Default The Skateboard collection is coming along nicely... check it out!

Hi guys,
Here's a link to my skateboard collection, it's coming along nicely! Click the link below to check it out:

https://imageevent.com/jeffintoronto/skateboarding

The skateboard stuff is so obscure, my searches have taken me around the globe to add to this collection! If any of you guys have anything that would fit my collection let me know, always looking to pick up something odd! If anyone has any cool skateboard collectibles feel free to post them on this thread too.
Jeff

Those are cool Jeff. I remember breaking my wrist when I was about 11 yrs old, riding a skateboard. In storms we used to get beach umbrellas, hold them up while on skateboards, and race each other until we crashed. We got going pretty fast sometimes.

Super excited to find a 1992 Big Brother Tony Hawk Card. This card was part of a set randomly inserted in a polybagged Big Brother Skateboard Magazine (1992 / Issue 5) and when they do surface are usually in rough condition. This one is real nice!

Nice collection.

I really wish these types of skateboards were around when I was growing up. All we ever had was the metal wheels from the roller skates. We would pound them flat and screw them to a piece of wood…….

Cheers,

B. T.

Can’t even tell you how much I love these!

As someone whos first real board was a bonite Caballero, I miss those names from OG times. Some of my best memories are of jumping on an Amtrak to Portland to live in a bit of a flop house just off the Burnside bridge and riding down there every day to skate the high wall and help build the extensions pouring quickcrete as we widened the park from just being under the bridge.

I got to know many of those pros real well and boy could we party. Ah, the old days.

Thanks guys! In my quest for the "best skateboard card/sticker collection ever" I'm always on the lookout for obscure and oddball pieces. If you all dig up anything let me know! Here's a few more of my recent Tony Hawk pick-ups...

Big shout out to Jarrod (scmavl) for helping me add these cards to my collection. These are 2015 Tracker Trucks: Forty Years of Skateboard History 2" x 3.5" Promotional Cards with a classic Tony Hawk photo! One of the cards is signed by Tracker Trucks co-founder Larry Balma too! These came direct from Larry Balma and are often found stapled to Sticker Packs. These are sweet because they are unused with no staple holes. Thanks Jarrod!

Here's a cool one... and one-of-a-kind too! This is a custom card I made and sent to Tommy a couple of months ago. The card found its way back to me with a sweet signature!

Just in case you didn't know, Jeff. I just seen an advertisement for a Tony Hawk show/movie starting April 5th on HBO.
I believe it is called "Until the wheels fall off" or something like that?

Is there a consensus GOAT in this sport?

Hi Peter,
That is a tough question to answer with one name. I consider these 3 skaters to be the most influential: #1 Rodney Mullen, #2 Tony Hawk, #3 Mark Gonzales. That is the Mount Rushmore of skaters and they all have rookie cards too!

Thanks Jeff. Mullen and Hawk are in a 1989 Argentina set as best I can tell? Perhaps you already posted those didn't check back.

Hi Pete. It all depends on what you consider a rookie to be... card, sticker, or postcard. These are the earliest pieces I've found for the big 3:

Rodney Mullen:
1987 Overall (Brazil) #36 Skateboard Album Sticker (First Sticker)
1987 Powell•Peralta Postcard (First Postcard)
1988-89 Cromy (Argentina) #D3 Skateboard Game Card (First Card)

Tony Hawk:
1987 Overall (Brazil) #31 Skateboard Album Sticker Tony Hawk & Lance Mountain (First Sticker)
1987 Overall (Brazil) #35 Skateboard Album Sticker (First Solo Sticker)
1987 Powell•Peralta Postcard (First Postcard)
1988-89 Cromy (Argentina) #A4 Skateboard Game Card (Error, Photo is Tony Hawk and not Lester Kasai)

Mark Gonzales is a lot easier, he only has one true rookie card but it is super tough to find:
1987 Astroboyz Surfing (First Card)

***The 1987 Overall Stickers I own have the backing paper but have been cut from a panel. Panels came like this:
2 small stickers and 1 large sticker OR 2 large stickers OR 1 Extra Large sticker.
Finding an uncut panel with Tony Hawk would blow my mind!

Thanks for that information Jeff. I consider pretty much any collectible to be a rookie card if it's the earliest (I think). These guys really were just kids on their first cards lol.

Nice list!

I would give Hawk the edge for influence on the sport and his impact on aerial. Mullen very close second as well as the vote for most skilled of all time and Koston in third.

If I took pure skill out and was judging on influence most heavily, it would be hard to leave out Alva. However, there are are hundreds of better skaters.

Can't argue against the Lord Of Dogtown Justin! Here's a few Alva's.

• 1977 Taylorscope Ltd. (Pinback) "Alva Action" (First Button LOL, earliest Alva piece I can find)
• 1983 Lyons Maid Junior Champs (His ONLY Rookie Card)
• 2003 Procore Skateboard Legends Series #01 Sample Card #02 (The only other card that exists for Alva)
• 2013 VANS Promotional Card signed by Tony Alva

This collection is so fun and something that makes me feel like a kid again, I think you just accidentally added competition, lol.

I will be looking for sure!

Please feel free to IM me some auctions if they are for duplicates so I can get a start on without stepping on your toes Jeff.

I can already picture creating awesome groupings like an Animal Chin subset...

Here's my latest and exactly the type of piece I look for! It's a 1988 Powell•Peralta Postcard signed with a note on the back by Ray Barbee!

Here's something really cool I purchased from a professional photographer on ebay. The photographer I purchased this Polaroid from took this photo of Mark Gonzales at a poetry reading on March 7th, 2002 at the Ohio State University Wexner Center.

This Polaroid was signed by Mark Gonzales that same evening and was later published in Issue #12 of Stop Smiling Magazine in 2002!

Got some more real nice 1988-89 Cromy Stickers! Mike Mcgill, a couple Christian Hosoi's, Rodney Mullen, Tony Hawk, and Steve Caballero. The Hawk is the only one of his four stickers in the set to have his name on it.

Here's another one-of-a-kind! This is a custom card I made and sent to Cab almost 6 months ago. The card found its way back to me with a sweet signature! Thanks Cab!

Did you notice that Mark is rocking the original Jordan Air Force 1's in that photo?

Yep, Gonz rocked Jordan's back then (so did McGill). Posted this sticker a few weeks ago, just hit me that Tony Hawk is the skater in the lower right corner!
