I don't know why after a retirement the certification should lose in value. I mean only because SCJP 6 was introduced didn't mean that SCJP 5 was useless.

It still shows you have shown initiative and effort to get the certificate. On top of that it still shows that you have a thorough understanding of the Java Programming Language
