OLDsCHOOL SKATEBOARDS


SINCE THE INTERNET EXISTS I STARTED TO COLLECT OLDSCHOOL SKATEBOARDS. TAKE A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE AND CHECK OUT THESE SKATEBOARD COLLECTIONS.

IN 2005, REALLY LATE, I STARTED TO SPY ON OTHER EBAY AUCTIONS AND BEGAN TO WRITE A BLOG THAT DESCRIBED ALL THE BOARDS SOLD ON EBAY.de VERY DETAILLED. I DID THAT FOR THREE YEARS AND IN DECEMBER 2008 THE SERVER CRASHED.250+ SKATEBOARDS .jpg WITH DESCRIPTION DOWN THE DRAIN. I DIDN´T QUIT, I JUST WENT UNDERGROUND.SO HERE IS MY NEW EBAY OBSERVER, SPYING ON THE LAST 4 YEARS OF EBAY.de.

AS OLDSCHOOL SKATEBOARD COLLECTORS ARE STILL A RARE SPECIES, IT´S FUNNY TO SEE HOW PRICES RISE IF THERE´S AN ARTICLE ABOUT EBAY HIGHLIGHTS IN A PRINT MAGAZINE, OR, OF COURSE, ONE OF THESE ARTSYFARTSY EXHIBITIONS WITH A SKATEBOARD PRO WHO PRETENDS TO BE AN ARTIST NOW. THE PRICES EVEN ON DECKS WITH SCRATCHED GRAPHICS AND FAKE OLDSCHOOL BOARDS THEN BECOME GROTESQUE.

THESE SKATEBOARD COLLECTORS STRIKE GOLD WHEN THOSE ARTICLES ARE FORGOTTEN AND NO ONE MAKES A BID AT 1pm ON THE BAY. I REALISED THAT THERE´S NO ONLINE HOME FOR SKATEBOARD COLLECTORS IN GERMANY AND EUROPE IN GENERAL. SO I MADE UP A BOARD DATABASE TO COMPARE PRICES OR CHECK THE VALUE OF YOUR BOARD IF YOU BUY/SELL IN GERMANY.


GET IN TOUCH WITH MY FRIENDS AND OTHER COLLECTORS BY VISITING
THE FRIENDS SECTION.

SMILE WHEN YOU´RE HAPPY AND SIGN MY GUESTBOOK.
