Info needed on Ed Choby Slides

October 19, 2012

Hi, I came upon these and hundreds, likely more than 500 of 1964 jamboree & philmont items but I'm not a collector. These are signed Ed Choby or just Choby and from my limited research it looks like they are considered the Holy Grail of Boyscout collectables. Any info and values would be fantastic. The snake and the tucan bird are not signed. Thanks in advance.

I wouldn’t necessarily call them the Holy Grail of Scouting Collectibles, but here’s a nice interview of Bruce Shelley on YouTube giving an overview of the Ed Choby slides.

I collect everything related to both Ed Choby and the 64 NJ, which I went to as Scout. I don’t think the Toucan is Choby. That slide was a BSA blank sold by the thousands to camps. I am not sure on the Tarascan Mask slide, unless there is Choby signature on it. The rest look like Choby slides to me. I need the Moose and Snake for my collection and have some interest in the others. Write to me at [email]shelleyotte@comcast.net[/email] if you want to talk about selling them or have more questions. Thanks, Bruce Shelley

Ed Choby was my grandfather. It’s wonderful to see his carvings are still appreciated! My mother inherited his carving skill, but unfortunately I didn’t.
