    I still have my 1976/77 Castor skateboard that I bought new with the original Tracker Trucks and Banana Wheels or Cadillac Wheels.
    I’d sell it for $5,000!

    Hey, Pop not the bright deck design but the skill . Mungo Goofy along a 6 inch edge at the local carpark hoping that someone's looking not my idea of sk8ing. Always brought blank decks as they never lastest long. Thunder trucks always lasted longer than grid king. Smiths just lame TP

    98-18 at that price; why so much. Those where not even decent years for design and style evolution. I mean nothing happened at all, now had it been say 86-98 then damn, well worth it, this sounds like a tits up business found in a storage unit.

    Heck of a price though.

    Gator...the skater in the half in the Tom Petty video Free Falling...Gator, the skater who murdered his girlfriend. All this did help drive the price of the original silkscreen Vision decks.

    I grew up skateboarding and we called guys like that "posers". The only decks we ever considered hanging on our bedroom walls were the ones we BROKE. What a poser.

Everyone wants to own a piece of their childhood. Original boards from back then can go for a lot of money.
    I never knew that about 'Gator' I never liked that brand for some reason , now I know why.

    I do wish that I still had that Santa Cruz Deck & the Christian Hosoi 'that I never could afford'.

    Funny cause I still own most other things I had from the 1980's Except Bikes as they were always stolen .

    I never knew that about gator either. I got that deck for xmas of 85 or 86 cant remember. My dad thought it would be fun to see how fast I could go down bear creek canyon road in Colorado springs. I really thought I could make those switchbacks, turned out I couldn't.
    Spent xmas day in the hospital that year and boy was my mom MAD!

    Supreme is a stupid hipster brand for rich Manahatan kids who take selfies with their skateboards more than they ride them.
    I have been skating for close to 20 years, and my hatred for Supreme still grows faster than my skills.

The main fact that people need to know about Supreme is that it was not started by a skateboarder and is not owned by skateboarders. Their logo is a rip off / copy / appropriation of art by Barbara Kruger who is a famous artist. They are a company that is arguably the best in the world at using skateboarding to make money. Nothing wrong with making money but they basically appropriated skateboard culture and ran with it. Skateboarders have always prided themselves on independence and doing it yourself so it's ironic that skateboarders have completely embraced the company. To me Supreme is the ultimate interloper and everything they are is a complete ruse. I have to hand it to them they have completely fooled the masses. I liken them to the pied piper and the emperors new clothes and the wolf in sheep's clothing all wrapped in one. The thing about this that is surprising is that the collection didn't break 1 million. There are many fools out there with huge bank accounts. To sum up Supreme they look you in the eye and say "I am going to rip you off and you will love me for it" Then you hand them big bucks for the privilege of it. They are true artists in BS.
    Im confused?? Why is it wrong to make money? I assume you have a job to make money and if the opportunity presented itself you would surely leave whoever you work for in a split second if you could make more money doing the same job for someone else...

    And I'd also bet that if you had that collection of decks you would have quickly sold it off for half that amount just to get the money. Or maybe would would have held out for the full 800k. Either way would you consider yourself evil and greedy?

    My point is this, no one was misled in any way about the products and good money changed hands to make both the seller and the purchaser happy.
