    Does anyone collect mint, unused decks? maybe you still have some thrashed boards around that you once skated? Show them off! I'd like to see just how many people out there love 80's/early 90's skateboarding.

      I've been looking for my first skate on ebay for a couple years now. I haven't been able to find it yet. It was an Acme Bedrock board from 1995. I found a site a while back with TONS of old decks pictured. I can't find the link right now, will post it if I can find it.

          I wish i could remember the name of my board, I remember my friends, "toad prince" or something. Mine was a black deck with skulls of white, and dark purple, and of course I covered it in stickers grip tape, rails, etc.!
          I wish there was a site with a list of names with pics. does anyone know of any?

            There's a book out there called "Disposable: A History of skateboard Art" check it out. It's well worth the money if you like deck graphics - has 'em all!

                Not a deck collector myself, but that's a great set. When I was a kid, I loved those Powell Peralta graphics. I did collect 80's skate and surf decals for a while (T&C designs, etc). The value of some of those original decks are eye-opening.

                    I happen to have nearly all of the boards you have, kayvee. I have a huge collection of decks both old and new that I just refuse to get rid of.

                    Here's one of my favorites I got this in the mid/late 80s.
