#166: Sidewalk surf

August 11, 2011
Behold the sickest auction on eBay in the Universe:
.
.
Tony Alva for Logan Earth Ski
.
For real?  Not even kidding?
.
From the seller: “FOR REAL. I’m not EVEN Kidding. When TA started Alva Skates, he was done with Logan Earth Ski and gave me this shirt in 1977 when we were roommates for about 6 months up in Malibu. This is the real deal…It needs to be in a Museum as it has some rips and tears, but it’s still one of the Rarest and Coolest Skateboard Tee Shirts ever! Ridden at Wallos and many Pool Sessions, only Logan Team Riders ever got one of these…”
.
Gotta at least try, so I of course lowballed the guy with a friendly offer and got this response: “Hey Man, thanks for the offer but I can’t do it…this really is a museum item so I am having it professionally mounted in a shadow box with the shot of TA wearing it complete with a letter of Authenticity.”
.
If ya gotta have it, go on and get it.

    That is so awesome! 70s skater style is fantastic…and so far removed from me and my world that I would look completely ridiculous if I ever attempted it!
