Did this board exist or am I having a false memory?
« on: May 05, 2023, 07:36:14 PM »
So, for years Iíve been searching & coming up empty with photos of the first board I bought that wasnít a hand me down. I remember going into the shop & picking out an Anti-Hero Julien Stranger deck with a cartoon gloved hand (think Mickey Mouse) holding a green broken bottle. This wouldíve been around Ď97/Ď98.

Does anyone else remember this? Nothing shows up on Art of Skateboarding. I even reached out to Todd Francis & he didnít remember it.

Maybe Iíve taken too many hits to the head but I swear this was the graphic to my first non-hand me down board.

I don't remember anything about graphics in the nineties. I would check the thrasher archive and I think there's an CCS catalog archive




https://www.thrashermagazine.com/component/coversarchive/covers/#1997

I remember hating flame boy, wet willy and the powell angel and when everyone had a big ol' iron cross on the back window of their truck

I don't know that one, but I'm gonna climb on this subject with my own white whale mystery board from the past.

Sometime in the mid-nineties I ordered a Foundation deck from CCS, I'm 99% certain it was called "Yuckface"
Not to be confused with that "Yuck Fou" character Foundation did later.
I looked through the CCS catalogs in the link above and didn't see it in any of those, but 1995 is missing and that sounds about the right year.
Anyways, I really, really liked the deck for whatever reason and it was the first deck I ever landed a 3 flip on, so it was kind of special to me. Unfortunately, at that age I was still hucking off gaps and I focused the shit out of it jumping some grass gap. I've always wanted to find even just a picture of that graphic again.

Here's a 1 minute mock-up of what I recall it looking like


Familiar to anyone?

@Bummer Vacation I *think* Lotties used to have this board on the wall at the shop. I'm not positive, but you might try to DM Mike and ask? He had a pretty good collection of old Julien/Antihero boards

I think there's a pizza  version of him passing him a slice and I've seen one of them passing a joint.

They ask you not to take pictures in the Vatican which is weak as hell, took pics anyways of the creation of Adam. Nice little country they got there but not a huge fan of the Catholic church but too each their own.

I couldn't find anything under SMA or Underworld Element. The search has taken me to some interesting places though. Julien has a Real board in the National Museum of American History??
