Scouting Hot Finds Radio #81: Scott Wheeler 2017 Jamboree Checklist

Scott Wheeler is a Boy Scout memorabilia collector who has a collection with over 100,000 unique items. The only way he can keep track of all these items is by creating checklists. That has led him to create the best 2017 National Jamboree checklist of council issued items. By Scott’s estimation there are around 2000 items issued for this Jamboree including some amazing sets. In our interview we talk about how Scott got started in collecting and as you might guess it goes right back to a Jamboree. We also go off down many other topics is a fun and lively interview with one of the good guys in the hobby.


Jason. Just heard the interview with Scott and loved it. I am another of the nuts trying to collect every issue of 2017 (and 2010 and 2013) so there are at least three of us. I met Scott and Bob Salcido the same day I ran into you at the Jamboree. They were side by side, very cool as I had just completed some trades with both of them prior to the Jamboree. As for your question about interconnecting sets, I would like to think we (Cradle of Liberty)were first in 2010 with our 12 helicopters that fit into our laser cut center patch to make a helicopter rotor.
