Postby tpedretti » April 2nd, 2010, 5:19 am

I have a Slate thats a older Quaker Boy Slate plastic pot on the back it has Quaker Boy Inc across the top then 2 Gobbling Gobblers and then it says in signature form DD Adams and below that Dick Kirby in signature form.

Depending on the collector that call isn't worth much more than what you paid for it. The plastic pots have zero value in my opinion. When it comes to quaker boy, I look for older box calls with Dick Kirby's real signature.

I sold 3 of these in the late 90's and another about 6 years ago, price back in the 90's was $139 and $120. The latest was $$90.

DD Adams used plastic flower pots , and he turned his strikers ....his earlier calls were single slates , they were hand made of wood and were in the shape of a stop sign .....I feel that he is the father of the double slate which call makers today all use.....also the DD Adams award at the National is named for him.....I feel all his calls are highly collectable ...

That's real nice but this is a Quaker boy call of the DD Adams series, not at all a DD Adams call....
