Holy crap :shock:

That is quite a collection. They would be worth a LOT if ya ever want to offload 'em.

Loving the grey-stained McGill - (prob should leave it without trucks if it's never been set up before, in my humble opinion) and the Cab.

I think the Hosoi picasso is held in pretty high regard by collectors too.Hell, they are all valuable - particularly those in shrink wrap. But what they are
worth is not why people collect. Great skate memories in that bundle too.

Maybe sometime I can get a template off that 1988 McGill to send off to a custom board maker. Loved that shape for vert.

Thanks for sharing.

great looking collection JB, I know I'm an old git but they did make much more interesting boards back then.
cheers for posting.
