Ok, first things first - keeping an item wrapped in cheap shrink wrap that's intended for display is just plain tacky. I was just at Winkle's place in Barcelona and all the boards on his wall were still in half ripped shrink wrap, and it looked so shitty. Do you leave other items you bought in the protective plastic wrap? No. Especially not anything you consider art.

If you're worried about reselling it, and for some reason the buyer wants to pay more for a plastic wrapped board, either take a pic of it before you remove the wrap and then just get it re-wrapped when you sell it so nobody's the wiser, or get the inexpensive bags that fit decks and are much better quality than thin plastic wrap that offers almost no protection. Hang the board as usual. The main thing you should be worried about is that displaying a board in any fashion increases the chance that it will warp, compared to keeping it in a well aligned stack of similar concave decks. I would think warpage is more of a concern than whether or not it's in plastic wrap. I store all my collection decks with foam sheets between them, in boxes... and I alternate the 2 or 3 I have on display every few months.

Oh cool. Pick up that name you dropped I don't want it.

That's what you focussed on? Winkle wasn't even there, if that helps. I think of that as a Barcelona landmark, it's been in clips etc in which you can see the boards everywhere. Couldn't care less if anyone thinks that dude is noteworthy.

Oh I didn't read it all I gave up right after the Winkle part. Didn't even read all of this one.

Alright buddy, have fun hanging plastic wrapped skateboards on your wall.

Wait were you talking to me this whole time

If you had misspelled it as "broad" this thread would have been wildly different and possibly illegal.

You can probably get it shadow boxed with a foam backing. Might cost extra but you can sell the shadow box with it to get some extra $$$ from your mark.

i've had such a good time reading through this good night everyone
I want to express my attraction to Morgan Smith. He is such a cutie! I'd love to kiss him, hold hands with him, and snuggle in bed with him. I'm being completely sincere about this.

According to some deck collectors I know shrink wrap does not add value to a board but it sounds appealing to the uneducated buyer, I suppose. There's also some theory that shrink wrap can actually fuck up the paint/ print. Go to Skull and Bones and ask those nerds but from what I've seen most of them take their boards out of the shrink. Hanging it can also warp it over time. Something to think about.
