collectibles.
The club ultimately evolved into a nationwide organization with hundreds of members who regularly buy, sell, and trade with each other which would never have been possible without the formation of the SBA.
